Goal

If you have Transaction Accounting Rules that are based on the Distribution Type only and the users forget to select a Distribution Type when creating and processing Transactions (for example Customer Returns (Transaction Group 024) and Usages & Shipments (Transaction Group 030)), the Accounting Lines for these Transactions will be marked in error when running the following process because the system is not able to find any ChartFields values:

* Releases 8.4 to 8.8 SP1: 'Create Accounting Lines' process (CM_ACCTG) (navigation: Cost Accounting, Inventory and Mfg Accounting, Create Accounting Entries, Accounting Line Creation)
* Releases >= 8.8 SP1: 'Cost Accounting Creation' process (CM_CSTACCTG) with the 'Create Accounting Lines' check box selected (navigation: Cost Accounting, Inventory and Mfg Accounting, Create Accounting Entries, Cost Accounting Creation)

So, how can you add the missing Distribution Types to Transactions so that the Accounting Lines can be created?
