Setting Up Depreciation Override in Oracle Assets

Depreciation Override allows you to optionally override the depreciation amounts calculated by Oracle Assets. Using this feature, you can manually override the calculated default depreciation amounts for standalone and group assets. Before running depreciation or performing adjustments, you must provide the necessary information in the Depreciation Override window or the FA_DEPRN_OVERRIDE table, and indicate whether the override data is for depreciation or adjustments. When running depreciation, the system will upload and use the depreciation amounts provided in the interface table. This  feature uploads and overrides the system calculated depreciation amounts with the amounts you provided in the override interface table. Prerequisite:- The only per-requisite for using this feature is to setup the profile FA: Enable Depreciation Override to Yes Note that for MRC-enabled books, you do not need to provide the override amounts for the reporting currency books. The system will derive the reporting currency values based on the ratio of asset cost in the reporting currency to asset cost in the ledger currency. There are two way in which we can input the override values in Oracle assets i.e 1. Using the Depreciation Override window:- Navigate to the Depreciation Override window i.e Depreciation > Override Query the assets records you wish to modify, enter the asset number, book, and period of the asset in the rows of Depreciation Override window. In the Depreciation field, you can enter the override depreciation amount. In the Bonus Depreciation field you can enter the override bonus depreciation amount. In the Use By field, you can select the adjustment type of Depreciation or Adjustment. The default value is Depreciation when creating a new record. The Status field displays the current status of the override record, which may be New, Post, or Posted. If the status is Post or Posted, you cannot update the record, you can only delete the record and reenter the updated record. Select Save from the menu to save your work. 2. Using the FA_DEPRN_OVERRIDE table:-  Define the override data in the FA_DEPRN_OVERRIDE table. In the FA_DEPRN_OVERRIDE table, enter all basic override depreciation information: BOOK_TYPE_CODE, ASSET_ID, PERIOD_NAME, DEPRN_AMOUNT, BONUS_DEPRN_AMOUNT and USED_BY. You can provide depreciation amounts for depreciation expense and bonus expense separately using the columns: DEPRN_AMOUNT and BONUS_DEPRN_AMOUNT. Define either DEPRECIATION or ADJUSTMENT in the USED_BY column depending on your requirement. Note that you can assign multiple override data for each asset as long as PERIOD_NAME and USED_BY do not overlap for records with a non-posted status. For more information on depreciation override functionality, please refer Oracle Asset User Guide

Foreign Currency Lease in Property Manager – An Overview

In today’s modern world with the globalization, it is quite common for any organization to have business spread across different countries. In this case, to run their business, organization will end up taking leases in the country in which they are operating and these lease payments need to be done in a foreign currency. To meet this growing requirement of organization, Oracle Property manager enhanced to handle the foreign currency leases.  In property manager a billing / payment term can be entered in any other currency than the functional currency of the ledger. When a payment term is created with foreign currency, billing / payment amounts are converted into functional currency based on Conversion rate type specified in the Currency Conversion Type system option. Conversion Type specified in Reporting Currencies window for the functional currency. This will be used only if the Conversion rate type is not specified in system option Entering the conversion rate manually in Payment terms window. This can be entered only if the Conversion rate type is set to ‘user’ in System Option. Currently in property manager, the exchange rate can be derived in two different ways User Defined Exchange Rate – In system options you need to select the currency conversion type as user and in this case system will allow user to enter the required exchange rate at lease level itself and all future transactions for the lease will be converted based on this user defined exchange rate. Automatic derivation of Exchange Rate from GL – In System options, if the currency conversion type is set to “Corporate” or any other conversion type, system will automatically derive the exchange rate based on the conversion type. For converting the foreign currency to functional currency, system uses the transaction and system date to determine the rate. If you are using the oracle property manager & Equipment lease solution to meet your IFRS & USGAAP reporting requirements for lease accounting, then the exchange rate for foreign currency leases will be derived based on below logic For more information on the foreign currency leases, please refer the Property Manager User Guide

FAH: 'OVERWRITE' Merge Option In Import AAD Is No Longer Available

FOR FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING HUB (FAH) APPLICATIONS ONLY, the "Overwrite" option has been removed from the Application Accounting Definition (AAD) Import application since RPC5.   The 'Overwrite' option has been replaced with 'Purge Application Accounting Definition Setup'. When 'Purge Application Accounting Definition Setup' parameter is set to "Yes" then: • The existing AAD is cleared. Before the clearing the existing AAD is exported to the directory specified by newly added parameter "Destination Directory Path", • The new AAD is imported. This functionality is equivalent to the "Overwrite" option. So, when using, you should be able to import older versions of AAD’s. Example: PARAMETERS   AMB Context Default Source File Path name <full path to your file being imported> Merge Analysis No Import Option Merge Validate No Purge Application Accounting Definition Setup Yes Destination Directory Path <full path to a directory where the old ADD to be saved> Purge Application Accounting Definition History No Note: These parameters are greyed out for seeded applications.

Rxi Reports in Fixed assets – An Overview

In today’s world, for any business organization which could be a small business organization or an MNC, generating reports for management reporting or for tax authority / compliance reporting is one of the major task. In Oracle application, we have many standard reports to extract the different set of data in each of the subledgers that you are using. However these standard reports will have fixed format / columns and they cannot be modified / changed to meet the reporting requirement of the organization. This restriction of standard report, can be over come by using Rxi reports. In Rxi reports all formatting and column information is defined and maintained in attribute sets. Each RXi report comes with one or more attribute sets / Predefined columns. You can use these attribute sets window to view columns available in the rxi report and you can also add and substract columns for each of these pre defined rxi reports  in the format and data that your company need. From fixed asset point of view, for most of the fixed format reports, we have parallel rxi reports which means you can view and manipulate the report data in the desktop application of your choice. For example, you can download the information into Microsoft Excel and sort, analyze, and manipulate the report data using familiar spreadsheet features. You can also format the report as an HTML file and place it on your Web server or directly into the database for general access. For more information on the list of Rxi reports available in fixed assets, how we can modify / change the attribute sets of these reports etc. refer document 2237957.1.

New Enhancements Done for Property Manager IFRS and Equipment Lease Solution

Recently a new Cumulative patch is released for the Property Manager IFRS and Equipment leasing solution. The patch details are 12.1.3 - 29789413:R12.PN.B 12.2.X - 29789413:R12.PN.C In the above cumulative patch, in addition to few regular bug fixes, few major enhancements are also done to the product. Below is the a quick glimpse of those enhancements Linking of Payment Terms :- Currently in Property Manager or Equipment lease, we cannot update most of the attributes of a payment term once it is created. So currently when ever there is a change in any of the attributes of payment term like payment amount, frequency, schedule day etc, we need to contract the existing payment term and create a new one.   When a new payment term is added as a replacement of outgoing payment term(contracting), the applications treat them as different terms. As a result, the ROU balances are not carried forward +/- remeasurement value and instead, the ROU balance is recalculated. As a result of recalculation of Liability, the re-measurement amount is not captured but in its place Liability/ROU are calculated afresh from the new term. To over come this issue, we have released a new API to link an existing payment term to a new payment term that is being added. The API will end date the existing payment term and will create a new payment term with reference to the existing payment term that is being end dated. Cancellation of Options :- Currently once an option is created which is not yet exercised, we can only terminate the option to reverse the effect of it on ROU and Liability balances. Going forward we can cancel an option which is in future date and not yet exercised. Multiple Amendments api for Equipment Leases :- The amendment API for equipment lease has been enhanced to handle multiple amendments in the same period. Going forward, we can perform multiple amendments on a lease not only via application, the same can be done via API as well. In addition above major enhancements, we have also enhanced the lease expense calculation while performing an amendment. For more details on these enhancement, refer the Property Manager IFRS & Equipment lease Info center Document 2482062.2 .

Fixed Assets

Setting Up System Control – An Insight View

While implementing fixed assets, setting up system control is the one of the first and most important setup as this is a onetime setup and also a instance level setup rather than asset book / operating unit / Ledger specific setup. So all the fixed assets books which will be implemented  in the current instance will use the key flex field structures setup at system options level. Below setups are done at system control level Enterprise name - Enter the name which you want to see in reports. This name can be altered / changed even at a later stage Oldest date placed in Service – Determines what is the oldest date placed in service with which the asset can be created in the application and it also determines the date from which all the calendars, fiscal years etc needs to set. You can only update the Oldest Date Placed in Service BEFORE you assign any calendars to depreciation books. Flex field Structures- Enter the Location, Category, and Asset Key Flex field structures you want  to use. Starting Asset number - Enter the Starting Number at which you want Oracle Assets to begin automatically numbering your assets.  If you are converting from another system and would like to keep the asset numbers same as the legacy system then the starting asset number entered in system control has to be greater than the number of assets which you want to convert. It is recommended to take the number of assets that you have/want to convert and start with the next highest potential. Example: If you have 6500 assets convert from legacy system, then enter the starting asset number as any number higher than 6500. Automatic asset number is generated by sequence FA_ADDITIONS_S and this sequence is applicable to all the books in a instance. For e.g if you have multiple books in a single instance, then the automatic asset numbers will be assigned to both the books depending on the sequence of addition and the numbers will not be in sequence at book level. Last asset number used – This field automatically gets updated based on the maximum value used in FA_ADDITIONS_S sequence. For more information on setting up system options and each of above options, please refer asset user guide.

Property Manager - Migration Process for IFRS And US GAAP Regime

As we all know, all the customers who are following IFRS / US GAAP accounting standards has to switch to new reporting / accounting process with effect from 1st Jan 2019. All the existing customers who are already using the existing property manager functionality and have their leases running in the Oracle EBS property manager, need to migrate their existing leases from current property manager solution to new IFRS regime. When it comes to transition from current property manager system to compliance accounting, we have 3 available options i.e Continue existing normalized and AP accounting or invoices Generate only compliance reports and do not generate any accounting from property manager Uptake the multiple GAAP accounting (IFRS, US GAAP, and existing normalization accounting) in primary and secondary ledgers Below is the quick overview of each of these options I. Continue Existing Normalized and AP Accounting or Invoices Under this, there will not be any calculation of ROU / Liability balances and no interest expenses will be calculated. Under this user will not be selecting any of the compliance related attributes / setups and it will work as current property manager functionality is working i.e accounting entry is generated when AP invoice is created and when normalization entry is interfaced to GL. II. Generate only Compliance Reports and do not Generate any Accounting from Property manager Under this approach, using property manager solution, organizations can generate ROU / Liability balances and interest and amortization calculation etc. and they can also generate the reports to extract these balances. But under this approach, there will not be any accounting entry that will get generated / interfaced to GL. III. Uptake the Multiple GAAP Accounting Under this approach, customers not only generate the compliance related reports using property manager solution, but also generate the accounting entries required for compliance accounting and also interface them to General ledger. Note :- Customers who are adopting the Modified Retrospective Approach, need not run Calculation program for previous period in final mode i.e step number 5 in the above flow. They can directly run the calculation program as of transition date with method as "Modified Retrospective". This parameter is non-mandatory. When you select a value Modified Retrospective Method as the parameter for Method, the system will take into consideration all cash flows on and after 1st day of the transition date period. You can run the above program if you want Modified Retrospective Method numbers only. Based on Report From Inception flag you can control if you want cash flows from lease commencement to be considered into calculations. This new parameter will help you start calculations from the transition month in contrast to earlier method of resorting to previous month. You can still run Calculate ROU Asset and Liability Balances for each of the previous months for which numbers are needed to be reported. However, the new parameter does not depend/continue those balances into calculation of balances as on 1st day of the transition period. Currently, the parameter can only be used for transition calculations in Final mode only and through a subsequent fix. Draft calculations will also be provided soon. For more information on each of these options, refer our Info center document 2482062.2 .    

As we all know, all the customers who are following IFRS / US GAAP accounting standards has to switch to new reporting / accounting process with effect from 1st Jan 2019. All the existing customers...

Introducing the EBS Period Close Process Analyzer available now for download and use.  This analyzer is different from the period close product based analyzers.  This is a business flow analyzer that will scan posting items across all EBS products and let you know which products have pending items in your subledgers that will prevent you from closing the period in General Ledger. Currently, this analyzer will scan posting-related items across the following EBS Products: Lease Management Channel Revenue Management Order Management Cash Management Payables Receivables Purchasing Cost and Inventory Projects Fixed Assets and finally the General Ledger The EBS Period Close Process Analyzer 200.1 DocID 2468739.1 Many EBS products send accounting information to General Ledger (GL). However, there is no control within the GL period close process that would prevent a user from closing the GL period prematurely. The above output shows the summary on the left and each product on the right.  If you have a warning or error you will want to click on the application to get more details. We can make an analogy of the EBS products as being passengers on a train, and the train is General Ledger. The passengers are in the process of boarding the train, but the train starts leaving the station before all passengers have boarded. There is no conductor to alert the engineer to wait. So the train keeps going, passengers are left behind and these passengers now have to deal with how to get to their destination. This new analyzer acts like the conductor. When you incorporate this into your business process of closing the GL period, then it will alert you to wait when there are pending items. By waiting for subledgers to complete, many issues are avoided because subledgers are not left dangling with accounting entries you can no longer get all the way into GL. Benefits of the EBS Period Close Process Analyzer     Run from General Ledger responsibility, but checks all subledgers     Provides recommended actions and best practices     Runs as a standalone or Concurrent Request     Does not include transaction-specific data to ensure security Download today and incorporate this into your GL period close business process.

Fixed Assets

Fixed Asset Key Flexfield – An Overview

Deciding key flex field structure is an important decision in any organization while implementing Oracle application. When it comes to fixed assets, before defining the key flexfield structures proper planning needs to be done on the design as these flex field segments / structures cannot be changed at a later stage and the segments defined in these flex fields are applicable at instance level and all the books defined in that particular instance will be using the same asset key flex field structures. So these flex fields needs to be designed keeping in mind the current as well as future requirements of the business. In Fixed assets we have 3 key flex fields i.e 1. Asset Key Flexfield - Oracle Assets uses the asset key flex field to group your assets by non-financial information. You design your asset key flex field to record the information you want. Then you group your assets by asset key so you can find them without an asset number. You define your asset key flexfield structure to fit the specific needs of your organization. You choose the number of segments, the length of each segment, and the name and order of each segment in your asset key flexfield. You can define up to ten asset key segments. This key flexfield supports only one structure. 2. Asset Category Flex field-  Define the category flexfield to fit the way you group your assets. In Category flexfield structure, you must enable the major category qualifier to one segment and you can also define up to six subcategory segments. Even this flex field is a instance level setup and all the books defined in that instance will use the same category flex field structure / Segments. The maximum number of segments allowed for this flexfield is 7 and each segment can have 30 characters. 3. Location Flexfield - Assets use the location flexfield to group your assets by physical location. You design your location flexfield to record the location information you want. Then you can report on your assets by location.  This flex field structure needs to be defined carefully so that exact physical location of the asset can be tracked using this flexfield. If you do business internationally (or plan to do so in the future), you may want to track the country an asset is in. Other segments you may want include are state, city, and site. If you track asset location to more detail, such as for barcoding, you can also add segments for building and room number. You need to decide how many levels (segments) your location structure needs. Currently you can define up to six other location segments excluding the State segment.  For information on each of these flexfields, refer Oracle Assets user guide

Learn All About It! New Feature Rollback Timecards from Projects Accounting

[Contributing author: Helen Weatherhead, Oracle EBS HCM Support] Oracle E-Business Suite, Time and Labor New Release 12.2.8  New Feature, Rollback Timecards from Projects Accounting The ability to Rollback Timecards that have been transferred to Project Accounting is now available to users. This new feature was released in 2018, in Oracle Time and Labor Release 12.2. HRMS RUP12 Patch 26787667 If you have previously experienced problems with costing hours in EBS Projects due to incorrect processing or incorrect/corrupted data coming from Oracle Time and Labor (OTL) Timecards and had to log a service request to get the data rolled back so you can re-transfer it, then this enhancement will greatly benefit you. This new feature allows you to execute the Rollback in two ways. If you wish to selectively choose and rollback Timecards for one person or one organization you can use the Rollback page.   Alternatively, if you wish to rollback the entire group of Timecards you can do so using a concurrent request program. You can also view a list of previously submitted Rollback requests from the Recent Rollbacks Page. The page contains live links to allow you to access details of the Rollback (Request id) and the concurrent request log file output. Here is a screenshot of what the Recent Rollbacks Page looks like:   From the Recent Rollbacks page, you can choose to launch a new Rollback if you wish to use the selective method of rolling back. From here, you can choose one Timecard or a group of Timecards to be rolled back.   If you are confident in your selection criteria and do not wish to choose individual Timecards to be rolled back then you can go directly to the Concurrent Request / program method of rolling back. The parameters are the same as those on the Rollback Page without the Timecard selection.   A very useful feature of this functionality is that the Rollbacks can take place in two modes, thereby allowing you to view and validate the data before committing the changes. Validate Validate and Process For more information on this exciting new functionality, and others released in Oracle Time and Labor Release 12.2. HRMS RUP12 Patch 26787667, we recommend you review the following: EBS HCM ADVISOR WEBCAST held on July 10th, 2018 to Learn of the New Oracle Time and Labor Release 12.2.

Oracle Continuous Innovation on Oracle E - Business Suite 12.2

  Oracle has announced a “Continuous Innovation” release model for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, delivering ongoing applications and underlying technology stack updates without a major upgrade.  At the same time, we announced Premier Support for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 through at least 2030.   This means that Oracle E-Business Suite customers already running on 12.2 can continue to access new application functionality and separately uptake later versions of underlying technology for years to come, without the time and expense of a major release upgrade. With Continuous Innovation now available for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, customers can expect: Ongoing Applications Updates —ongoing updates to Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 applications code, analogous to the 12.2.x patch updates we have made available approximately annually. Updates will be cumulative and will combine bug fixes and new features into a consolidated, suite-wide patch set that can be easily applied with Online Patching. Ongoing Technology Stack Updates —ongoing updates to allow for the needed refresh of the Oracle Fusion Middleware platform technologies underlying Oracle E-Business Suite. These will allow customers to obtain new versions of the technology without upgrading their Oracle E-Business Suite applications code. In addition, the Oracle Premier Support policy described in "Oracle Applications Unlimited and Oracle Premier Support—An Unbeatable Combination" now applies to the 12.2 release. Per the policy, Oracle will not discontinue offering Oracle Premier Support on the Continuous Innovation releases prior to 2030 and, beginning in 2019, we are committed to annually review whether or not to extend the Premier Support offering for an additional year on such Continuous Innovation releases for on premises applications.   Please read the FULL announcement here:  Announcing Continuous Innovation on Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 (PDF) Review these additional resources Oracle Applications Unlimited and Oracle Premier Support—An Unbeatable Combination (PDF) oracle.com/applicationsunlimited With Continuous Innovation now available for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, Oracle E-Business Suite joins other Applications Unlimited product lines (PeopleSoft, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and Siebel) that also have pledged to provide Continuous Innovation and Premier Support through at least 2030 for their existing releases.   Other EBS Roadmap Announcements: ANNOUNCEMENT: Oracle E-Business Suite 10-Year Rolling Support and Continuous Innovation More NEWS, Regarding the Oracle E-Business Suite Release Roadmap Exciting Update to the Oracle E-Business Suite Release Roadmap

Analyzers: The Evolution of Oracle E-Business Suite Diagnostics

Analyzers: The Evolution of Oracle E-Business Suite Diagnostics   Oracle is continuously looking for ways to maximize the value of your product and service investments. Whether you are a technical or functional user, Oracle E-Business Suite provides resources to help you optimize your time and be more proactive. We are happy to offer Oracle E-Business Suite Support Analyzers as the primary diagnostic tool to help get more done with less effort and decrease your time to resolve issues. There are currently 81 Oracle E-Business Suite Support Analyzers available (and more under development) for the following product areas: Oracle E-Business Suite (core) Financials Manufacturing Human capital management Customer relationship management Oracle E-Business Suite Support Analyzers provide value beyond troubleshooting and should be used as part of your ongoing production maintenance program. Diagnostics are grouped together by functional areas, so that hundreds of checks may be run for a specific issue. This allows for the greatest opportunity to find an issue’s root cause and provide a proven solution. Authorized users (such as Applications Database Administrators, Systems Administrators, and end-users with appropriate permissions) can execute analyzers on demand, and administrators can also configure concurrent processes for even greater flexibility. After the diagnostics run, designated admins and users receive a summary of any findings in easy-to-read HTML reports that offer recommendations, solutions, and early warnings about items that should be reviewed or corrected. As Oracle E-Business Suite Support’s primary diagnostic tool, analyzers are updated with checks for the latest known issues as soon as they occur. Analyzers act in a read-only manner. They won’t make any data inserts, updates, or deletions within your environment at any time, helping ensure proactive, efficient and safe operation for your systems. The Oracle Support Analyzers framework has three major components: Analyzer Installation Each analyzer is installed via an SQL script and assigned to a concurrent process This does require a technical administrator with applications access Analyzer Output Any user with the appropriate privileges can run available analyzers and have results included in their concurrent process reports The output is provided in easy-to-read HTML reports Analyzer Bundler This is a tool that enables the System Administrator to install any number of analyzers (or all of them) at one time It also provides the capability to set up the analyzers for auto-update on a monthly basis If you are using Oracle Diagnostic Framework (ODF) for Oracle E-Business Suite, we encourage you to move to Oracle E-Business Suite Support Analyzers and gain the benefits of faster resolution and proactive issue identification. ODF, when released in 2005, provided application-specific troubleshooting tools geared toward technical resources managing and administrating the Oracle E-Business Suite system.
