Error In Calendar Period Name - Options To Resolve (Doc ID 2398814.1)

Last updated on MAY 16, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion General Ledger Cloud Service - Version 11.12.1.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Qn1:The period names in the calendar from Apr-18 have been setup incorrectly. We need to understand what our options are to resolve this issue.
 
Qn2:Can I just summarise what I think is your advice:

1) Misnamed Accounting Period Names -
There is no adjustment that can be made to the Accounting Calendar period names for open or future enterable periods.
Therefore our only options for our misnamed periods are:
a) To live with the misnamed periods.
b) Set up a new Set of Books and migrate all the data across
Is this correct?

2) Accounting Periods named differently in Accounting Calendar to Fixed Assets calendar -
The Accounting periods are named differently in different modules, i.e. 01 April 2018 to 30 April 2018 is named as Apr-19 in the Accounting Calendar but as Apr-18 in the Fixed Asset calendar.
Am I correct that this should have no impact in transfer of information between modules?


3) Fiscal Year named differently in Accounting Calendar from Fixed Assets calendar -
The Fiscal Year 01 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 is named as 2019 in the Accounting Calendar but as 2018 in the Fixed Asset calendar.
Am I correct that this should have no impact in transfer of information between modules?
