Currently in Update 28 if you post free text invoice lines against the same main account, but different financial dimensions, when you look at trial balance transaction lines, the description is stamped from the first line of free text invoice on all the lines. For example: FTI line 1 Description Main Account Department Test 1 100100 IT Test 2 100100 Sales In trial balance it appears as Test 1 against both lines. The suggestion is to stamp Test 1 against first trial balance transaction line and Test 2 against the second trial balance transaction line.

An answer that it works by design is very typical when MS team didn't think it through.

It should not work this way as the ledger report is totally misleading.

"Working as its designed to function" according to Microsoft on the issue 407146 - if it was designed to function this way then it was designed poorly. There is no reason that the description for the first line on the invoice would have any relevance to the subsequent lines on the invoice. If this is something that isn't going to be fixed it would be better to just have a generic "Free text invoice" voucher description to avoid confusion.

This is particularly poor if you are selling multiple fixed assets on one Free Text Invoice with the description as the fixed asset name. The revenue account just shows the description from line 1 asset so in the GL it appears you have sold the same asset over and over again. The description posting level needs to be in line with the invoice lines descriptions
