Journals Summarization in GL Different in R12 Versus R11i

(Doc ID 1574975.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 09, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Assets - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

SLA setup was done and journals created.  The journals for FA additions should have a merged line but don't.  Multiple assets are added; all with the same category, asset key, location and depreciation expense account.  Expect that the resulting addition journal will have a single journal line for the addition depreciation expense, rather that a journal line for each asset.

 The level of detail is inadequate.  The line is summarized at the code combination level but line description is populated in 11i.  But in R12, the line description has Journal Import Created only.  The journals need to to have meaningful journal line descriptions.

Example: 

Setting Summarization to No at the subledger options level in GL and Detailed at the JLT level in SLA, delivers the description in GL.  But, it creates more than 60000+ Journals and headers.

In 11i, it used to be summed up at the code combination level.

If Summarize by Gl Period in GL and Summary in JLT level in SLA is used, get summarization at the code combination level, but then miss out on the line description.
