dgreybarrow How Fixed Assets (FA) Passes Journals To General Ledger (GL)

Before 11.5.9 and Fixed Assets patchset M (11i.FA.M), Journals created by the Create Journals process in FA were entered directly to the journal tables. For some time it was possible to have different period names between the two ledgers and change them using the General Ledger Change Periods feature.

Financials Family pack G or higher all journals to be passed from FA through the gl_interface table using the standard import mechanism (GLLEZL). Initially the import had to be launched from GL separately.Check out old post for R12 SLA Changes.

dgreybarrow Important FAQ – that user may ask

1. Are journal entries transferred to the GL in summary or detail format?

Journal entries are summarized to code combination ids within journal categories.

2. Why do I have journal entries for zero dollar amounts (i.e., debit 0, credit 0)?

The expense segment is part of a single distribution row, which also contains the assets owner and location. Changes to any one of these items will result in the creation of a new distribution. If a change is made in the location or owner, journal entries are posted to reflect the new distribution, even though there has been no accounting impact (thus the zero dollar accounting entries).

3. How often can I create journal entries?

You can run the Create Journal Entries program once per accounting period after you run the depreciation program.

4. What happens if I forget to create journal entries for an accounting period? For example, I created journal entries for AUG-08 and OCT-08, but forgot to create journal entries for SEP-08).

Oracle Assets lets you create journal entries for accounting periods in any order as long as you have ran depreciation for the period and the period is open in your general ledger.

5. How do I reconcile Oracle Assets with my general ledger?

Oracle Assets has a set of reports you use to reconcile asset cost, depreciation expense, and depreciation reserve accounts to your general ledger.
