Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Profitability Management (PFT), after you initially create an Instrument Table to Ledger Stat Allocation, a "Ledger Only" dimension (ex. Financial Element) can be set to <Same As Source> in the Debit / Credit screen even though this dimension does not exist on the instrument table.  Since the column does not exist on the source table, the "Same As Source" option is not valid in this case.

In the picture below, <Same As Source> is listed for Financial Element when the Source table is an instrument table:

You do not expect this option to be available on the Debit / Credit screen for a "Ledger Only" column.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Go to Profitability Management
  2. Go to Rule Specification > Allocation Specification
  3. Define an Allocation that uses an Instrument Table as the Source and Ledger Stat in the Debit / Credit
  4. Save
  5. Edit the Allocation
  6. Go to the Outputs screen

In the Debit / Credit, you can set a "Ledger Only" dimension to <Same As Source> when it does not exist on the Source table.
