Payables Master Generic Datafix (MGD) Now Includes Even More Data Integrity Checks For EBTax!!

Guest Author

The Payables MGD is a vital diagnostic that all R12/12.1 customers need to run regularly to
check the data integrity of their Payables system. This script does not make any changes to your
system, so it’s risk free and it produces a HTML formatted output showing which
data corruption issues have been detected and provides the Doc ID’s that will
be needed to fix them.

This MGD diagnostic (version 120.92 and
above) is even better than it used to be as it now checks for 11 new EBTax corruption
signatures that Support was seeing on a consistent basis. These lengthy Service Requests could have
been avoided with one run of the MGD which tells you right away if you have
data corruption. It’s the first thing our Payables support engineers will have you run
when you log an SR so why not be one step ahead?

The new EBTax signatures
that were included in this latest update to the MGD are pulled from the
following common solutions documents:

R12 E-Business Tax/Payables
Data-Fixes: Cause and action to handle ZX_LINES_SUMMARY_U1 issue Doc ID 1152123.1

EB-Tax Data Corruption Issues & Recommended Solutions Doc ID 1316316.1

The
specific issues that are now screened are detailed below:

1.
TAXABLE_BASIS_FORMULA and MANUALLY_ENTERED_FLAG mismatch
2. ESTABLISHMENT_ID mismatch
3. TRX_NUMBER mismatch
4. TAX_RATE mismatch
5. Currency Conversion related columns
mismatch in Migrated Invoices
6. HISTORICAL_FLAG and RECORD_TYPE_CODE
mismatch
7. ADJUSTED_DOC_TRX_LEVEL_TYPE is NULL
or APPLIED_FROM_TRX_LEVEL_TYPE is NULL
8. Missing Reversal Tax Distributions
For Tax Distributions
9. Tax Lines for discarded or cancelled
Transaction Lines are not marked as cancelled

10. Error AP_ERR_TAX_DIST_SYNC

11. AP_UNFROZEN_DIST_EXIST/Unfrozen Tax Distributions exist for this invoice

Get Proactive – Check your system for
these common EBTax issues and fix the data before it causes a problem.
