AP:1) What are the different types of Interfaces?

Ans Refer Laxman Vendor import notes in scanned documents a) Vendor conversion / Import A vendor is any company or person that we buy goods or services from. Interface table --- we need to create our own custom interface table. Base tables PO_VENDORS (Segment1-Vendor number is unique) PO_VENDOR_CONTACTS PO_VENDOR_SITES_ALL b) Legacy Invoice Interface Tables AP_INVOICE _INTERFACE is the header info AP_INVOICES_LINES_INTERFACE is the lines table.


AP_INTERFACE_REJECTIONS (REJECT_LOOKUP_CODE stores the error occurred during the invoice import ex: account required, invalid supplier site )

2) What is the process of Vendor Conversion?

This is always custom work. There is no predefined program to import the vendors/supplier from legacy system to oracle. We need write the SQL*Loader file to custom interface table and write pl/sql programs to hit the base tables directly into the po_vendors table,po_vendor_sites_table and po_vendors_contacts. 3) In which table and column Vendor Number stores? In PO_VENDORS table SEGMENT1 stores the vendor number. User doesn’t know about the (vendor id) ids only the developer knows them. 4) After conversions how do you get the Next Vendor column? We need to resync the PO_UNIQUE_IDENTIFIER_CONTROL (field called CURRENT_MAX_UNIQUE_IDENTIFIER) with the sequence called PO_VENDORS_S. This resync was run after inserting into vendors and updating the info in the sites table. The current max unique identifier should be equal to the nextval in the po_vendors_s sequence. 5) What are the setups required for vendor conversions? Before loading from the legacy system to base table we need to define Supplier type, Payment type, Payment terms, Payment group. 6) Which module is the owner for vendor (supplier) tables? Ans--- Purchasing module is the owner of the supplier table. 7) What is the process of creating an Invoices and transferring it to GL? a) create batch b) create invoice c) create distribution d) validate the invoice

12) How many types of purchase order types/agreements are there? a) Standard Purchase Order b) Planned PO : A planned purchase order is a long-term agreement committing to buy it items or services from a single source. You must specify tentative delivery schedules and all details for goods or services that you want to buy, including charge account, quantities and estimated cost. EX: Buying goods for Christmas from a specific dealer. c) Contract PO : You create contract purchase agreement with your supplier to agree on specific terms and conditions without indicating the goods and services that you will be purchasing i.e. for $ amount you must supply this much quantity. You can later issue standard PO referencing your contracts and you can encumber these purchase orders if you use encumbrance accounting. d) Blanket PO : You create blanket purchase agreements when you know the detail of goods or services you plan to buy from a specific supplier in a period , but you do not yet know the detail of your delivery schedules. You can use blanket purchase agreements to specify negotiated prices for your items before actually purchasing them. A Blanket Purchase Agreement is a sort of contract between the you and ur supplier about the price at which you will purchase the items from the supplier in future. Here you enter the price of the item not the quantity of the items. When you create the release you enter the quantity of the items. The price is not updatable in the release. The quantity * price makes the Released Amount. Now suppose your contract with your supplier is such that you can only purchase the items worth a fixed amount against the contract. 13) What is 2-way, 3-way, 4-way matching? 2-way matching: 2-way matching verifies that Purchase order and invoice quantities must match within your tolerances as follows: Quantity billed <= Quantity Ordered Invoice price <= Purchase order price (<= sign is used because of tolerances) Often used for services where no receiver is generated.

3-way matching: 3-way matching verifies that the receipt and invoice information match with the quantity tolerances defined: Quantity billed <= Quantity received 4-way matching: 4-way matching verifies that acceptance documents and invoice information match within the quantity tolerances defined: Quantity billed <= Quantity accepted. (Acceptance is done at the time of Inspecting goods). Whether a PO shipment has 2-way, 3-way or 4-way matching can be setup in the Shipment Details zone of the Enter PO form (character) Receipt required Yes Yes No Inspection required Yes No No Matching 4-way 3-way 2-way
