Last updated on MARCH 13, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

You have disabled the default system generated retained earnings account (Code combination window) and provided an alternative account.
However when you open the period for next fiscal year system transfer the balance to default retained earnings accounts which is disabled.

If this is the designed behavior, Would Development change the code to at least have the program fail, so the users would be aware there is a problem?
