Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Analytics work center.
  2. Select a report that contains Journal Entry details, for Example report Journal (Report ID: FINGLAU03_Q0001).
  3. Enter the required selection criteria.
  4. Add the characteristics:
    1. Journal Entry
    2. Source Doc. ID
    3. Source Doc. Item
  5. For Journal Entry XYZ (XYZ represents the ID of the Journal Entry ID) you notice that Source Doc. Item does not match the ID under Source Doc. ID

You expect that the Source Doc Item would match the Source Doc ID.


Journal Entry XYZ is a cancellation posting. When a cancellation posting is posted to the system, it creates a new source document. However the Source Document Item is connected back to the original document that was posted.


Correct and expected system behavior.
