Receipts Workbench Issue: When Applying a Foreign Receipt / Credit Memo With Amount Applied = 0.00 (zero) Unbalanced Accounting Entries are Created

(Doc ID 310959.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 25, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 11.5.9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
FORM:ARXRWMAI - Receipts , Apply Credit Memos
RAXTRX - AutoInvoice


Symptoms

Receipt application with amount applied 0.00 (zero) belonging to a foreign currency receipt is unbalanced and printed on the unposted items report.

The loss entry has wrong distributions for the receivables line (source_type = REC) (it's debited instead of credited).
The wrong entries can be seen under Tools > View Accounting for the receipt.

If an exchange gain is generated the accounting entries are fine.
The same could happen for foreign currency Credit Memos which are applied with 0.
