A R12 APXINWKB WRONG DISTRIBUTION ACCOUNT FOR FREIGHT ALLOCATION ON MATCH TO PO LINES FOR INVENTORY (Doc ID 974283.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

In Payables setup you defined an account for the Freight, when Inventory account for the ITEM line is being used.
You then do match to receipt for an invoice, and make sure that in the distributions the ITEM line as INVENTORY account.
You then add manually a FREIGHT line and click the ALLOCATIONS button, and indeed the applications create the FREIGHT distribution line using the account setup in Payables options, as it should.

However, if during the match to receipt you tick the MISC / FREIGHT tick box, a small windows is poping up, and allow you to add manually FREIGHT amount, however when using this method the applications is creating FRIGHT distribution line using the INVENTORY charge account coming from the PO, instead of using the FREIGHT account defined in Payables > Setup > Options.
