Oracle Financials for India - Version 12.2 to 12.2.4 [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 12.2.3 version, Accounting Issues in AP

When trying to account for an invoice cancellation through Actions>Create Accounting, invoice does not get accounted and Accounted status remains Partial.
Running the create accounting program however accounts for the invoice cancellation.

This is happening only if no IL taxes has been attached to the invoice. If IL Taxes are attached, then this issue is not appearing.

Expect the invoice to be accounted fully even through online accounting.

Steps to replicate the issue:-
1) Create an invoice. Do not attach IL and TDS tax.
2) Validate the invoice and create accounting.
3) Cancel the invoice.
4) Actions>Create Accounting. No Accounting Entries will be present for invoice cancellation event

Business Impact
The user cannot create accounting entries for the cancellation event.
