Funds Check Fails for a Budget Year Shorter than Accounting/Fiscal Year (Doc ID 2019476.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 14, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle General Ledger - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Budget Year, Encumbrance Year, Budget Periods, Funds Check, Budgetary Control, Funds Inquiry

Symptoms

1. You have defined a short year Budget , having a fewer number of periods (e.g. only 9 periods, from Jan-15 to Sep-15), whereas the Accounting or Fiscal calendar is defined with 12 periods (Jan-15 to Dec-15).

2. Encumbrance accounting is also enabled.

3. Accounts in Budget Organization are setup with: Funds Check level = Absolute / Amount type = YTD / Boundary = Year

4. Users are successfully entering Encumbrance transactions against period Oct-15.

5. Doing Funds Inquiry in Sep-15 or any previous period, you find that funds available were reduced by the Encumbrance transactions entered after the last period of Budget year.

It was expected that Funds Check is performed only for the periods included in the budget year. Transactions booked after Sep-15 - the last period of budget year - should not affect available funds.
