Database field defaulting to a certain value and it should not

Database field defaulting to a certain value and it should not

I converted the Accounts Receivable table from Quickbooks to Macola Progression for a customer. SQL 2008 R2. I put the value ‘QBCONV’ in a user defined field, which makes it easier to segregate, work on or report on those records. Everything went fine and they started January 3rd and have abandoned Quickbooks. Operationally, there have been no issues.

What is beyond weird though, is that all of the new transactions, both invoices and cash receipts, are getting this same value in the user defined field. How the heck can this be happening? There are no 3rd party apps in use, no insert triggers, etc. I looked at the table design to make sure it doesn’t have a default value.

I am at a loss. SQL 2008 R2 for what it is worth. Any insights appreciated.
