The Little Known Factors that could affect Recognizing Revenue

You may have business or legal requirements that dictate how you can account for the revenue associated to the invoice.  Perhaps you recognize the revenue in full once the invoice is paid, or for invoices associated with a service spread out over multiple months, you may need to recognize the revenue only when the service has been provided.

Scheduling when Revenue is accounted for, is all handled by Revenue Recognition feature.  Revenue Recognition is an engine that will created GL distributions for your invoices reflecting the revenue schedule you defined.

Revenue Recognition is run as a batch process either as a stand-alone or automatically when you invoke transfer of accounting to the General Ledger.  The process will pick up all invoices with rules that have not yet been processed.  For each of these invoices, it will review the Invoicing and Accounting rules associated and create the necessary GL distributions it creates is how invoices in Receivables get posted to the General Ledger.

When Revenue Recognition encounters errors while processing transactions, it will report these transactions as Unprocessed or Partially Processed.  Here are five things that could affect Revenue Recognition:

Receivables: Important system options to review for Autoinvoice

Receivables lets you define several options for your invoices and use of Autoinvoice.  You can specify whether to purge the interface tables that you use for Autoinvoice, the maximum number of bytes to use, whether SQL Trace is active for Autoinvoice, and the grouping rule to use for revenue and credit transactions you create through Autoinvoice.

The System Options form has four sub tabs: Accounting, Trans and Customers, Claims and Miscellaneous

Responsibility: Receivables Manager
Navigation: Setup > System > System Options

The tab with the Autoinvoice options is the Trans and Customers tab.

  • Since Autoinvoice processes bulk data through an open interface table, its is not necessary to retain the data in the interface table once the transactions have been generated in Receivables.  By checking Purge Interface Tables checkbox in the System Options form, you are allowing Autoinvoice to clean up after itself once it has completed processing.
  • Setting your Max Memory (in bytes) is also important for Autoinvoice, the recommended setup is 3MB (3145728 bytes).
  •  Log File Message Level is recommended at 0 (zero).  Setting the log file message level to 0 provides the least detailed debug message but still includes errors and warning messages.  After you have completed and tested Autoinvoice for the first time you should need only minimal messages in the log file.  You can change the log file message level to 3 or above only when you want to troubleshoot Autoinvoice.
  • Enter the grouping rule that was setup in Receivables > Setup > Transactions > Autoinvoice > Grouping Rules. Autoinvoice uses grouping rules to group invoices, credit memos and debit memos. Grouping rules contain various transaction attributes (columns in RA_INTERFACE_LINES_ALL table) that must be identical across several interface records if the intention was for it to create one transaction. 

Excellent Resources for Autoinvoice:
