Last updated on FEBRUARY 24, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Project Costing - Version 12.0.1 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.0 to 12.1]
Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.0.1 to 12.1 [Release 12.0 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Due to the Balancing Segment Value (BSV) being incorrectly assigned to the Ledger rather than the Legal Entity, the process "PRC: Create Accounting" ends in error and does not post transactions to General Ledger.

The Accounting Events inquiry shows that many accounting events have the following error:

The subledger journal entry contains lines with balancing segment values that are not assigned to any legal entity. Unassigned balancing segments cannot be used to balance a subledger journal entry with balancing segments already assigned to a legal entity. Either update the balancing segment value assignments for the ledger REI or update the balancing segment values used on the subledger journal entry.
