I tried to setup and erred at the first step.

In the Receipt classes, I tried to enter the Bank Accounts and found none of my Bank accounts appearing in the LOV. Is it due to any missing setup or bug. Pls advise.

#6 Comment By Bobby On July 4, 2008 @ 1:50 am

I have a situation where I want to create a single payment to multiple sites of a supplier.

Also the same time the supplier sites acts as customer.

In the end of the day, I will have to both pay and collect money from the sites…

Can I utilize the AP/AR netting for this scenario?

Also the preference of netting is payments. (90% of the time I need to pay the sites after netting)

Please throw some light on this scenario.

Dear Bobby,

Not sure, what version you are using

if you are in 11i, there is something called Contra Charging, where supplier and customer as treated as customer and supplier to each other and at the end of month, you need to net off the amount and then raise credit memo or debit memo depends what is total net off amount.

In R12, The same functionality have been enhanced by Ap-AR netting.

If you need any further information , do let me know, i will help you.

there is seperate Post in some time, just check the details
