AR: News Collection

Below is a listing of our recent blog postings on topics in the Accounts Receivables (AR) product area:

AR: Why Can't I Inactivate Parties in Accounts Receivable?

Are you confused by Parties versus Customers in Receivables?  Are you wondering how to  inactivate a customer/party using AR forms and screens? 

Back in Release 11.5 the customer was maintained through the Customer Standard form, which was owned by Accounts Receivables.  As the data model became more complex,  the Trading Community Architecture (TCA) product and data model was created.   All applications within the E-Business suite that require interaction with a customer integrate with TCA.  Customer information is no longer stored in the individual applications but rather in a central repository/registry maintained within TCA.

For an insight into the terminology of TCA, check out the following blog entry 

Understanding the Customer Form in Release 12 from an AR Perspective!!

From a current AR perspective, when you create a new customer, you are actually creating a Customer Account.  However, because the data is now kept within TCA, the structure of data must adhere to the rules defined within TCA.  One of these rules is, You can define a Party without creating Customer Accounts for it, but a Customer Account always has to be tied to one and only one Party. In compliance with this rule, when you create a Customer Account in AR, the code automatically takes care of creating the Party associated to the Customer Account for you.

At the AR level, you will only transact at the Customer Account level and never the Party level.  This is why in the Customer form owned by AR, you will not have access to manipulate the status of the Party.  To change the status of a Party you would have to access the data via applications such as: Telesales or Customers Online.  You will still be able to inactivate the customer status in the Create Customer screen, but the related party will still be active until you also change this in these applications.

 In order to understand the specifics of these relationships, we would like to advise you of the following MOS documents which will provide you with specific information and troubleshooting tips

If you have applied Projects patch R12.PJ_PF.B.delta.5, you may be experiencing the following errors when transferring to Receivables:

The distributions for this transaction are in the functional currency, but the entered amount does not equal the accounted amount. Please recalculate the accounted amount for this transaction and resubmit AutoInvoice.

Projects Development have released Patch 16944382 to resolve these issues. For full details, see DocID 1562223.1.

Resolving Autoinvoice Date Issues

We get lots of questions about Autoinvoice and in this blog entry we'd like to offer some advice and help to try and take some of the mystery out of Autoinvoice Dates. 

There are just so many dates and so many ways to derive all the dates!  Receivables Transactions have General Ledger (GL) Date, Transaction Date, Ship Date, Sales Order Date, and Rule Start dates to name a few.  There are also several ways to get your dates, with Autoinvoice you can enter your GL Date and Transaction Date in the columns of RA_INTERFACE_LINES_ALL table or you can allow the AutoInvoice process to derive the dates.

If the dates are not provided in the interface tables they will be derived based on your setups.  Date Derivation of the General Ledger date and Transaction date during the process of AutoInvoice depends on the following date columns in the RA_INTERFACE_LINES_ALL table:

  • GL_DATE
  • TRX_DATE
  • SHIP_DATE_ACTUAL
  • SALES_ORDER_DATE
  • RULE_START_DATE

AutoInvoice determines the General Ledger date for invoices using the following criteria:

  • Does a GL date exist for this invoice in the interface table?
  • Does the invoice use rules?
  • What is the setting of the Derive Date option for this Transaction Batch Source (Yes or No)?   (Receivables Responsibility > Setup > Transaction > Sources)
  • What is the setting of the GL Date in a Closed Period option for this Transaction Batch Source (Adjust or Reject)?  (Receivables Responsibility > Setup > Transaction > Sources)

If you elected to derive the rule start date, AutoInvoice first uses the ship date in the interface table. If the ship date does not exist, AutoInvoice uses the sales order date. If the sales order date does not exist, AutoInvoice uses the date you entered in the Run AutoInvoice window.  The following diagram illustrates this process.

For more examples and diagrams see the 'Determining Dates' section of our  Oracle Receivables User Guide.
