R12: EXP Accounts in PO and OPM are Not the Same
Last updated on NOVEMBER 17, 2017
Applies to:Oracle Process Manufacturing Financials - Version 12.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Executable:GMFXUPD - OPM Accounting Pre-Processor
There are inconsistent postings between Process manufacturing (OPM), Oracle Purchasing (PO) and
Oracle Accounts Payable (AP).
The AP Accrual account being used when the receipt was matched to the invoice in Payables was
not the same as the one used by OPM Subledger Accounting for the same receipt.
The accrual account being used in Payables is the one that was on the original Purchase Order (as
derived from the setup in MTL_Parameters) and not the one derived using SLA in OPM.
No SLA setup has been done in Payables.
In OPM the accrual account is being derived by an Account Derivation Rule (ADR) which uses the
Item's GL Category to derive the account. Internally within OPM, the posting are correct.
Either of the following scenarios would be preferable to the Customer:
- OPM to use the accrual account from the PO line, or
- AP to derive the accrual account from the same ADR as used by OPM
