Reversal Journal in Secondary ledger Auto Reversed correctly but does not Auto Post (Doc ID 2314956.1)

Last updated on MARCH 25, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Reversal journals created in the Secondary ledger by reversing the primary ledger journal from the journals enter form do not post automatically.

Setup and reproduction steps:
Setups done in the Accounting Setup Manager (ASM)-
> The primary ledger only has one secondary ledger assigned - no other secondary ledgers or reporting currencies.
> No Autopost criteria sets are defined for either ledger.
> The Secondary ledger is defined with Subledger conversion level.
> Secondary ledger Journal conversion rules are defined and set with Autopost checked for the manual journal source. (This is not the same as an Autopost Criteria set)

Journal Source and Category Conversion definitions:
Post Journals Automatically from Source Ledger - Yes
source / category        Transfer Journals to this Secondary ledger
Other/Other                               YES

Steps to reproduce the issue -
1) A journal is manually created in the primary ledger and posted via the journals post form.
2) When posting is run (via journals post form) for this journal in the primary ledger, the posting program creates and posts the secondary ledger as expected.
3) The primary ledger journal is then reversed using the journals enter form and posted using the journals post form in the primary ledger.
4) The secondary ledger journal is automatically created by the reversal program, but not automatically posted in the secondary ledger - expectation is that it would be automatically posted.
5)This journal can be posted manually.
Note: The original journal is created in the secondary ledger by the Posting program run for the primary ledger journal. The reversal journal is created by the Reversal program and not the Posting program.

This has not worked in the past.
