Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Select the relevant Invoice.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Press View All.
  6. Go to the Document Flow tab.
  7. Open the Journal Entry.

System posted into a Migration Account, for example '990070 - Initial Data CarryForward Unbilled Payables'.


The Migration Account was used because the referenced Inbound Delivery in the Cost Distribution of the Invoice is not a document that has been created in the system.

The migrated document can be identified in the Document Flow of the Invoice, you will note that the Document ID of the Inbound Delivery is grayed out.

When there is a migrated document involved in the chain, it will be taken into account which is why the Item with migrated document posted into G/L Account '990070 - Initial Data CarryForward Unbilled Payables'.


System is working as designed.
