How To Set Up Oracle iExpenses

104 Comments

Here is a summary of steps to set up Oracle Internet Expenses. iExpenses is basically an extension Oracle Payables. Employee and Contingent Worker expense reports become supplier invoices and get paid from Payables. You will need following responsibilties to set up Internet Expenses: Payables Manager, Internet Expenses Setup and Administration, System Administration, Application Developer, and AX Developer. If you are also planning on charging expense reports to projects, you will also need Project Billing Super User and General Ledger Super User responsibilities. You will also need access to Oracle Workflow Builder to customize the Expenses workflow and Project Expense Reports Account Generator.

Oracle Internet Expenses Setup Steps:

Step 1: PA: Enable Project Expenditure Types for Expense Report Entry. Navigation: Project Billing Super User: Setup > Expenditures > Expenditure Types. Enable expenditure types to be used on project-related expense reports. Enable selected expenditure types with an Expenditure Type Class ‘Expense Reports’.

Step 2: AP: Define Expense Report Templates Navigation: Payables Manager: Setup > Invoice > Expense Report Template. You must define at least one expense report template with the Enable for Internet Expenses Users check box selected. Only expense report templates with this option enabled can be used in Internet Expenses. Use the Oracle Payables Expense Report Templates window to define your expense report templates.

Step 3: AP: Define Financials Options > Accounting Navigation: Payables Manager: Setup > Options > Financials.

Marian,
Nice work.
Right now i am supporting iExp.
The problem is when the notification about the approval gets timed out due to the inaction of
approver and escalate to next level then if the next level manager tries to reassign it system is
throwing error.
When the auditor rejects one expense report and employee resubmit it again then when
approver tries to reassign it to his HOD its giving an error.
Waiting for your response.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Marian,
Great job done.
One thing I need to ask there is there any table where the Auditing information of the expense
report is being stored ? Our client requirement is to provide the audited date on a report. We
have taken the last_update_date from ap_expense_headers_all but that can be changed even after
the expense reports being imported to payables if auditor do some modification on the report.
So it’s not full proof. If you can give us the information where the first date when the expense
report was audited can be fount then it would be of great help for us.

Hi Marian,
We have a client requirement where the sales person needs to claim their conveyances on daily
basis for a month as a whole. The mileage rate is 2.5 but they also want to deduct initial 25 KMs
per day trip. I tried it with setup based on distance threshold (per trip) (25-0 , >25-2.5). But when
we calculate the mileage rate system take the full expense report as a single trip and deduct only
initial 25 KM from expense total irrespective of the entries for number of days. The other setup I
tried was to do it period wise which is working fine but I need to define periods for a single day in
the i-Expense policy schedule setup. And defining periods of single day is tedious job. Other thing
is how many periods we should define for that single policy that is also a constraint.
If you have any work around please help me. Waiting for your response.

Angela,
The attachment feature is pretty basic. You can add attachments to expense reports at the header
level or line level. Few drawbacks:
- You can only add attachments until you submit the report.
- No way to seamlessly scan and upload the receipts
- Managers or auditors can only view attachments in a single report, there is no way to “manage”
(print, reject, comment on etc.) multiple attachments from a consolidated view.
And as for performance, I would also be careful there about storing pictures (of receipts) and
other large documents. We are talking about HTML pages running on an application server, and
in my experience, they tend to get slow even out of the box… But you’d need to ask for someone
else’s expert opinion.
I’d hope Oracle product directors would join in and provide some explanation about the
intended functionality…

Great document and a very informative discussion.
I have a basic question about expense template.
How an employee select an expense template while entering expense reports in iexpenses?
I know we define templates in AP and we enable the check box to make it available for iexp users
but when we have multiple templates and for different employees like manager employee
Thanks in Advance for your help on this

Hi, this is a great document, but I have a question which relates to airline enhanced data in Visa’s
VCF4.0 file (record types 14 and 15) and car rental information (record type 2)and there doesnt
appear to be any coverage. How can iExpenses display the enhanced data received to the
employees in their expense reports? It loads OK and it can be seen in reports but the employees
cant see it!
Thank you

We implemented iExpense a bit more than a year ago. Overwhelming complaint from users is
system is slow – we have spent $$ on upgrading hardware speeds, but still have problem.
We have credit card feed implemented, and a particular problem is entering project/task
information in the credit card transactions screen – screen requires entering this information
manually for each entry, and saves the values to the server for each entry and line (each card
transaction must be assigned to and project and task number, so there are two entries per line).
Each time iExpense accepts an entry, it freezes for up to 10 seconds – doesn’t sound like much,
but it adds up and is causing a lot of user frustraton.
Does eExpense provide a means of batch loading this information? I’m thinking of something that
would dump card transactions to a local screen (HTML or Excel), allow users to enter project/task
numbers, categorize expenses, etc., then upload the whole set of transactions back into Oracle.
Many thanks for any suggestions.

Hi
Using Oracle EBS12 to enter an expense claim the Default Expense Account needs to be set on
the Assigment Purchace Order Tab. I was wondering if there was a way to set up a Global Default
Expense Account that would apply to any assignments with no Default Expense Account set.
Thanks

Hi All,
Is their any way can we make the costcenter LOV option to be read only instead of selecting it
while choosing only from iexpense responsibility.
I mean i want to personalize as read only one segment value i.e. costcenter column only.
Regards,
VJ

HowTo Set Up Oracle iExpenses | The Feature

Hi All,

Business Scenario :

Expense reports for credit card transactions are created in iexpenses responsiblity. During this process the accounting code combination which is generated is as per the auto-accounting setups as done. For one of the expense report this code combination has been disabled in GL as a result the expense report is hanging in SYSADMIN.

This notification in SYSADMIN has a column by the name “Reason for error” storing information about the reason for the error.

There are various transaction which are of these type in the applications for identifying which a custom report is being created. In this report we want to captured a column of the name “Reason for Error” for which we need to know the table and column where this information is being stored in backend so that the same can be mapped during preparation of custom reprt.

This information inspite of lot of analysis we are not able to find and need help in this regards.

Please suggest us a breakthrough. Reply
