Symptoms

In SLA against the Journal Line Type there is an option to merge matching lines

Steps to reproduce:

1. Go to Payables > Setup > Accounting Setups > Subledger Accounting Setup >                                                    Accounting Methods Builder > Journal Entry Setups > Journal Line Types

    Query Application - Payables
    Owner - Oracle
    Event Class - Invoices
    Line Type AP_LIAB_INV basic Liability

2. Click Find

3. Check the merge matching lines = Yes

This option is used to merge matching lines, normally the Liability line type so that invoices with multiple lines but the same liability code combination for each will only have one liability line.

However even if this option is checked there are separate liability lines for Item and Tax lines with the same Code Combination (for example).
