Calendar Types
Period Types relate to how many
periods are associated with each
year. Only one period type can be
associated with each Ledger.

YEAR TYPE determines how the period name will default when used
Add the PERIODS PER to set up a calendar, though this default can be overridden. If FISCAL

Validating Calendars
When you navigate away from the calendar form, a message will prompt you if you want to validate the Current calendar or All calendars.
Select Current if that is the only calendar you made changes to, and All if you made changes to more than one. EBS will run a report called
Other Calendar Validation Report, which will valdiate that no periods or dates were missed (a common mistake is to skip February 29).
as once a period is used, it cannot easily be changed or deleted. Prior to the status on the period being OPEN or FUTURE, it can still be
deleted or changed. Setting up calendars is always a balancing actyou need to set them up far enough in the future to utilize all of the
standard functionality.

Special Calendars for Average Balance Calculations
Transaction Calendars are used in conjunction with Average Balances in EBS, they define the days of the week that are
business days, so the average balances can be calculated.

processing is enabled
by selecting the
Enable Average
Balances option on
Once average balance
processing is enabled,
General Ledger
automatically stores
the aggregate
balances which are
used to calculate
average and end-of-
day balances,
via on-line inquiry
and reports.

next Steps .

Transaction calendars and accounting calendars are completely independent of each other. For example, you might
have one accounting calendar, shared by your parent company and all its subsidiaries. However, each subsidiary
might use a separate transaction calendar to accommodate their different Holiday schedules.


EBS has two main features for foreign currencies: the ability to record transactions in currencies other than the Ledger
currency, and the ability to perform a re-measurement of the balances into foreign currencies. Both may require either
adding or enabling the additional currencies, as well as conversion rates. [ Later ]
