R12: When Using Intercompany Billing for Transactions Across Legal Entities Within the Same Operating Unit functionality, Does the 'Allow Cross Charges from Other Operating Units' Flag Need to be Checked? Why? (Doc ID 1985507.1)

Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

Yes.  It is required. 

The customer is using the new Intercompany Billing for Transactions Across Legal Entities Within the Same Operating Unit functionality.  He has done all of the setup in Oracle Project Billing Release Notes, Release Update Pack 6 for 12.1 (Doc ID 1602135.1) and Oracle Project Costing Release Notes, Release Update Pack 6 for 12.1 (Doc ID 1602128.1) but when he runs the PRC:  Generate Intercompany Invoice process, it finds no records to process.  Upon review of his log file and set up, the 'Allow Cross Charges from Other Operating Units' flag on the receiving project's task was NOT checked.  Once this flag is checked, the items are picked up and processed.  The customer wants to know if they are using functionality where they are cross charging in the SAME OU, then why would this box need to be checked.  Especially, if they did not want the project to accept cross charges from other OUs.
