Symptoms

Attempting to create a chargeback and receive the following error:

APP-FND-00676: The flexfield routine FDFGDC cannot read the default reference field specified for this descriptive flexfield.
The developer specified a context field (via the Register Descriptive Flexfields form) that does not exist in this block of this form.

Steps to Reproduce:

Create a Transaction with Type as Workshop.
Worked as expected.
