Payment adjustment for Amount in Revenue Update Batch changes Designation automatically

A Payment is entered in an Enhanced Revenue Batch and an Appeal is added that autopopulates the Designation that is associated with it. The Designation is manually adjusted for the Payment and the batch is committed.

When the Payment is adjusted in a Revenue Update Batch to adjust the Amount, the Designation reverts back to the original Designation that is associated with the Appeal and does not retain the Designation that was added for the payment prior to committing it.
