On R12, When attempting to create a clause, the following error occurs:

"An assignment does not exist for these parameters and one is mandatory. Cause: The profile option
Sequential Numbering is defined to have sequential numbering always used. The current set of
parameters does not have a sequence assigned. Action: Go to the Assign Sequences screen and assign
a sequence to the current set of parameters."

Clause Creation is expected without error because the system has been setup.
At this point, It is not possible to create clauses and no workaround is available.

Steps To Reproduce:

A. Application Setup
(R) System Administrator responsibility:

1. Navigate to Application -> Document -> Define.

2. Create an entry with these values:
Name = OKC_Contracts
Application = Contracts Core
Type = Automatic

3. Navigate to Application -> Document -> Categories.

4. Create an entry with these values:
Application = Contracts Core
Code = OKC_Contracts
Name = OKC_Contracts
Description = OKC_Contracts

5. Navigate to Application -> Document -> Assign.
Create an entry with these values:
      Document tab -
Application = Contracts Core
Category = OKC_Contracts
Name = OKC_Contracts
Set of Books = Desired Set of Books
Method = Automatic
    Assignment tab -
Enter Start Date
Sequence = OKC_Contracts
Note: The start date for this entry cannot be earlier than the start date for the document sequence.
If so, the sequence will not appear in the list of values.

6. Navigate to Profile -> System.
Search for the profile OKC:Clause Sequence Category.
Select the value OKC_Contracts at the site level and save the entry.

B. Issue:
(R) Contract Terms Library Administrator.
Now Navigate to Clauses.
Create Clause
You will receive the error message

Due to this, Clauses for Contracts cannot be created.
