1. What is TCA? Tables? A) Trading Community Architecture. It is a centralized repository of business entities such as Partners, Customers, and Organizations etc. It is a new framework developed in Oracle 11i.

HZ_PARTIES: The HZ_PARTIES table stores basic information about parties that can be shared with any relationship that the party might establish with another party. Although a record in the HZ_PARTIES table represents a unique party, multiple parties can have the same name. The parties can be one of four types: Organization for example, Oracle CorporationPerson for example, Jane DoeGroup for example, World Wide Web ConsortiumRelationship for example, Jane Doe at Oracle Corporation. HZ_LOCATIONS: The HZ_LOCATIONS table stores information about a delivery or postal address such as building number, street address, postal code, and directions to a location. This table provides physical location information about parties (organizations and people) and customer accounts. HZ_PARTY_SITES: The HZ_PARTY_SITES table links a party (see HZ_PARTIES) and a location (see HZ_LOCATIONS) and stores location-specific party information. One party can optionally have one or more party sites. One location can optionally be used by one or more parties. This party site can then be used for multiple customer accounts within the same party. HZ_CUST_ACCT_SITES_ALL HZ_CUST_SITE_USES_ALL HZ_CUST_CONTACT_POINTS etc. 2. What are Base Tables or Interface Tables for Customer Conversions, Autolockbox, Auto Invoice? A) Customer Conversion: Interface Tables : RA_CUSTOMERS_INTERFACE_ALL, RA_CUSTOMER_PROFILES_INT_ALL, RA_CONTACT_PHONES_INT_ALL, RA_CUSTOMER_BANKS_INT_ALL, RA_CUST_PAY_METHOD_INT_ALL Base Tables : RA_CUSTOMERS, RA_ADDRESSES, RA_SITE_USES_ALL, RA_CUSTOMER_PROFILES_ALL, RA_PHONES etc B) Auto Invoice: Interface Tables : RA_INTERFACE_LINES_ALL, RA_INTERFACE_DISTRIBUTIONS_ALL RA_INTERFACE_SALESCREDITS_ALL, RA_INTERFACE_ERRORS_ALL Base Tables : RA_CUSTOMER_TRX_ALL, RA_CUSTOMER_TRX_LINES_ALL, RA_CUST_TRX_LINE_GL_DIST_ALL, RA_CUST_TRX_LINE_SALESREPS_ALL, RA_CUST_TRX_TYPES_ALL C) AutoLockBox: Interface Tables : AR_PAYMENTS_INTERFACE_ALL (POPULATED BY IMPORT PROCESS) Interim tables : AR_INTERIM_CASH_RECEIPTS_ALL (All Populated by Submit Validation) : AR_INTERIM_CASH_RCPT_LINES_ALL, AR_INTERIM_POSTING Base Tables : AR_CASH_RECEIPTS_ALL, AR_RECEIVABLE_APPLICATIONS_ALL, AR_PAYMENT_SCHEDULES_ALL ( All Populated by post quick cash)

suppliers, and competitors, that are related to your customers is called a Trading Community BEFORE TCA : 1.There are multiple customer definitions across the enterprise. 2.It was very difficult to track current and historical information about the customers. 3.There was a lack of support for mixed business. 4.It was quite tough to understand relationships between customers and others (suppliers, partners, competitors) Trading Community Architecture: Trading Community Architecture is the implementation of technology and applications to allow users to create and maintain relationships among entities. It is a way to understand who your customer interacts with inside and outside the enterprise. The Purpous of Interduce TCA. 1.Create a central repository for the entire E-Business Suite to store information relating to all members of a trading community versus separate

tables for each memberProspects, Customers, Contacts, Employees, Partners, Distributors, Suppliers, Banks, etc. 2.Record complex business relationships between Trading Community entities (including 3rd party relationships). 3.Support all business models, industries, and geographies *** By Using the TCA we can avoide the Duplicity of Trading Partner records and its also impacted byt the MOAC and other few concepts where we can use the Suppliers banks and Customers acrros the Business Unit leve
