Goal

We would like to use transaction account builder instead of modifying cost management account generator as recommend by Oracle. We have used account methods builder to produce desired subledger accounting journals however we would like to have the subledger transaction accounts be same as the GL.
Specifically for "PO Delivery into Inventory" we would like to produce specific accounts for Purchase price variance and Material Overhead absorption.
It appears the Transaction account builder functionality is not available.
I have already successfully implemented using account derivation rules and accounting method builder.

The issue that we would like to resolve is that the inventory material distributions are not modified using this method, only the journal lines transferred to GL, thus there is a discrepancy between inventory material distributions in the subledger and GL. Transaction account builder is suppose to address this issue, however can it be used in R12.0.6 cost management for this purpose?
