Symptoms

The Intercompany lines created by posting are not as expected.

When entering an Intercompany transaction (2 balancing segment values, from 2 different Legal Entities
and within the same ledger), either from Payables or GL, Posting is generating both Intra and Intercompany journal lines. It is expected that in this case, only Intercompany lines would be created by Posting.

The example below  is a manual journal entry:

BSV Assignments:
------------------
BSV 0074001 is assigned to Legal Entity A.
BSV 0730093 is assigned to Legal Entity B.
