Last updated on AUGUST 24, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 12.0.0 to 12.0.4 [Release 12.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On 12.0.4 in Production:
When submitting Create Accounting Process foreign currency misc receipts are not transfered to GL and receive the following validation error:

ERROR
The subledger journal entry does not balance in the entered currency.
Please verify the entered amounts on the journal entry lines.


STEPS
1) Enter a negative misc receipt in foreign currency with exchange rate A (Corporate Rate) and GL Date 1 in remitted state.
2) Reconcile the Receipt on the same GL Date 1 but with a different user defined exchange rate
3) Thereafter the receipt was uncleared through cash management on a different GL date. The unclearing activity used the corporate exchange rate.
This results in a negative distribution line and causes the inbalanced accounting entry.
