How To Define Inventory Cost Of Goods Sold Account Workflow? (Doc ID 747638.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 26, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Inventory Management - Version 11.5.10.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
***This document includes all version of Oracle E-Business Suite 11i and Release 12***


Goal

In the Inventory Management User's Guide you can find the following text for Account Generator on Accounting Distributions for Intercompany Accounts Payable Invoice section:

Account Generator

"The Created Intercompany Accounts Payable (AP) invoices process uses the Account Generator
process Inventory Cost of Goods Sold Account to construct the
expense account for regular invoice lines. You must set up this process before you can user the
Create Intercompany AP Invoice process."

On release 11i and 12.X you can notice the mentioned workflow is missing hence the entire intercompany invoicing process is failing.

So you have the question on how to define the workflow that will be used to build the COGS account in the Intercompany AP invoice?

Steps:
Navigate to:
Inventory > Setup > Flexfields > Key >Accounts
Query the account: "Inventory Cost of Goods Sold" (COGS) and see this entry is missing.

The query returned: No data found.

This is due to the seeded workflow "Inventory Cost of Goods Sold Account" (INVFLXWF) is missing.
