Need Assistance With A Create Mass Additions Issue?

We have created a new Troubleshooting Assistant for Oracle Fixed Assets for the Create Mass Additions process.  This process (also known by its short name in Assets as FAMACR and in Payables as APMACR) is used to bring addition and adjustment lines from Accounts Payable into Fixed Assets via the mass additions interface.  There have been a number of changes to the process and enhancements made in recent releases.

TroubResolveleshooting Assistants are resources created to help you find a resolution to an issue by guiding you from the problem, through the possible scenarios, and to the proposed solution.  These troubleshooting assistant types of resources were formerly called Search Helpers.  Called by either name, they are designed to provide a path through various topics related to a process and, based on the selections you make, provide suggested solutions. 

The troubleshooting assistant for create mass additions includes solutions for these issues, and more: 

  • Addition lines that were not transferred from Payables to Assets
  • Addition lines that were transferred into Assets but should not have been 
  • Merging of addition lines 
  • Transferring freight, tax or miscellaneous lines
  • ORA-30926 errors
  • Performance issues

You can access this troubleshooting assistant in Troubleshooting Assistant: Create Mass Additions From Payables (AP) to Fixed Assets (FA) (Doc ID 1609542.2)

Hi

We are looking for a solution to automate the mass additions process in our company. We have approximately 200+ new assets each month which require capitalisation, and it takes our Capital accountant about 2.5 days a month to go through each of these. Whilst there are a number of exceptions, there are about 70-80% of new assets which only need to be assigned from "New" to "POST" as part of the mass additions process.

Is there any solution which is out there that would allow for the automation of this process (i.e. a loader which would allow for this).

thanks

Hi, Áine:
There is not a loader with the application. However, you could use the "Post All" feature in the application. When you have queried up the mass additions that you want to move from NEW to POST, navigate in the Mass Additions Summary screen to Tools > Post All. This will run a mass process for all the mass additions in the screen to change them from NEW to POST. The same verifications are performed (i.e., the addition lines have to be complete and ready for posting before they are placed in the POST queue).
