The Payables "Create Accounting" program for invoices is grouping accounting entries at the invoice line level.  Previously in the same situation entries were being created at the invoice distribution detail level.  How can we get the invoice accounting at the distribution levels as in the past?

Example:

Invoice line $100
  Invoice distribution account (4211) $20
  Invoice distribution account (4211) $80

In the past this would result in the following:
Dr 4211 $20
Dr 4211 $80
  Cr Liability 4100

Now it creates the following:
Dr 4211 $100
  Cr Liability $100

Though the accounting effect is the same, users are getting accounting entries in a different pattern.
