When adjusting an invoice the following error occurs:

APP-FND-00884: There is an empty required flexfield in this row. Enter values
Cause: The flexfield in this row requires values for one or more segments, but it currently does not contain any segment values.
Action: Enter the flexfield window, choose valid values for all required segments, and save your changes.

The cause of the issue is unknown but occurs sporadically when the following steps are followed:

  1. From a Payables Responsibility navigate to Invoices -> Entry -> Invoices
  2. Pull up an invoice that has tax
  3. Discard one of the item lines
  4. Enter a new Item Line
  5. Press Calculate tax
  6. Requery the invoice
  7. One of the tax distributions will have an empty account combination and the account cannot be updated
  8. The error will appear on the screen
