Why does req pre-encumbrance balance only look at detail KK ledger?

We are wanting to finalize POs to return requisition pre-encumbrance overages back into the budget. For example, we have a req for $99.00 and this results in a PO being created for $95.00. We desire to finalize the PO in order to return the remaining $4.00 back into the budget.

However, in the case of this req it is being charged to a project that we have configured to be captured by a KK ledger NOT marked as our detail ledger. Therefore, the balance on the req for the remaining encumbrance shows as zero, only due to the fact that the view RQ_PENCM_DIS_VW is being used and this view only includes the ledger marked as a DETAIL KK ledger.

Once we drill into the balance we are able to see the KK accounting lines and therefore see a remaining balance (due to the fact that this page calculates remaining encumbrance by summing the accounting lines, not running a view that restricts balances to the DETAIL ledger.

See the attached Word document for some screenshots.

IS there a FUNCTIONAL reason why PeopleSoft will only show a remaining encumbrance if the req's distribution places its amounts on the DETAIL KK LEDGER?
