    how do i add a new field "xxx" in the descriptive flexfield for Account Combinations. This field should be set to "Yes" for the "y/z" votes but "No" for the rest.

    You mean you want to add a new segment to the accounting key flexfield? You need to read the basics of Key Flex Fields. It's there in the manual.

    Well anyways, goto your GL Super User responsibility and Setup->Financials->Flexfields->Key->Segments

    Now search for your accounting flexfield by title, unfreeze it and add the new segment that you want.

    I am assuming you are doing this on a test instance and for educational purposes, because this has very serious ramifications.
