Change in AHM To Parent Value in Account Segment Removes Account Type or Changes Qualifier (Doc ID 1566657.1)

Last updated on MARCH 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Account Hierarchy Manager (AHM)

Symptoms

Whenever a change is made in the Account Hierarchy Manager (AHM) to make a segment value to a parent value in the Account segment it removes the account type.
You can however add the type back to the parent in the flexfield key values menu screen.

It not only removes Account Type, it can also change the Qualifier for example from "E" to "Expense", "A" to "Asset" etc...
For example, in AHM:
Case 1: modify existing Parent
old value: "NNANN"
New value: "NNAssetNN"

Case2: create new parent
New value: "NNAssetNN"

Case3: modify existing child
old value:"YYENN"
New value:"YYENN"

This has not worked correctly in the past and has always been an issue.
