Documentation about the 'Only Process Paid Orders' Option on the 'Populate Billing' Page Is Not Clear

(Doc ID 1921666.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise SCM Order Management - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Following the release 9.2 fix for the <Bug 18826206> (see Knowledge <Document 1920819.1>), the documentation for the 'Only Process Paid Orders' option on the 'Populate Billing' Page is not clear. Below is what you can read in the PeopleBooks. The information in the 'Populating Billing for Counter Sales Orders' section is actually correct but the information in the 'Populate Billing Page' section can make you think that the option is valid for regular Sales Orders too which is not the case.

PeopleSoft FSCM 9.2 > PeopleSoft Order Management > Populating Billing > Populate Billing Page

Only Process Paid Orders: You can optionally select paid orders.

 

PeopleSoft FSCM 9.2 > PeopleSoft Order Management > Entering Counter Sales > Understanding Counter Sales > Populating Billing for Counter Sales Orders

You can optionally select the Only Process Paid Orders option on the run control page of the Populate Billing process to limit processing of fully paid or partially paid activity and exclude on account activity. In doing so, customers can process paid orders regularly, but need to wait to process their on account VAT activity until the end of the month or when it makes sense for the organization.

 

Changes

The confusion about the 'Only Process Paid Orders' option is increased after installing the <Patch 18826206> which is incorporated in a PeopleSoft Image for FSCM 9.2 starting with Image 9.2.008 (see Knowledge <Document 1920819.1>).
