Why does having a line item called FREIGHT cause a totals imbalance?


We are using an item name of freight (not to be confused with freight iteself) as a item. When  tax calculates, it is only showing tax amount, not showing item amount including tax

  • The item code "FREIGHT" is hard coded to be used to pass the freight field on the totals tab.
  • Any other item code, even misspelling "FREIGHT", can be used.
