Goal

When making changes to a PO line in the same accounting period, we are observing that the Budget checking process is overwriting the existing transactions in KK_ACTIVITY_LOG.  How can we see the audit trail of all changes made to a PO line distribution in a given accounting period in the KK_ACTIVITY_LOG.

This issue can be replicated by using the steps below

1) Create a PO with one line and one distribution and approve the PO
2) Budget check the PO and review the entries in KK_ACTIVITY_LOG
3) Increase the Amount on the PO line by $10.00 and approve the PO.
4) Budget check the PO and review the entries in KK_ACTIVITY_LOG

The Budget checking process increases the PO line amount by $10.00 on the existing entries in KK_ACTIVITY_LOG. Hence there is no audit trail of the changes made to the PO line in a given accounting period in KK_ACTIVITY_LOG. We would like to see a reversal for the prior amount and a new row with the updated amount in KK_ACTIVITY_LOG.
