ISSUE/ERROR
================
The tree flattener process (OI_TFLT) populates the flattened tree table, OI_TFLT_DEPT, with the full hierarchical tree structure for each node. However, if a node description on the node table has a different effective date than the tree effective date, the node description is blank.


EXPECTED RESULTS
==================
Tree flattener should use the most recent effective dated row to be consistent with how tree manager usually works


ACTUAL RESULTS
================
When multiple effective dates exists for a tree , the tree leaves the description blank after using the tree flattener because it is looking for data related to the wrong date

BUSINESS IMPACT
==================
Tree manager showing inconsistent descriptions and this is confusing
