New R12 Consolidated Patch for R12 1099 Reporting Available!

Development have just released a new consolidated patch for R12 customers for easier 1099 patching

Patch 19802493 was originally released as the R12 2014 changes patch but it did not contain all the files needed to ensure the latest code for all aspects of 1099 reporting.

Customers new to 1099 reporting would have had to apply multiple R12 patches to update all the necessary files for problem free reporting.  As a result a consolidation patch was requested for simplicity to ensure customers only needed to apply one patch.

If you have already applied 19802493 this is still valid as it provides the changes for this year.  However, if you are new to 1099s, didn't apply last years patches or are having issues with your reporting then you should ensure to apply the consolidation patch detailed below.

What do you need to do?

Apply the following patch specific to your release:

11i: Apply Patch 19802504 - 1099 REPORTING CHANGES FOR YEAR 2014

12.0.x: Apply Patch 20432513:R12.AP.A - 1099 CONSOLIDATION FOR THE YEAR 2014 for R12

12.1.x: Apply Patch 20432513:R12.AP.B - 1099 CONSOLIDATION FOR THE YEAR 2014 for R12

12.2.x: Apply Patch 20432513:R12.AP.C - 1099 CONSOLIDATION FOR THE YEAR 2014 for R12

Oracle Payables Plans for 2014 1099 Reporting (Doc ID 209913.1) has been updated with the new patch details.
