Case Study Abstract
This case study describes how I defined the new functionality of MOAC in R12. To understand this, the reader must know how to configure ledger and accounting options in GL, which had not been discussed in this case study. This case study is for Intermediate level, with basic knowledge of defining ledger, accounting setup and multi org feature in 11i.
This case study shares my experience on how I defined the new feature of MOAC for accessing multiple operating units with single responsibility. In 11i I had to define multiple responsibilities to access multiple operating units. In other words, it was not possible for me to use single responsibility to access multiple operating units as MO: Operating Unit profile option can have only one operating unit value assigned to it. This case study is only for defining MOAC and not for defining ledger, accounting options and configuring payables.
