R12: Important Enhancement: ON-THE-FLY SLA Upgrade of Historical SLA Distributions--BATCH MODE!

Previous Announcement

In September of 2014 we announced the release of an important new enhancement in Oracle Payables that would allow you to transparently upgrade upstream 11i transactions from periods which had not been upgraded for Subledger Accounting (SLA), and which would negatively affect the accounting of dependent downstream transactions--without needing to apply the SLA Hot Patch or run the SLA: Upgrade Historical Subledger Transaction Accounting program.

The details and important benefits of that critical release and how it works can be found in detail in this blog post from back in Nov-14.

The only limitation to the functionality released back then was that it was only available when accounting transactions in "Online Mode". Now we are happy to announce that the second phase of this enhancement is also available.

Release of Phase 2

On 06-Feb-2015, the "Batch Mode" version of this enhancement was released via patch 20427746.  This patch introduces an entirely new concurrent process: "Payables Upgrade SLA Distributions for Historical Referenced Transactions". This process should be run in tandem with the "Create Accounting" program. It can be run independently prior to running "Create Accounting", or they can be run together as a request set.

Payables Upgrade SLA Distributions for Historical Referenced Transactions Concurrent Program

The parameters of the new program are similar to those used by the "Create Accounting" process to identify unaccounted events to process.

  •  Ledger
  •  Process Category
  •  Start Date
  •  End Date
  •  Batch Size
When run, the new program will identify all of the historical upstream transactions which would affect your unaccounted events, and upgrade them on the fly as required to prevent any errors when the "Create Accounting" program subsequently runs.

The original note describing the online version of the enhancement "R12: Important Enhancement ON-THE-FLY Upgrade of Historical SLA Distributions" (Doc ID 1938253.1) has been updated to provide additional information about the batch mode version of this enhancement.

If you have any questions or comments on this new functionality please post in the dedicated Payables Community thread

Cycle Count No Data Found? Find Your Data!

It's a beautiful day. Not a cloud in the sky. It's warm and sunny and everything's right with the world. You leisurely decide to run your Cycle Count Listing Report and oddly enough, the sky starts to darken. Storm clouds gather. The temperature drops. Winds start to blow and...NO DATA FOUND! Nooooo...not the dreaded 'No data Found!' You have an inventory item you know has a scheduled date for today. How can there be no cycle count entry! You feel like the porch light is on but no one is home. Is there a logfile, report, or sql query that can be used to resolve this issue? You wonder where can you find items scheduled for today? How many times was this tested to see if the item should be counted? Are the logfiles annotated? The Inventory Blog Team answers your questions with a yes, Yes, and again, YES! We have the MOS note for you, Investigating Cycle Counting Scheduling Issues (Doc ID 1912738.1). Note 1912738.1 provides information like the constraints placed on creating cycle count entries.



Use the video demonstrations, presentations, and sql scripts in troubleshooting Note 1912738.1, to once again turn those grey skies blue, in your cycle counting day!

Are you Running the Approval Analyzer and Getting an Error?

Now that the Approvals Analyzer (Doc ID 1525670.1) is being requested on many Procurement Approval Service Requests and we have a new version, some client have reported that they are seeing errors like one of the following:

ORACLE error 6550 in FDPSTP

Cause: FDPSTP failed due to ORA-06550:
line 1,

column 7:
PLS-00201: identifier 'PO_APPRVL_ANALYZER_PKG.MAIN_CP'
must be declared
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored
ERROR at line 27:
ORA-06550: line 27, column 3:
PLS-00201: identifier 'PO_APPRVL_ANALYZER
_PKG.MAIN_SINGLE' must be declared
ORA-06550: line 27, column 3:
PL/SQL: Statement ignore
FDPSTP failed due to ORA-06550: line 1,
column 7:
PLS-00306: wrong number or types of arguments in
call to 'MAIN_CP'
ORA-06550: line 1, column 7:
PL/SQL: Statement ignored


The errors above simply mean that the concurrent program definition and Analyzer code are not in sync.

To resolve this error merely download and install the current version po_approval_analyzer.sql from the 'Download Now' button in .(Doc ID 1525670.1). Load the latest version of the concurrent program definition using podiagaa.ldt, then rerun the concurrent program.  Issue resolved!

And while we are talking about the Approval Analyzer remember to provide the correct document type when running it. Take a careful look at the parameters that return in the list of values after choosing the Single Mode.  It must match your document!

If you forget to choose the correct Document Type you will find errors in the output like the following:
