Overview Understanding AAIs

AAIs are rules that define the relationships between your day-to-day accounting functions and your chart of accounts. In the General Accounting system, AAIs determine how to distribute general ledger entries that the system generates. The AAIs in the EnterpriseOne General Accounting system do the following:

The name of an automatic accounting instructions (AAI) item, for example, GLG is hard coded. Each AAI is associated with a specific general ledger account that consists of a business unit, an object, and optionally, a subsidiary and is mapped to your chart of accounts. Information about AAI items is setup by P0012 application and is stored in the Automatic Accounting Instructions Master table (F0012).

Note: Depending on the operating system, (example iSeries) ending subsidiary code will be obj.ZZZZZZZZ. 


This document is intended for Finance Functional users who will be involved in setting up of Automatic Accounting Instructions in the General Accounting system.
