Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.

  4. Show All Reports and open the G/L Accounts-Line Items Report.

Here under Journal Entry Header Text and Journal Entry Item Text characteristics, the symbol # (unassigned) is shown.

Cause

In this case, the G/L account is a Purchase in Transit Account. These are temporary accounts as these accounts are not direct posting. Instead, it is a clearing account for the direct postings.
