APXINWKB - Invoices Entry


Goal

How to get the correct account for the tax lines?

Steps:
   1. Responsibility: Oracle Payables - R12.AP.A.3
   2. Path: Invoices -> Entry -> Invoices (APXINWKB.fmb 120.496.12000000.82 )
   3. Create an invoice and save.
   4. Select the Tax Details button and create a manual tax line.
   5. Click on the Allocate button.
   6. Select Item lines to allocate, then click on OK.
   7. On Tax Detail form, click on OK to accept.

The accounts used for the tax lines default to the tax liability account instead of the account distributions of the item line(s).
This should work at the same way as the freight lines which can be allocated to the item lines.
The same problem occurs when using the Calculate Tax button.
