Symptoms

General Ledger Launch Journal Wizard is not validating the precision correctly and uploads records resulting in an unbalanced error during import.
The defective patch:5646718, may have been installed to resolve the precision issue, but, after patch install users are still not able to upload even balanced journals. The error:  "Entered amounts for journal 1 is not balanced" is now received.
This issue does not occur with other integrator, and also happens with a new template.

Steps to reproduce :
Go to General Ledger responsibility > Journals > launch journal wizard
Enter the document parameters and click on create document
In the excel that gets downloaded , enter the lines and upload the journal
Check the result of the upload
