Financial Reporting Using Excel? Get Some Hints!

Report Manager, as part of Oracle Applications E-Business Suite is a powerful tool allowing users to publish, store and customize reports results in order to meet complex business reporting requirements.

  • making use of many Excel formatting options - bold heading, colors, pictures, logos

Using Additional Currencies for Reporting Purposes in General Ledger

The need to report in additional currencies may occur at any time to satisfy legal, statutory or management supplementary reporting requirements. This is also a good option to be considered if you operate in countries with highly inflationary economies.

In General Ledger this can be accomplished using

  • Reporting Currencies - where the need is to simply maintain transactions in multiple currencies
  • Secondary Ledgers - where the main purpose is to represent transactions in a different accounting method, calendar, currency, chart of accounts

You may configure any of these setup alternatives to comply with your Generally Accepted Accounting Principles circumstances.
