Symptoms

Some of the Journals are directly moving to Approved status even though they have the journal source ( effective dated) entitled for Approval workflow.

An example of configuration are listed as below:
- Current effective dated row = Require Approval
- Historic effective dated row = Default to Higher level ( BU/LEDGER level setting is 'Default to Higher level' and BU level setting is 'Pre-Approved' hence no approval is required in this case)

 
STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Create a Journal with source that is entitled for Approval workflow.
2) Edit the Journal
3) Submit the Journal for approval.
4) Journal moves to Approved to Post status.
