The Master GDF Diagnostic has been around for a while and is used to detect and provide solutions for common data integrity issues in Oracle Payables. It is updated regularly as new data corruption patterns are discovered so it’s always important to remember to check the version you have is the latest, each time you run it. In fact just a few days ago the diagnostic was updated to include EBTax common corruption signatures so you can now scan your data for Invoices, Accounting, Payments, Suppliers and now EBTax corruption!
The current version of ap_gdf_detect_pkg.sql is 120.80 so check you have it downloaded! You can even install it as a concurrent program and schedule it periodically!
There’s a reason this note is the #1 Payables document used by support and customers to resolve SR’s – because it works - and it helps you resolve issues before you even know you have them. Don’t delay - give it a try today and see what issues you can avoid by applying the datafix and code fix patches it suggests.
