Symptoms

When entering invoices, if the asset category is entered at the line level, it is not copied over during the Mass Additions create process. 


Steps To Reproduce
----------------------
1. Enter invoices: enter asset category information
2. Validate invoice
3. Create accounting
4. Run Mass Additions Create
5. Review the invoice in Assets to Prepare Mass Additions

Changes

 

In R11i the functionality was as follows:

Define Items with Asset Categories: 

You can define a default asset category for an item in Purchasing or Inventory. Then when you purchase and pay for one of these items using Purchasing and Payables, the mass additions process defaults this asset category. On Matched invoices, Asset Category comes from setup for item and inventory organization in Financials system option. This is the only time Oracle Assets defaults an asset category for a new mass addition line.   

If you want mass addition lines for an item to appear in Oracle Assets with an asset category, you must: 

• Define a default asset category for an item in the Item window in Purchasing or Inventory for the organisation
• Create a purchase order for that item 
• Receive the item in either Purchasing or Inventory 
• Enter an invoice in Payables and match it to the outstanding purchase order 
• Approve the invoice 
• Post the invoice to General Ledger 

After you run create mass additions, the mass addition line appears with the asset category you specified for the item. 

In R12 a new feature was introduced to allow Enhanced Asset Tracking.  

This means that for PO Matched invoices the Asset Category value will default from the Item as detailed above, however, it can be manually overridden or manually populated at the invoice line level (if it is null due to item not being setup with category in Inventory) and this value should flow through to Fixed Assets on the Mass Addition Line.
