R12 SLA: Transaction Account Builder

In R12 apart from AWB [1],there is yet another toolset which is called Transaction Account Builder aka TAB which normally used to derive default accounts for a particular transactions using sources , which is defined in the Accounting Methods Builder (AMB). [1]

Normally this derives accounting codes from the TAB which internally driven the AMB setup attributes.

This is used derive default accounts for transactions before they are accounted and then it is used the AMB to generate the accounts that appear in the accounting.

TAB only derives default accounts for transactions. These accounts may not be the ones that appear on the subledger journal entries since these are generated by the Create Accounting program based on the application accounting definitions.

What are key components

The TAB Components figure below shows the components

Moreover you can see the source and account derivation rules(ADD) are shared with the AMB which was discussed in one of the last post.

Will discuss some more details for this utility in some another post and we will try to compare how its different from Autoaccounting?

TAB is used in R12 Advanced Global Intercompany System (AGIS) to derive the distributions. It replaces the auto accounting feature of GIS in 11i

In the case of AGIS these are not just defaults as AGIS does not use SLA to account the transactions, it either passes journals straight to GL or it creates AP and AR invoices. See this post for an example and pictorial representation


The reason we don’t call SLA to account AGIS transactions is that they are not ‘real’ transactions they are just a way to orchestrate intercompany transactions, put another way AGIS is not a subledger.

[…] ADD as discussed in earlier post , can be used for as it is or we can manage and configure the definition to accommodate own custom derivation rule. […]

In Sub-ledger accounting Method (SLAM) we are not able to see applications Inventory. How & where SLA rules can be setup for the Inventory related transactions.
