In earlier versions, you could change the account type for the main account and the offset account for payment journals for customers (payment receipts) and vendors (payment distributions). By preventing changes to the main account type and limiting changes to the offset account type for payment journals, this feature helps clarify the purpose of payment journals, whether for customers or vendors, and might help prevent errors that could occur if these account types were inappropriately set.
For customer payment journals, the Main account type will be set to Customer by default and you won't be able to change it. The new validation process will verify that the offset account type is not set to Customer.
For vendor payment journals, the Main account type will be set to Vendor by default and can’t be changed. The validation process will verify that the offset account type for vendor payment journals is not set to Vendor.
