Value 'Y' Column Display_description_flag In Table Xla_descript_details_b Doesnt Work (Doc ID 1261214.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 22, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 12.0.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Column display_description_flag (table XLA_DESCRIPT_DETAILS_B) when the value is "Y" does not work, and the description is null.

What should occur when the 'Display Account Description' flag is enabled, is that the journal entry  description should display the accounting flexfield segment value description entered on that particular description detail.

For example, a source used in the description detail derives the value of a particular segment in the accounting flexfield as '2210'. This value will be displayed in the journal entry description. When the above discussed flag is enabled then the description of the value 2210 i.e. 'Accounts Payable' should be displayed.
