Symptoms

In Oracle Financial Services Profitability Management (PFT) 8.0.x, you have a Management Ledger table that does not contain all key dimensions.  When you go to define an Allocation on the table, the Allocation screens list all key dimensions, including those that do not exist on the table.  The dimension column(s) is listed in the Source, Driver, Debit and Credit screens.

For example, the LOB_ID dimension is listed on the Debit screen even though it does not exist on Management Ledger:

As a result, you are forced to populate the un-used key dimension with default values.  You expect the Allocation user interface to show only dimensions that exist on the FSI_D_MANAGEMENT_LEDGER table.
