AGIS: Intercompany Rule is not Being Applied Because it is End Dated and Error Occurs: Error 16 - Unable to balance intercompany accounts (Doc ID 2434054.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 16, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Error 16


Intercompany Rule may be as follows: 
Rule 1: XXX....... start date: 01-JAN-1951      End date: 17-JUL-2018     'Use for balancing' not enabled
Rule 2: XXXX......  start date: 18-JUL-2018     End date: blank              'Use for balancing' enabled

Expectation is that a journal created on July 17, 2018 will use rule 1 for balancing when journal is posted.

When the journal is posted on  July 18, 2018, the posting fails with an Error 16 - Unable to balance intercompany accounts.

The transaction date is 17-JUL-2018.
There is a valid rule (rule 1) for this date 17-JUL-2018.
Why is it not being used for balancing the journal lines ?
