Symptoms

 
Issue:
-------

Spreadsheet Journal Import allows a user to upload additional lines to a valid journal (JRNL_HDR_STATUS = 'V'). When this happens the journal can get posted without being edited again since the additional line does not update the header status (or timestamp).


Steps To Replicate:
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Add 4 lines – 2 lines for each business unit US001 and US005
2. Edit, mark to post but do not post.
3. Add another journal with same journal_id /date, but with different business unit us007
5. Click on Upload Now button.

Actual Behavior:
------------------

Pop up says it does not upload the journal with same journal id/date, but the process does add a line to us005. Also the journal header status is not changed back from 'V' to 'N'.
