We would like to use Future as a segment code and API name, in the Chart of Account Structure.

But when use Future in the COA RI and load the file, we are getting the error "In application 101, key flexfield GL#, structure EM, and segment Future, the segment identifier must begin with an English letter which may be followed by letters or digits and it cannot be a reserved word".

Similarly, when we configure the segment code manually, the above mentioned error occurs for only API name. In manual configuration, we were able to use the word Future for segment code. But,we were not able to use it for API Name.

Is this the expected behavior?

Because, in DEV instance, were able to use the word Future for both Segment code and API name.

In TEST instance, we are able to use Future as segment code, but not as API name. In RI, the validation will fail throwing the Reserved word error.

Is this the expected behavior?
