ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
When you click to Assign Intraunit groups on the Journal Entry line page, you can leave the values for the balancing chartfields blank.
This create intraunit lines using these blank chartfields.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Shouldn't the system force you to enter values for these fields since they are defined as balancing chartfields and you don't want to balance to blanks (at least a warning message)?

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Make sure Ledger Group is balanced by Fund Code.
  2. Combo Edit is setup where Fund Code is a required chartfield.
  3. Enter an Intraunit Journal (line 1 and 2 have a different Funde Code).
  4. Run online journal edit and Intraunit lines are created as expected.
  5. Now, click on the Inter/IntraUnit button to open the Inter/IntraUnit Groups section. The lines are now assigned IU group 1. Don't key in any values for your anchor chartfields.
  6. Edit Journal and now it uses the blank values as the anchor for the intraunit line creation.
  7. If you click the Inter/IntraUnit button you must define the values that you want to use as the anchor. Define the values for anchor values and edit (re-edit) and the correct intraunit lines are created. It should warn/stop you from leaving it blank, but it doesn't.
