Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version: 11.5.0 to 11.5.10.3 - Release: 11.5.10 to 11.5.10
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:ARXRWMAI.FMB - Receipts

Symptoms

Incorrect accounting entries getting generated when the Amount Applied is less that the Discount amount. For example:-

Invoice A was paid less cash discount but originally the cash discount was not allowed.
You now receive a payment for Invoice B. When applying cash to Invoice B, you decided to allow the unearned cash discount on Invoice A.
For this purpose, you create an application for Invoice A, with Amount Applied as $0 but enter the Unearned Discount as say $1.
When this application is saved it causes an unbalanced Journal entry and hence comes up as unposted during AR to GL Transfer.

Another example would be Amount Applied = -3 and Discount = 7
