AR: Are you still on Release 12.0? Recommendations For A Smooth Month End Close In Oracle Receivables

Oracle Receivables highly recommends the following if you are running R12.0 application version.

1.  Upgrade to 12.0.6 if you are not on 12.0.6.

2.  Apply the latest consolidated patch for Receivables: Patch 12702898:R12.AR.A

3.  Run Import/Validate AAD following the following notes:

4.  Use the Subledger Period Close Exception Report to view all accounting events and journal entries that fail period close validation. This report helps in resolving exceptions quickly so that exceptions are not left to slow down the period-end close. It is automatically submitted by General Ledger when closing a GL period if there are unprocessed accounting events or non-transferred journal entries.
You can also generate the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report through a concurrent request as follows:

Receivables Responsibility:
Nav: Control -> Requests -> Run
Execute the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report
