The invoice gets a "Dist Acct Invalid" hold with hold reason "Distribution account is invalid."

This is because the distribution accounts related to the invoice are inactive now.

When trying to release the hold manually the following message is displayed:

APP-SQLAP-10009: You cannot manually release this type of hold.
Correct the condition that caused the hold and resubmit validation.
