    Expense Charge Account does not default in on creating an Expense Item
    Expense Charge Account does not default in on creating an Expense Item

    We have enabled EXM_ALLOW_FULL_ACCT_OVERRIDE and added the Override Expense Account Allocation privilege to all users - this allows us to update the account on an expense item.  In one environment, the Expense Charge account is defaulted in (and the account is updated from the Expense Item template account), however in another environment (both 19B) the Expense Charge account comes in blank.
    Obviously I have missed a setup step - anyone have any ideas on what I need to do?

      Are the Profile Options in both environments setup the same? They should be, since you are to view the Administrative Profile Values, in both environments.  Nevertheless, I want to ask.  Additionally, I've attached a screenshot of our Admin Profile Values for your review.

      Also, are you using the same user within each environment? Are you trying to view the account string via a delegation?
