Time Account Minimum Balance Limit is not functioning correctly. Instead of reaching such a limit, once the Time Account deducts all available hours (up to zero hours balance), then the system starts deducting hours from the balances of different Time Accounts.

Reproducing the Issue
- Go to Business Configuration work center
- Select Implementation Projects view or Overview
- Search and Open the activity for Time Accounts - <Country>
- Select Maintain Time Account Types
- Select the relevant Time Account Type PQR
- In the Details section, Minimum Balance Limit has been fixed to -N hours (negative hours)
- Save and Close
The system starts deducting hours from the Time Account PQR balance. However, instead of allowing negative balance (until reaching a maximum of -N hours, as per configuration), when that balance is consumed then it deducts remaining hours from the next Time Account XYZ where balance is positive.
*PQR and XYZ represents the Time Accounts
N represents the number of Hours
The system first deducts from the first Time Account, until it reaches zero (though minimum balance is -N hours).
The system then checks, if the balance is available in the second Time Account.
If is there, it is deducted from the second Time Account without making the first Time Account to negative.
If the minimum balance is -N hours for the second Time Account, and second Time Account is also reached zero, the system then makes the second Time Account to negative.
There are five Time Accounts in the Posting Order. Out of these five, two Time Accounts PQR and XYZ are assigned to the Employee.
The system first deducts from the first Time Account PQR, until it reaches zero (though minimum balance is -10 hours).
The system then checks, if the balance is available in the second Time Account XYZ.
If available, its deducted from the second Time Account XYZ without making the first Time Account PQR to negative.
If the minimum balance is -10 hours for the Time Account XYZ, and the second Time Account XYZ is also reached zero, the system then makes the Time Account XYZ to negative.
The system works as expected.
