Posted invoices can be modified (Doc ID 1543791.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2017

Symptoms

It is still possible to update accounted and posted Item distributions with inclusive tax.

Patch 9499176 for Code Bug 9068689 was supposed to prevent this but it did not.

APlists confirm ITEM distribution with invoice_distribution_id xxx had amount yyy and posted_flag = Y.
But still the same distribution has got changed to amount zzz. This should not be possible.
Accounting process will not pick up distributions with posted_flag Y so this change will not change xla_lines or xla_distribution_links table and will cause issue with trial balance too.

It is expected that invoice distributions get correctly updated in Invoice Validation after changing invoice amount and lines.
Posted distributions should not get changed like they do now.

Due to this issue, invoices will end up with incorrect accounting.

There is GDF for that already but the customer is expecting to have a code fix as well.
