Installed Base Users - Fix Your IB Issues!

How FA and GL Calendars Work Together in R12 Versus R11i

Both FA and GL have calendar setups.  How do these setups work together?  In R11i, Assets maps the calendar period to GL using an exact match of period name.  If your GL period is SEP-14 for September 2014 (as an example), then your FA September 2014 period has to be called SEP-14 as well.  Any variance, even Sep-14 rather than SEP-14, will cause the posting from Assets to GL to fail.  Then you have to log a Service Request (SR) to get that data mismatch fixed.

R12: Resolve Supplier Bank Account Issues When Creating Payment For Customer Refunds

Whilst creating the payment for a Customer Refund (Payment Request) Invoice it is common to see the following error:

  • Supplier Bank Account attached to document payable is end dated

One reason for this message is that there is a missing record in the IBY_PMT_INSTR_USES_ALL table.
