Symptoms

-- Problem Statement:
When creating an expense report from an expense report template, the segments are ALL coming from the expense report template but the cost centre should be coming from the default expense account on the employee record (HR Assignments form, Default PO Account field).

-- Steps to Reproduce:
Payables > Enter > Expense Report
OR
Oracle Internet Expense > Create Expense Report
Choose template and enter Expense types
Notice the account is defaulting all segments from the Expense template rather than populating the Cost Center related segment from the employee's default PO account.
Expect some segments to come from the default expense account on the employee record.

-- Business Impact
Users are having to change the account segments manually which defeats purpose of using a template.
