Goal

How does the xla_distribution_links table map back to the Payables subledger for both invoice and payment accounting?

Note: Upstream transactions refer to events that are part of a business flow that must be reversed. For example, when an invoice is accounted, the liability account is credited. So when the payment that pays the invoice is accounted, the business flow logic looks for the liability account and amount from the invoice that it pays so that the liability can be debited for the amount that the invoice accounting event credited. The invoice liability accounting event in this case is the "upstream" transaction and the payment liability accounting event is the "downstream" transaction.
