Do you have Reconciliation Problems in Procurement between the Subledger and GL?

We are happy to announce the New Accrual Reconciliation Diagnostic & Troubleshooting Guide provided in Doc ID 1478292.1.  The Accrual Diagnostics script is designed to run when there is a reconciliation issue between subledger and GL and provides a user friendly report .  It was created to allow customers to run a single script to retrieve all data from various tables instead of having to run individual scripts. 

Doc ID 1478292.1 guides you through downloading and running the script, includes a full sample output in the attachments and gives steps for troubleshooting based on the report output.

Doc 1478292.1

We welcome your feedback for improvement of the Diagnostic. After visiting the note, click on the +/- icon in the note (shown in the sceenshot above) and provide us with your valuable comments!
