Information in this document applies to any platform.


The purpose of this document is to help in understanding the changes done to seeded accounting objects listed in the attachment -SQLAPXLAAAD_Changes..xls.

SLAM - Subledger Accounting Method
AAD - Application Accounting Definition
JLD - Journal Line Definition
JLT - Journal Line Type
JED - Journal Entry Description
ADR - Account Derivation Rule


There are two types of custom AAD users:

1. Users who customize AAD(s) to use custom accounting objects, such as custom JLD, custom JLT etc.

2. Users who customize AAD(s) only to be able to use customized Journal Entry Descriptions (JED), and who thereby leave accounting objects such as JLD’s and JLT’s unchanged.

This document is intended for users of the former type (i.e. users of customize AAD(s) who use custom JLD’s, etc.).

SQLAPXLAAAD_Changes.xls - attached to this document lists the changes done to the seeded accounting objects from Oracle. The changes have been categorized by "Application Accounting Definition" to facilitate users in determining the applicability and relevance of a specific fix to a setup. Every change is marked by a bug number.

Important Note: To maintain setup integrity either ALL under a bug number should be implemented or NONE at all.

Please read this document carefully before using the SQLAPXLAAAD_Changes.xls to make changes to custom accounting setups.
