Oracle Fixed Assets creates journal entries for your depreciation expense, asset cost, and other accounts. That means application automatically creates transaction journal entries for your general ledger, if you have defined and configure set up the journal entry category for that transaction type for that book. Oracle Assets creates journal entries that summarize the activity for each account for each transaction type.

Another good things for FA is its allows you to run the Create Journal Entries program multiple times before closing the depreciation period. You can post journal entries to Oracle General Ledger for all transactions that have occurred thus far in an open depreciation period. If additional transactions occur during the open period, you need to rerun Depreciation, then you can rerun the Create Journal Entries program.

Not only it create the Journal entry but also allows you to roll back journal entries in an open depreciation period,and this should be as long as applies to those journals which havn't posted to General Ledger. After doing the necessary adjustments, you can run the Create Journal Entries program once again and post the journals to General Ledger.

You should also note , you cannot roll back individual journal entries. The reason .. when you run the Rollback Journal Entries program, all journals created thus far in the current open depreciation period will be rolled back. These journals will be reprocessed the next time you run the Create Journal Entries program.

In case of Rollback Journal Entries program failure, for example, if you have already posted some additional journals to General Ledger, you can still continue to process additional transactions. However, you will not be able to re-run journal entries for that period until you have fixed the error and run the Rollback Journal Entries program successfully.Sound good!!

Once you close the depreciation period, you can run the Create Journal Entries program only once more. When the depreciation period is closed, you cannot roll back Create Journal Entries, and therefore, cannot run the program again.Hope this makes clear.

dgreybarrow-2Creating journal entries

Creation of Journal entries in Oracle Consist into two step process:

  1. At the end of each accounting period, run the depreciation program for each of your books.
  2. Run the Create Journal Entries program to create journal entries to your general ledger.
  • Case 1 : Period is Closed
    • If the period is closed, you can run the Create Journal Entries program only once for each period in each book for which you allow posting to the general ledger.
  • Case II : Period is Open
    • If the period is still open, you can run the Create Journal Entries program multiple times before closing the period.

dgreybarrow-2Journal Entries :

Case 1 : When you are in 11i

The create journal entries process creates journal entries for the appropriate general ledger set of books.

Case 2 :When you are in R12

The Create Accounting process creates journal entries for the appropriate Ledger.

    Companies of all sizes should be concerned with ghost assets. These are assets that are currently depreciating but in actuality are not being used due to being broken, stolen, or replaced. This will cause overpayments in insurance premiums and property taxes. Proper use of Fixed Asset Software in conjunction with annual inventories will help reduce the number of ghost assets on the ledger.
