A rule is built to have a combination valid between an alternate account and a department. If the rule is used on GL and the combination is invalid an combination error will appear if the rule is used on AM when creating an asset and the combination is invalid an combination error will NOT appear and normally should appear a combination error.

1-Create rule between alternate account and department: Combination Definition, Chartfield Combination Editing Group, "Ledgers For A Unit" ,Build Combination Data Request
2-Add a manual Journal and use the Alternate Account 211003 without Department. Process 'Edit Journal¿, the Journal Status will be 'Error'.
3-Add the Alternate Account 211003 to the Asset Category AUTO. The Alternate Account can be added, although there is no valid mapping with the Account.
4-From the Express Add component, attempt to add an asset that has Asset Category AUTO and leave the Department ID empty. There is an invalid chartfield combination as defined by the rules setup in the data setup but when the "Save" button is clicked, there is no error message invoked.An combination error should appear
5-Run the Depreciation Calculation, Create Accounting Entries and Review them to see the Alternate Account 211003 is used.
