Oracle Receivables - Version 12.2.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Why is Receivables entries made during the month transferred to General Ledger during the month but in general ledger their effective date is month end?
For example I entered a receipt in the receivables on GL date 01-may-15 and then transferred to GL on 14-May-17 but in General Ledger a Journal Effective Date Is Period Last Day which is 31-May-2017
