R12: AP/XLA: The Subledger Journal Entry Does Not Balance By Balancing Segment (Doc ID 2558951.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 07, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 and later
Oracle Subledger Accounting - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to run Create accounting for an invoice the following error occurs.

The subledger journal entry does not balance by balancing segment and the ledger option Balance Cross-Entity Journals is not enabled for the ledger <Ledger Name>.
Please update the balancing segment values for each line so that they balance or enable the Balance Cross-Entity Journals option for the ledger <Ledger Name>.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. From a Payables responsibility go to Invoices -> Entry -> Invoices
  2. Create an invoice where the distribution account balancing segment is different than the liability account balancing segment.
  3. Validate the invoice
  4. Go to Other -> Requests -> Run and submit the "Create Accounting" process.
  5. Review the output to see the error
