The customer enters 'Reversal Period' and 'Reversal Method' information in Edit Journal UI.
After selecting 'Save and Close' (from dropdown list), system shows Manage Journals UI.

The focus is on the batch just edited, and 'Reverse Batch' button is inactive.
Even after re-query the record, the batch is still focused and the 'Reverse Batch' button remains inactive.

The 'Reverse Batch' button should be active because the selected journal batch has not been reversed yet.
