GLXJEENT Journal Entry Modified Accounted Amounts in Primary Ledger Are Recalculated for Reporting Ledger (Doc ID 1922032.1)

Last updated on MARCH 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:GLXJEENT.FMB - Enter Journals/Encumbrances

Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Reporting Currencies

Modified accounted amounts in GL - Journal Entry in the Primary Ledger are not replicated in the Reporting Ledger. Entering, modifying and posting the journal entry occur without any issue.

When accounted amounts are overwritten in the Primary Ledger, those overwritten amounts are not copied to the Reporting Ledger journal, instead it is calculating the accounted amounts based on the conversion rate defined for the Primary Ledger journal and creating the Reporting Ledger journal with converted amounts.

This causes the Primary Ledger and the Reporting Ledger, having the same currency, to become different where not required.
This issue occurs only when journal entry in the Primary Ledger has the same currency as the journal entry in the Reporting Ledger.

Expect that the journal entry is replicated in the Reporting Ledger exactly as it is in the Primary Ledger or to be able to change the accounted amounts also in the Reporting Ledger journal entry, as it is allowed in the Primary Ledger.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create Primary Ledger journal in foreign currency.
2. Overwrite the accounted amounts of the Primary Ledger journal.
3. Post the journal which creates the Reporting Ledger journal.
4. Query the Reporting Ledger journal and verify the accounted amounts.
