Translation Creates Balances for Asset/Liability Account Even if Net Functional Balance is Zero
Last updated on JULY 10, 2018
Applies to:Oracle General Ledger - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Translation is creating balances even for disabled Asset, Liability accounts having net activity/balance for functional currency = 0.
Balances created are equal on DR / CR so there is no impact, still GL_BALANCES table is affected for these codes influencing customizations. Some standard reports (eg. Trial Balance) run for the translated currency show activity (DR = CR) for accounts where there is no activity in functional currency similar report.
Expected for Translation to skip such accounts since there is no data to be translated.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. GL Responsibility > Submit Translation process
2. Observe it creates data even for disabled accounts with no activity
