    Title:
    Allocation creating negative debits/credits
    Summary:
    Oracle Issue where Allocation creating negative debits/credits, which impacts automation - anyone else experiencing this?
    Content:

    Anyone else experience this issue? If so, how is it impacting you?


    My Team is using allocation rules and the journals that are being created are entering negative debit and/or credit values such that all entries to the target are all debits (all credits) and the allocation offset string is a credit (debit). 

    I expect the rule to enter negative debits as credits. 

    Specifically, the reason we find this issue inconvenient is  we are unable to combine elimination allocation rules into a ruleset with a clearing allocation rules, because manual intervention is required in between those two steps. Diminishes  automation. 

    This is currently reported as an ER (though it feels like a bug) here w/ no ETA: 
    Bug 24578828 : ALLOCATION PUTS TARGET ON DEBIT AND OFFSET CREDIT EVEN IF AMOUNT IS NEGATIVE

    The rule is if the source is dr the allocation will be to dr and if the source is cr allocation will be to cr side. Can you check your specific use case? Check due to the basis what amounts getting allocated. 

     

    Thanks,
