Why is Only "Cash Clearing" a Required Field on Bank Account Setup and not the Other Accounts?

(Doc ID 1969624.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Cash Management - Version 12.0.6 to 12.1.3 [Release 12 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On the Bank Account Setup: "Manage Bank Accounts" -> "Account Controls" -> "General Controls", why is only "Cash" account marked as mandatory (*)?

The other 3 accounts "Cash Clearing", "Bank Charges", "Bank Errors" are not mandatory. Users feel that this will lead to errors when creating accounting for the transactions as when "Cash Clearing" account is not setup, accounting will fail with following message:

Error Number

"Subledger Accounting was unable to derive an accounting code combination using the account derivation rule Cash Clearing Account owned by Oracle. Please review the account derivation rule and make sure it derives a valid accounting flexfield combination for the source values passed for the transaction."

Users would like to know why these accounts are not made mandatory by the Application.
