Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Created a new earnings element with 'Supplemental Earnings' Classification. The generated base balance is created with 'Earnings' category, instead of 'Supplemental Earnings'. After checking some older supplemental earnings elements, it was found their balances have the Supplemental Earnings category.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create new element with category = Supplemental Earnings from the Earnings form
2. Check the balance for the new element and find it has category = Earnings
