Flexible accounting provides greater flexibility in recording accounting information associated with distribution transactions. Now a branch plant value can be based on a combination of fields. For example, a branch plant record can include information for a sold to address number (ex. 4242), an address number category code (ex. SOU), and an item category code (ex. ACC). This allows very specific accounting of who, where and what is being sold. In the past, the only way that this information could be passed to the general ledger was through the subledger field and only one part could be captured.

Flexible accounting can be used on the Manufacturing, Cost Accounting, and Distribution applications of EnterpriseOne. This paper will address Flexible Accounting for Distribution (Sales, Inventory, and Purchasing processes). The Sales system uses Flexible Accounting during the Sales Update (R42800). Purchasing uses Flexible Accounting during Purchase Receipts (P4312), Landed Cost (P43291) and Match Voucher to Open Receipts (P4314). 

Flex Accounting is not integrated with the Financials AAIs, F0012. The Invoice Master Business Function (B03B0011) and the Voucher Master Business Function (P0400047) do not contain processing options to activate flex accounting functionality. Flex accounting is not supported for the trade account stored in the Customer Ledger (F03B11) nor the trade account used by the post program for vouchers. The trade account is determined solely by looking at the AAI RC G/L Offset or PC G/L Offset. The A/R MBF and A/P MBF will not look at AAIs or rules determined by other system codes in an effort to derive the trade account used.  See enhancement document 2069095.1

This document details the setup that is required for Flexible Accounting to function correctly.
