A default value is defined for the Additional Period Details descriptive flexfield segment.

Why does the value defined not show on the form as a default?

1. Navigate: System Administrator Responsibility > Application > Flexfield > Descriptive > Segments
2. Query flexfield
3. Add segments to the Global Data Elements context  
4. To that context add appropriate segments
5. Click in segment definition for the segment that should have the defaulted value.
6. Enter Default Type = Constant
7. Enter Default = Yes.
8. Log in to application and access the descriptive flexfield.  The new segments show, but the default value is not displayed.
