Period status in General Ledger

Open: In the Open status you can enter and post Journals. Closed: In this status Journal entry and posting not allowed until accounting period is reopened. Reporting and inquiry allowed. Permanently Closed: In this status Journal entry and posting not allowed. You cannot change this period status. Reporting and inquiry allowed. You can change the status. Never Opened: Journal entry and posting are not allowed. General Ledger assigns this status to any period preceding the first period ever opened in your calendar, or to any period that has been defined, but is not yet future-enterable. You cannot change this period status. Future-Entry: Journal entry is allowed, but posting is not. Your period is not yet open, but falls within the range of future-enterable periods you designated in the Set of Books window. You cannot change this period status without using the concurrent process to open the period.

Recurring Journals
Define recurring journal formulas for transactions that you repeat every accounting period, such as accruals, depreciation charges, and allocations. You can use recurring journals to create three types of journal entries: Skeleton Journal Entries: Skeleton journals have varying amounts in each period. You define a recurring journal entry with out amounts, and then enter the appropriate amounts each accounting period. There are no formulas to enter, only account combinations. For example, you can record temporary labor expenses in the same account combination every month with varying amount due to fluctuations in hours.. Standard Recurring Journal Entries: Standard recurring journal entries use the same accounts and amounts each period. For Example: Record monthly lease expenses with constant amounts charged to the same account. Recurring Journal Formula Entries: Formula entries use formulas to calculate journal amounts that vary from period to period. For example, calculate commotion to sales representative based on the sales of the month.

Types Of Purchase Orders

key flexfield

key flexfield is a field made up of segments, where each segment has both a value and a meaning. You can think of a key flexfield as an intelligent field that your business can use to store information represented as codes. Most organizations use codes made up of meaningful segments to identify general ledger accounts, part numbers, and other business entities. Each segment of the code can represent a characteristic of the entity. For example, consider an account number for a bank. A complete bank number may consists of various segments like the country code, area code, city code, branch code, account type, account number etc

Multiple Reporting Currencies

The Multiple Reporting Currencies (MRC) is the set of unique feature embedded in Oracle applications, which allows you to report on and maintain accounting at the transaction level in more than one functional currency. MRC is based on the Multi-Org Architecture, and is a significant aspect of a globalization strategy. The primary functional currency is the currency you use to record transactions and maintain your accounting data within the Oracle E-Business Suite. In the primary set of books, the functional currency is always the primary functional currency. Usually, the primary functional currency is the currency in which you perform most of your business transactions, and the one you use for legal reporting. A reporting set of books is a financial reporting entity associated with a primary set of books. While the reporting set of books has the same chart of accounts and accounting calendar as the primary set of books, its use of a different functional currency (reporting functional currency) allows you to report in a different functional currency than that of your primary set of books. You must define a separate set of books for each of your reporting functional currencies. By using MRC concept we can maintain up to Eight Reporting Set Of Books

Journal source and categories

Use Of Automatic Offset Method In Payable Options

If you enter an invoice for expenses or asset purchases for more than one balancing segment, you might want to use automatic offset method to keep your payables transaction accounting entries balanced. If we enable balancing as a automatic offset, payable builds the offset GL account by taking the balancing segment value from the invoice distribution and overlaying it on to the appropriate GL account, i.e liability account from the supplier site. If we enable account as automatic offset, it takes the opposite approach with one segment being retained from the default GL account and all other segments being retained from the invoice distribution
