This is the expected behaviour. When creating your extension field at Item level, you have to make sure that the Business Context of the field is set up proprely to match this Section.

Resolution

Follow the same steps as before in order to create your Extension Field. Before saving, make sure the Business Context is set up to Journal Entry Voucher - Item in the Add New Field prompt screen:

  1. In the Adapt Pane , click on Extension Field
  2. In Sections Enabled for Extension Fields, select Item Details - Manual Posting - Journal Entry Voucher
  3. In List of Fields, click on the Add button
  4. At the top of the new pop-up window, click on the scroll down menu for Business Context
  5. Select Journal Entry Voucher - Item
  6. In Field label enter the relevant information
  7. Click on Save

 The error message is not raised anymore and your Extension Field will now be published in the Item Details section as expected.
