Last updated on DECEMBER 08, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When applying an unpaid Bills Receivable to a new Bills Receivable, the accounting for the new bills receivable is not crediting the unpaid BR account of the BR applied.

Steps to Reproduce:
Responsibility: AR Receivables Manager
Navigation:  Bills Receivable > Transactions

  1. Create BR 1
  2. Apply to an open invoice and Complete BR
  3. Unpaid BR 1
  4. Create BR2
  5. Apply to BR1 and Complete BR
  6. Create accounting

ANALYSIS
When BR is unpaid, the following accounting entries are created:    
 Dr Unpaid BR
                           Cr receivables

When unpaid BR is included in a new BR the following accounting entries are created:
 Dr Receivables
                            Cr Receivables

It should be
Dr Receivables
                            Cr Unpaid BR
