Troubleshooting Steps
 1. Intercompany account lines generated by General Ledger do not have the correct company value in the intercompany segment, when I have a journal with debits for two or more companies and credits for two or more companies.
 2. I get 'Error 16 - Unable to balance intercompany accounts' when I attempt to create an intercompany journal which crosses four balancing companies. The log file shows the error - 'Define default intercompany account'.
 3. You  are having a problem entering the line for the All Other balancing segment option on the Intercompany Accounts form.
 4. Automatic intercompany journal lines created in GL when posting a subledger journal, have both debit and credit amounts on one line.  It zero fills where no amounts are applicable.
 5. Release 12
