AR: News Collection

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


AR: Are you still on Release 12.0? Recommendations For A Smooth Month End Close In Oracle Receivables

Oracle Receivables highly recommends the following if you are running R12.0 application version.

1.  Upgrade to 12.0.6 if you are not on 12.0.6.

2.  Apply the latest consolidated patch for Receivables: Patch 12702898:R12.AR.A

3.  Run Import/Validate AAD following the following notes:

4.  Use the Subledger Period Close Exception Report to view all accounting events and journal entries that fail period close validation. This report helps in resolving exceptions quickly so that exceptions are not left to slow down the period-end close. It is automatically submitted by General Ledger when closing a GL period if there are unprocessed accounting events or non-transferred journal entries.
You can also generate the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report through a concurrent request as follows:

Receivables Responsibility:
Nav: Control -> Requests -> Run
Execute the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report

For more information on this report see Doc ID 793598.1: How to Use the Subledger Period Close Exceptions Report for Period Close Activity?

5.  Additional Patches on top of RUP patch listed below, these are current versions as of August 20, 2013.

AR: Learn The Impact Of System Options Checkbox "Create Detailed Distributions"

The Create Detailed Distributions check box in the Receivables system options form was created as part of the "Merge Distributions Enhancement" (Bug: 7559194: LINE LEVEL DISTRIBUTIONS NOT NEEDED FOR HEADER LEVEL CASH APPLICATION/ADJUSTMENT).  Distributions were getting created at the level of granularity of an invoice line.  This would result in a large number of distributions/meta data being passed to the Sub ledger Accounting Module.


When the checkbox is checked, Receivables will create detailed invoice line level distributions.  These detailed distributions allow the system to create line level applications for receipts and adjustments.

You should CHECK this checkbox if any of the conditions below are true:

1. If the Primary or Secondary ledgers associated with the operating unit is using one of the following subledger accounting representations:

  • The Multifund Receivable accounting representation, where receivable accounting lines for an invoice are created at the level of invoice line.
    Note: Release 12 seeds Subledger accounting methods: Multi-Fund Accrual - Account Method and Multi-Fund Accrual - Balancing Method
  • The Cash Basis accounting representation, where accounting is created only at the time of receipt of cash.
    Note: Release 12 seeds Subledger accounting methods: Encumbrance Cash and Standard Cash

2. If you want to apply receipts or adjustments to invoice lines using Line level Cash Application feature or Line Level Adjustment feature.

3. If you want to derive account code fully or partially from the invoice lines when accounting for adjustments or receipt applications.

Keep in mind that checking this box could cause performance issues.  There will be a larger volume of distribution records, which could potentially cause performance issues during the Submit Accounting or Create Accounting process for Receipt Applications.  There are two patches that will aid in performance issues (Patch 16198666 and Patch 16060007) See Doc ID 1534178.1 and Doc ID 1481222.1 for more details in preventing any performance related issues.

When the checkbox is UNCHECKED, Oracle Receivables will create summarized distributions. The receivable distributions for adjustments and applications are not maintained at the invoice line level, instead a summarized receivable distribution is created at the invoice header level. Adjustments and receipt applications are not pro-rated across the invoice lines. This is same way the receivable distributions are created in Release 11i.

Following is the impact of having the checkbox UNCHECKED:

  • When you create Batch Sources (Navigation: Setup > Transactions > Sources), in the Batch Source tab, the checkbox Generate Line Level Balances will be disabled.
  • When you create Receipt Applications (Navigation: Receipt > Receipts) in the Applications form, the Apply in Detail button will be disabled.
  • When you create Adjustments against transactions (Navigation: Transactions > Transactions, Toolbar Menu Actions > Adjust) in the Account, IDs tab, the Line column will be disabled.
  • When using the Receipt or Adjustment APIs, you cannot create line level applications.


For an explanation on the validation that takes place when checking and unchecking the box see Doc ID 1081657.1.
