Changes in AutoAccounting Setup in one Operating Unit Incorrectly Impacts other Operating Units (Doc ID 836271.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Receivables - Version 12.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Form:RAXSUAGL.FMB - Define Automatic Accounting


Symptoms

On 12.1.0 in Production:
When updating the Company segment of a particular operating unit in the AutoAccounting setup form, the changes incorrectly impact the Company segment of all other operating units.

For example, setup for ABC is complete for Receivables and Revenue. XYZ has not been setup yet, as shown below:

Operating UnitCompany Segment ValueReceivablesRevenue
ABC 1000 1000.123.000.000 1000.234.000.001
XYZ 2000 not yet set up not yet set up


After performing setup for Receivables and Revenue for XYZ, the system raises a warning:
This will impact other Company segment definitions.

Upon saving the changes, the Company segment for the GL accounts of ABC will incorrectly change from the original value of 1000 to 2000, as shown in bold below:

Operating UnitCompany Segment ValueReceivablesRevenue
ABC 1000 2000.123.000.000 2000.234.000.001
XYZ 2000 2000.456.000.011 2000.645.010.000



EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Expect that when the user updates the Company segment of a particular Operating Unit in the AutoAccounting setup form, it should not update the Company segment for all the other operating units.

STEPS
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Open AutoAccounting Setup form (Setup >Transactions >AutoAccounting)
  2. Query for Operating Unit ABC & verify the balancing segment value for the Type: Freight/Tax.
  3. Query for Operating Unit XYZ & update the Company segment value for the Type: Receivables
  4. Save it. It gives a message & then saves the transaction.
  5. Now query Operating Unit ABC again & note  that the Company segment value for the Type Freight/Tax is updated to the value that you indicated for Operating Unit XYZ.
