DEALINC Cannot Handle Processing Multiple Weeks in a Single Run for Rebate Deals
Last updated on JULY 11, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 13.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
If the month close is delayed by a week, then DEALINC has to calculate income for both the EOM date and for the following week. For rebate deals, this produces incorrect results, because the income for the prior week must be known in order to correctly calculate the income for the following week.
Steps to Recreate:
1. Create a Bill Back Rebate deal with:
Deal Timing = Promotional
Threshold Limit Type = Amount
Threshold Value Type = Percentage
Deal Application Timing = Sales
Deal Reporting Level = Weekly
2. Run batches FCTHREADEXEC and FCEXEC.
3. Upload sales. Run SALSTAGE.
4. Run PREPOST dealact_sales, DEALACT and DEALINC.
