Questions and Answers
 Questions
 Q1: When accrual is checked, why does nothing appear to occur, such as a credit memo?
 Q2: What is the base table(s) for the Redemption Accruals screen for OE_ACCRUALS_V?
Q3: Why is the unit selling price not changed when the accrue flag is checked?
 Q4: Where might one find additional information on acrruals?
 
 Answers
 Answer1:

The application is functioning as intended.
If you check the sales order / sales order line used for testing when accrual was checked, doing Actions > View Adjustments should show that this
accrual modifier was applied. While on the view adjustments form one can use folder technology (top of form click on Folder) to hide a field that is not needed
so that you may then do Folder > Show Field and select Accrual Flag. This can then be used to verify accrual is checked for this modifier that was applied.

You can then mark accrued price adjustments as redeemed and record redemption transaction information in the Accrual Redemption form.
Presently the accruals redemption screen is for manual redemption. That means the redemption transaction needs to be created into the redemption
system (may be payables) and needs to updated manually.  There is no integration with account payables and account receivables at this moment.

When you go to the accrual redemption form, the accrual comes up on the screen for redemption however you can not proceed past this point.
After selecting Redeem, the user has no connection nor integration to Accounts Payable or Accounts Receivable.
Enhancement Request (ER) <Bug 1731155> - OM ACCRUAL REDEMPTION - INTEGRATION WITH RECEIVABLES & PAYABLES
is currently logged with Oracle Development to request the following functionality occurs.
  Receivables Credit
  Payables Transaction
Also, there needs to be a connection field to the order number on this form as well.

Replications Details for ER
-----------------------------------------
Responsibility: Oracle Pricing Manager
Navigate to: Modifiers, Accrual Redemption
View Find All
Check Redeemed Check Box
TAB Out to next field
Transaction Reference: = XXXXX
Payment System: = XXXXX (There is no integration link. We need a process where the transaction is created in AR or AP and the transaction number populates in a field on this form.)
 Answer2:

OE_ACCRUALS_V is a supplementary view used to simplify the forms coding.
 Answer3:

When the accrue flag is UNchecked, the modifier is a discount modifier and not an accrual modifier.
Therefore the unit selling price is adjusted by the discount modifier.

However, if you opt to enable (check) the accrue flag, the modifier becomes an accrual modifier.
An accrual modifier does not impact the unit selling price, it just accrues.
For example, a customer accrues ten airline frequent flyer credits for each item they purchase.
At a later date the airline frequent flyer credits can be redeemed.
Accruals:
■ Do not affect the selling price of an order line
■ Do not appear as chargeable items on invoices
■ Create an adjustment record in the database (so that you can use Actions > View Adjustments to see that the accrual modifier is applied and later use the accrual redemption form if desired).
