In AR, the user can create transactions for different legal entity but for the same operation
unit. In the autoaccounting, defined by operation unit, we assign a value for the company segment
(segment1). In the accounting setups, the legal entity defines the balancing segment.

For example, for unique Ledger, have the following setup:

Legal Entity 1 = LE1 - Balancing segment = 10
Legal Entity 2 = LE2 - Balancing segment = 20

AUTOACCOUNTING (for example Receivable account) OU1 => SEGMENT1 = CONSTANT 10
AUTOACCOUNTING (for example Receivable account) OU2 => SEGMENT1 = CONSTANT 20

The user can create this transaction:

TRX = 1
OU = OU1
LE = LE2

The problem is that the Transaction create accounting with segment1 = 10, and should be segment1 = 20,
because the legal entity is LE2 (balancing segment = 20).

How can this be achieved?
