2216091 - Inconsistent Profit Center on Customer Invoice and Relevant Journal Entry


You find the Project Center is inconsistent on Customer Invoice and its relevant Journal Entry.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Choose the Journal Entries view.
  3. Find relevant Source Document then select ID. You will find the Profit Center ID is inconsistent with the one on relevant customer invoice. (Note:on the customer invoice, Sales Unit takes place of Profit Center ID on relevant Journal Entry).


This is an expected system behavior, the Profit Center been changed due to the Sales Unit at the bottom was obsolete when generating the Journal Entry.


The Sales Unit was obsolete when generating the Journal Entry, therefore, system retrieves a different Sales Unit which is more advanced.
