Error/ Issue

When copying a journal, it is noted that after user enters the Journal ID, the Date field on the run control page is getting changed to an old date.

Actual Behaviour

For example, for a journal with Journal ID 0000000003. Last month's version of this journal has a journal date of 01/31/2014. On the Copy Journal run control page, the Date is set to 01/31/2014 which is the date user wants. However, after entering journal id, the Date field is getting changed to 05/31/2013. If users didn't pay attention on the date that got changed, they may accidently copy journal from wrong date.

Expected Behavior

If the journal date is going to be changed when you change the Journal ID field, then I'd like it to be changed to the last journal date that was used.

Business impact
If last date is not used, the wrong version of the journal might be used to generate the new copy
