Problem Statement:

Unable to set SAVE_RUN_BALANCE flag to 'Y' for specific Balance category through front end (forms) as it is greyed out and 'Protected Against Update', it is a display only field.

According to the white paper 'Balance Reporting Architecture Phase 1, <Document 245295.1> it should be possible to check this box, but it is protected against update.

Cut and pasted from the document :

'In order to store a balance in PAY_RUN_BALANCES, the column SAVE_RUN_BALANCE on
PAY_DEFINED_BALANCES must be set to ‘Y’. This column will not be displayed on the user
interface, localization's will manually seed this column for those balances they want to be stored.'

Steps To Reproduce:

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. In Payroll Responsibility
  2. Balances form
  3. Query balance, and click on Dimensions button.
  4. See the column 'status' - this field indicates the run_balance_status
  5. This is display only field, they need to update it to yes, according to the white paper if they want it to store balances
