Sunday, 22 June 2008 14:27 Puneet Vishnoi E-mail | Print | PDF Please find first in the series of articles on R12 Subledger Accounting from Puneet Vishnoi. Puneet is a freelance consultant in Europe. Prior to freelancing, he was one of the key developers in Oracle Corporation for Oracle Projects Accounting and Oracle Grants Applications. Puneet has designed numerous critical solutions in Oracle Applications R12 and 11i. He has vast experience in new R12 General Ledger Architecture. Puneet Vishnoi also happens to be an excellent troubleshooter, resolving various business critical issues when he was in Oracle Corporation. This article is Part-1 of Subledger Accounting. Why SLA and what does it do? Oracle Sub Ledger accounting (SLA) is accounting hub in Oracle Application Release 12 (R12). It is used to derive all attributes required to account a transaction in Oracle General Ledger. In R12, SLA is used to derive the very basic accounting attributes like entered amount, accounted amount, Date, Currency code etc and the complex attributes like Ledger, Code Combination ID, Periods etc. After deriving these accounting attributes the transactions are then interfaced to GL from SLA. Thus in R12 no sub ledgers (AP, PO, PA etc) interfaces the transactions directly to GL, but all the transactions are interfaced to GL in following 2 steps: 1. Sub ledgers interface the data to SLA. 2. SLA derives the accounting information and interfaces the data to GL. SLA gives the flexibility to manage the entire accounting rule at one place, which acts as a single source of truth for GL. Note: There is no separate responsibility to access SLA setup or the view the transactions generated by SLA. Rather we can access SLA setup and review accounted transactions with extended menus attached to each sub ledger module. Menu to access the SLA accounted transactions.

Menu to access the SLA Setup.

How does SLA works? 1. Register sub ledger transactions in SLA. After validating / approving / costing the transaction in the respective module, the sub ledger calls SLA API to create a reference of the validated transaction in SLA. This reference is known as EVENT. Events are created by calling the public API ³xla_events_pub_pkg.create_events´ provided by SLA. It is up to the sub ledgers on how to call the API. For example Oracle Projects call this API from concurrent program ³PRC: Generate Cost Accounting Events´ and Oracle Payables calls this API while user creates accounting for the Invoice. While calling xla_events_pub_pkg.create_events, oracle passes a unique id and event class (Will discuss in next step). Unique ID can be an invoice id or a po_distribution id or an expenditure_item_id etc. As soon as the sub ledger generates event in SLA, SLA returns unique event_id. This event_id will then act as a reference to all the accounting entries generated by the SLA. Once event is successfully created in SLA, means that the transaction is registered in SLA for accounting. Taking the example of Oracle Projects in 11i where after costing the transaction user need to run the µPRC: Interface Cost to General Ledger¶ followed by µJournal Import¶ followed by µPRC: Tieback process¶. But in R12 user only need to run ³PRC: Generate Cost Accounting Events´ which will register events in SLA and thereafter SLA will take care of accounting the transaction and interfacing it to GL. There is no tieback process in R12, as there is one to one reference of event id between SLA and sub ledger tables.

2. How does SLA understand whether unique id is invoice id or a po_distribution id or an expenditure_item_id as SLA uses same table to store all the identifier? In step 1 we discussed that while creating the event we also need to pass event class. This event class is used to distinguish between the types of transaction passed for processing. To understand this better we will go thru the seeded oracle information.

Navigation: Responsibility: Projects, Vision Services (USA) Menu: Setup > Subledger Accounting > Accounting Methods Builder > Events > Event Modal

This screen shows the hierarchical structure of different transactions that can be interfaced to SLA. Because the above screen shot is from Oracle Projects responsibility thus it shows only the projects related transactions. In the entity screen we see only those transactions that can be interfaced to

Supplier Cost etc. Gather information from base tables in sub ledgers. e. Event Class window displays the different kind of expenditure transactions that can be interfaced to GL. Create lines in XLA_AE_HEADERS and XLA_AE_LINES. In PA we have different event types like Labor Cost. Create journal lines based on the seeded Journal definition. Per the screenshot Oracle is passing expenditure_Item_id for entity µEXPENDITURE¶. we can create accounting entries by running executable XDODTEXE. Usage Cost.the GL. SOURCE_ID_DATE_1 to 4. Identifiers are the unique ID that is passed to SLA from sub ledgers. Around 160 concurrent programs are uses the same executable for example in Projects it is used with name ³PRC: Create Accounting´. The identifier columns that can be used are SOURCE_ID_INT_1 to 4. d. Derive code combination id based on the business rules. This executable does the following: a. SOURCE_ID_CHAR_1 to 4 these values and columns are present in table XLA_TRANSACTION_ENTITIES. that¶s why we do not see Invoice as one of the entity as Invoices are not directly interfaced to GL from PA but they are routed thru AR. how SLA creates accounting lines? After registering the event in SLA. 3. c. b. ³Identifier Column´ field under Identifier window tells what column in SLA table should store expenditure_item_id. This level of hierarchy is known as Event class. which is further classified into Event Types. Based on the identifiers and event class. . Misc Cost. This executable is provided by SLA and is used by all the sub ledgers with different concurrent program names. Derive the accounting attributes based on the data fetched from sub ledgers. Further we could classify Supplier Cost as Expense Report and Invoices as Oracle Projects can interfaces only these 2 transactions from AP.

com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/473-r12-sla-basics Tuesday. Event types are therefore the types/list of events against transactions which you wish to account for in General Ledger. there may be a need to generate accounting whenever a Purchase Order is encumbered. Likewise when a Payables Invoice is Validated.Event Types http://apps2fusion. an INVOICE transaction and a PAYMENT transactions are known as Entities within SLA. Entities. whenever your Invoice is validated or cancelled or adjusted. you may want some specific accounts in the General Ledger to be impacted. For Payables. then you may want to create an accounting entry. For example in Procurement. It is important for you to understand the variables within SLA engine which influence whether an accounting entry needs to be generated for a specific event within subledger like Payables or Receivables. And your accounting rules for Invoice Validation will be attached against this specific "Event Type". for example. the activity of "Encumbrance" against a Purchase Order is known as Event Type. against the Event classes we define Event Types. Expense Reports. Invoices etc. Further to this. for example Credit Memo.SLA Part 2 Entities . Event Classes and Event Types. In case of SLA.e. 30 November 2010 00:00 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF In this article you understand some of the basics fabrics/terminology used in SLA. Entities can be subdivided into various "Event Classes". . In this case the "Invoice Validation" is an "Event Type". Debit Memo.Event Class . i.

.This is explained in the diagram below.

.

.

Each entity is identified by unique identifier or primary key from the underlying tables. .

To create any journal.Journal Line Definition http://apps2fusion.SLA Part 3 . Also. but you also need to decide whether a specific CCID will be debited or credited. . you can then "attach something called an ADR to this Journal Line Type". SLA needs to know where this CCID will be coming from. one of the key things is to get the CCID or the code combination of segments. the "Journal Line Type" will specify whether the accounting entry is credit or debit. Therefore you not just require the CCID. In SLA.com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/474-sla-journal-linedefinition Wednesday. 01 December 2010 07:24 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF The Journal Line Definition "defines" how the entire journal is built. You also need to know whether this CCID will be debit or this CCID will go into credit. The ADR returns the final code combination. Therefore Journal Line type will leverage the JLT+ADR to know which CCID is crediting and which CCID is debiting in the journal.

Using JED in SLA you can build header or line level descriptions. For example you may want Customer Name or Customer Number in the journal description for a journal that is initiated from Oracle Receivables module. The image below describes the end result journal that is produced by SLA . However where these standard seeded accounting do not suffice.For each and every application there is a combination of event class and event type. When a transaction is transferred as a journal. you can go and modify SLA to meet your business needs. For example you can fetch the standard accounting from payables or receivables options. then every journal has credit/debit and description. There is something called as Journal Entry Description. The standard SLA out of the box from Oracle meets your requirement by 90%. Depending upon the combination of event class and event type the accounting gets triggered. The journal has description at header and also at line level. The JED allows you to generate the description of the Journal at both header and line level.

Further to that you can specify if SLA should merge the journal lines that have same .In JLT Journal Line Type. you can specify whether the entry is for credit or debit side. The Journal Line Type also provides options to do accounting for Gain/Loss of Foreign currency transactions.

CCID. .

We tell the system how we want the CCID should be built and transferred to the general ledger.ADR . .We specify how the account combination must be generated. You can either transfer the standard account as calculated within Subledger(AP or AR or PA etc) or the account generated from Subledger can be modified or replaced via ADR configuration within SLA.

when defining ADR. These conditions are like IF Conditions.Further to this. It is good to remember that the "Journal Line Definition=JED+JLT+ADR" This is visible from the screenshot as shown below . you can specify the conditions under which a specific segment or CCID is returned.

You will notice that two "Journal Line Types" have been attached to this Journal Line Definition. The first journal line type assignment creates a credit line in the journal and the second journal line type assignment creates a debit line in the journal. .

By now you would have understood the significance of Journal Line Definition. We will learn this via AAD in next part of the article using Application Accounting Definitions. . how will SLA decide how the Journal will be constructed when an invoice is validated within Payables. However you might be wondering how this Journal Line Definition gets associated with a Subledger transaction. In other words. For example. how does Oracle E-Business Suite decide which specific Journal Line Definition should be used when a specific event takes place against an invoice in Oracle Payables.

SLA Part 4 . you will see how the "Journal that gets constructed using Journal Line Definition" is associated with an underlying transaction in the respective module.Application Accounting Definitions http://apps2fusion. In this Part 4.com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/475-sla-part-4-applicationaccounting-definitions Thursday. 02 December 2010 00:00 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF In the SLA Part 2 article you Entities. Event Class and Event Types. In the SLA Part 3 you learnt the high level basics of Journal Line Definitions. .

As seen in the image above. Effectively it means that AAD = JLD for an Event Class+ Event Type combination = ADR+JED+JLT for an Event Class+ Event Type combination . the Application Accounting Definitions [AAD] is attached to one or more Journal Line definition [JLD].

Therefore if you have one Ledger implemented [ 11i Set Of Books] and two modules implemented like AP and AR.e. In the next article you will see Subledger Accounting Method. then you will have 2 AAD's defined. which means creating custom JLT. It is important to remember that you must create a custom copy of an existing SLA component before making modifications. custom JED and custom ADR as appropriate. Seeded Application Accounting Definitions are provided for each module out of the box by Oracle. However in reality you will have more than one event classes like Invoices. one for Payables and another for Receivables. and then make alterations to the custom AAD. you must remember that each Application Accounting Definition [AAD] belongs to a module. . Payments etc associated with a AAD for Payables module. However if the existing definitions do not meet your business requirements. then you can copy the existing AAD's to a custom AAD. In the above picture only one Event Class of Invoice is used in AAD.As a thumb rule. i.

the Application Accounting definition is used to decide two things a. Hence SLAM provides an umbrella to join accounting entries from various modules so that they can be channelled through to Oracle General Ledger. If you recollect from previous article. This is where "Subledger Accounting Method" [SLAM] comes into the play. A SLAM is then attached to the Ledger[11i equivalent of Set Of Books]. In other words a SLAM is a collection of accounting definitions for various modules in Oracle Apps. However.SLA Part 5 .Subledger Accounting Methods http://apps2fusion.com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/476-sla-subledger-accounting-methods As we have seen in the Part 4 of SLA. When a specific event within Subledger example Payables or Receivables becomes eligible for Accounting b. Application Accounting Definition is connected to only one module like Payables or Receivables etc. How the journal is constructed. However a Ledger[11i SOB equivalent] needs accounting entries to be processed across many modules. Therefore the flow of accounting entries appears as shown below . each Primary Ledger[ 11i equivalent of primary set of book] and also each secondary ledger should be able to generate Journals as per their respective legislator requirements for all the modules implemented.

.

Click on update against the ledger .The flow represented in simple equation appears as below Ledger Defined in GL-->SLAM-->AAD--> [Event Class and Event Type]-->Liability Lines-->[JED+JLT+ADR] Ledger Defined in GL-->SLAM-->AAD--> [Event Class and Event Type]-->Expense Lines-->[JED+JLT+ADR] In order to assign the SLAM to a ledger. go to the General Ledger Super User responsibility and click on menu as shown below.

Attach the SLAM to this ledger .

You can also modify the SLA accounting options using the two screenshots as shown below .

.

.

.Overall SLA Diagram Tuesday. 07 December 2010 00:00 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF The overall flow of the SLA can therefore be depicted as shown in image below.SLA Part 6 .

.

you can follow the bottom up model. The parallel flow on top.Overall. as shown in image below is to ensure both a Credit and Debit line gets created for a Journal . when you create new definitions in SLA.

and the other set for the debit line. with one set each for Credit line. However to create a Journal Line Definition.com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/478-sla-step-by-step-example-setup In this article we will create a Journal Line Definition. two set of JED.JLT and ADR·s are required. . we need to create the following 1. In this article.Creating Journal Line Definition http://apps2fusion. You will basically apply the steps learnt thus far into practical implementation. Journal Entry Description for journal line description 2.SLA Part 7 . Account Derivation Rules for CCID used in journal line Therefore typically. we will create these three components. Journal Line Type to mainly define credit or debit 3.

.

Create a new Journal Entry Description named ANIL_JED. We will use this for generating the Journal Line Description for both the credit and the debit lines. Click on New to create a new JED.Go to a subledger like Payables and within the SLA menu as shown below. you can open the Journal Enty Description screen. .

.

The description of the journal line can be a static text or dynamic text based on database sources within SLA or the combination of the two.The journal line description can be constructed by clicking on Details button. .

.Here we are using the Supplier Name to construct the journal line description.

then Journal Line Description should be abcd .In addition to the dynamic journal line text. For example IF CONDITION1=TRUE. SLA allows you to put conditions.

ELSE IF CONDITION2=TRUE. . then Journal Line Description should be defg Click on condition button to define the condition After defining the Journal Entry description. now we can create Journal Line Type named ANIL_JLT_CREDIT for the credit line of the journal.

.

.

as explain in image below . Also specify Merge.Specify the Transfer to GL in Summary or Detail mode.

Use the Payables setup option as source to build condition for JLT .

. In the above condition. we want to build a condition for ´Journal Line Typeµ eligibility depending upon whether in the Payables Options Screen has Automatic Offset Method is set to None or Balancing or Account.In this example. we have placed an OR condition.

.

You can for example also build a condition based on Invoice Distribution type as shown below. .

Next we need to define the Account Derivation Rule .

.Here we are creating an account derivation rule for the credit line.

The values can be sourced either statically or from existing seeded dynamic sources in SLA. These seeded sources are mapped to database tables. .An ADR can either return a full CCID or a specific segment.

We are stating that this specific ADR named ANIL_LIABILITY_ADR will return a constant value in company segment .

g combination is returned for your . When CONDITION1=TRUE then segment combonation a.c.d is returned or when CONDITION2=TRUE then d.e.f. it is also possible for the specific ADR to return a full segment combination. As below.In the above image you will see that the value for Company segment can be derived from the corresponding value set. In fact you can specify conditions within an ADR.b.

account. we are saying that the Account segment must always be 7450 . For the debit side.

The conditions can be defined. But conditions as evaluated as per the priority. .

.Finally we create a Journal Line Definition.

we are saying that the CCID for the Credit Line of the journal will be calculated from ANIL_LIABILITY_ADR .Here everything hangs together.ADR=Journal Line Defnition As shown below. JLTJLD.

And the CCID for the debit line will be calculated by the CCID value in Invoice Distribution line. with the specific segment from Account segment being replaced as per ANIL_EXPENSE_ADR. .

For example.B.F .E.D.E.D.F then your journal line debit entry will be A.C.B. if the CCID in AP_INVOICE_DISTRIBUTION equates A.7450.

However. you have learnt creation of the Journal Line Definition. If you recollect.PO etc there will exist an existing AAD in the Subledger Modules.AAD Thursday. However. for this example we will create a new AAD for Payables.com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/497-sla-part-8-creating-application-accounting-definition-aad SLA Part 8 . as per the image below. which is "Application Accounting Definition".AR. the "Journal Line Definition" definition creates a Credit Line and the Debit Line of a Journal. 09 December 2010 00:00 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF In the previous part of this SLA article. . in AAD screen you will specify when the Journal Line Definition will be used. Now it is time to create AAD. In this case.Creating Application Accounting Definition . Oracle ships out of the box an AAD for every simply module/application that uses SLA.http://apps2fusion. In the previous article you created a Journal Line Definition that is responsible for constructing a Journal. Hence for each application like AP. we are stating that journal line definition ANIL_JLD should be used for creating journal whenever any event occurs against an Invoice in Payables. The purpose of AAD in SLA is to dictate which "Journal Line Definition" must be used when a specific event takes place against a specific type of transaction in a specific module like Payables or Receivables.PA.

in Journal Entry Description. If you recollect.You can also click on "Header Assignment" button in AAD to attached "Journal Entry Description" [JED] which dictates how the Journal Header description will be constructed. we concatenate static text and dynamic content from SLA Sources[mapped to DB columns or pl/sql functions] so as to construct a description for Journal Line or Journal header. .

Using AAD we specify the Journal creation rules per module. In SLAM we specify how the Journals must be built for the entire organization "APPS2FUSION UK" across Payables and Receivables and Project Accounting. .In this article we have seen that AAD is created for each module. Hence we need to create a SLAMSubledger Accounting Method. However. in any implementation there is a need to perform accounting for all the modules. and hence the SLAM will be attached to the UK Legal Entity. "APPS2FUSION UK" might be running Payables and Receivables and also Project Accounting. The company "APPS2FUSION UK" will have a legal entity in UK.

.

In SLAM we specify the applications/modules for which the Journals must be built for the entire organization such as "APPS2FUSION UK" across Payables and Receivables and Project Accounting. However. 10 December 2010 00:00 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF In previous article we have seen that in SLA. Hence we need to create a SLAM [Subledger Accounting Method] that will take care of generating the Accounting journal lines for each of the module. . Hence a SLAM is nothing but a grouping of all the AAD's possibly for a given chart of account.com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/498-subledger-accounting-method SLA Part 9 . the "Application Accounting Definition" is created for each module in EBusiness Suite. in any implementation there is a need to perform accounting across various different modules. The company such as "APPS2FUSION UK" will have a legal entity in UK. a company named "APPS2FUSION UK" might be running Payables and Receivables and also Project Accounting.Create Subledger Accounting Method Friday. For example.http://apps2fusion. In the image below we are creating a SLAM named ANIL_SLAM. The decision of whether the journal must be created is delegated to the AAD. As for how the journal is constructed and how the accounts are derived is delegated to the Journal Line Definition. and hence the SLAM will be attached to the UK Legal Entity. Using AAD we specify the Journal creation rules per module. because in reality you will have the AAD's of other applications like Receivables . Fixed Assets etc attached to the SLAM as well. This is a simplistic example. Project Accounting. and attaching the AAD named ANIL_PAYABLES.

. To remind you. in R12. click on Accounting Setups. and here you can attach the SLAM to a Ledger.In the above image. the Ledger is equivalent of set of books in 11i.

.

. In this article.Testing and explaination of SLA Config Monday. we will test the configuration to see the results of the configuration performed in Part 7 to Part 9 of the SLA articles. we understood the basic concepts of Subledger Accounting. In the image below we are creating an Invoice from Payables responsibility and ensuring its invoice line distribution account is 01-110-6100-0000000. hence we will create an Invoice in Payables and check the accounting entries to reconcile those against our SLA setup. we created an AAD named ANIL_PAYBLES which is attached to Oracle Payables module. This AAD will invoke JLD named ANIL_JLD to build the journal lines when an event takes place against the Payables invoice. Our SLA setup was done for Payables. If you recollect.com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/499-sla-steps-example-subledger-accounting SLA Part 10 . We will also explain the results of the test. we configured SLA for Payables as an example. 13 December 2010 00:00 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF In the SLA articles Part 1 to Part 6.http://apps2fusion. Next we click on Actions button and validate the invoice and create accounting entries. In the SLA articles Part 7 to Part 9.

.

Now check the accounting generated by clicking on menu title Reports||View Accounting as shown in the image below. .

.

. The complete logic is described after this image. Please note that the third segments value of 6100 from Invoice Distribution has been replaced by 7450 from ADR named ANIL_EXPENSE_ADR as shown below.You will notice that the Debit entry of 1000 is charged to 01-110-7450-0000-000 instead of being charged to 01-110-6100-0000-000 in the Invoice Distribution Line of Payables.

.

let us revisit how the credit line in the journal has been built.000. This was done by defining ANIL_LIABILIY_ADR as shown below. Typically Code Combination for the credit/liability accounting entry of the invoice line is picked from Payables Options setup of the operating unit. in SLA we have hard coded the credit account to be 01. In this case the ADR returns the complete CCID because the Output Type radio button is set to Flexfield.000.Now.0000. . However in this case.2220.

.

Hence. . as shown in image below Needless to say that the ANIL_LIABILITY_ADR was attached to the Journal Line Type=ANIL_JLT_CREDIT. the SLA has generated the same Credit entry CCID for the invoice.

.

Please see the Part 1 in this series of articles. That is also known as the bottom up approach. hence all you need to do is to customize those components. Create a copy of this SLAM as shown in the image below.The pre-configured SLA by Oracle will use the accounts generated in respective modules as the source. We will create a SLAM named ANIL_SLAM__STANDARD_ACCRUAL which happens to be the exact copy of SLAM named STANDARD_ACCRUAL. Question . Oracle Cash Management. Now let us take the example for customization of an existing SLA definition pre-seeded by Oracle in R12. where you build the lower level components and then move up the chain to attach your SLA configuration to your Ledger[11i SetOfBook equivalent in R12]. we created components required for the SLA configuration from ground zero. Effectively "garbage in garbage out". The seeded ADR's will in most cases return the very same accounts that are generated in the respective modules. Cash Management. Loans. a SLAM named STANDARD_ACCRUAL is attached to the Ledger [Set Of Book equivalent of 11i ]. Do I really ever need to customize ´Subledger Accountingµ in such cases? Answer. However we are interested in modifying just the Payables piece of this SLAM. In the example that we saw.I can customize the account generator in Procurement and Fixed Assets. All the commonly used rules are already seeded into the SLA config by Oracle. many modules such as Leasing. . In fact. Oracle Receivables. SLA comes pre-configured for all the widely used modules in the EBusiness Suite. Therefore if you have already customized the account generation workflow in the respective module then you do not require customization in SLA. let us first do some questions and answers Question .com/apps-training/r12-functional-documents/500-sla-part-11-customize-of-sla-subledger-accounting SLA Part 11 . The reason is that.If all the respective modules can generate accounting properly then why is SLA really needed? Answer . However you never ever use that approach in real life for modules such as Oracle Payables. Although SLA provides you with ability to override accounting definition. the customizations on the seeded SLA configurations must be kept to bare minimum. As you will notice from the image below.Subledger Accounting Friday. 17 December 2010 07:17 Anil Passi E-mail | Print | PDF We have thus far seen the basic fundamentals and a simplistic scenario of Subledger Accounting. however the main reason for creation of SLA was to implement multiple shadow accountings against ledgers.Steps to Customize of SLA .Well. Before we see the steps for customization of SLA. and the same quality accounts are then sent to General Ledger". In this example. The message from seeded SLA in most cases is ´What you feed to SLA will also be fed into the Oracle General Ledgerµ. the main reason behind creation of SLA itself was to create shadow journals for secondary ledger. Oracle Fixed Assets or Oracle Project Accounting etc.http://apps2fusion. Payables etc are attached to this SLAM. or you can say "quality of the account that goes into SLA.

Note that we still have AAD named "Accrual Basis" attached. . new SLAM will be " ANIL_SLAM__STANDARD_ACCRUAL" Now you have created a new SLAM. end date the AAD assignment of Payables and add a new entry for Payables.e. Click on "Application Accounting Definition" button.Now create new entry for Payables within the copied SLAM. However after we copy the "Accrual Basis" into a custom AAD. In this SLAM. we will then return to this screen in order to replace "Accrual Basis" by custom AAD. i.

click on copy. and this time we will copy the AAD definition named ´Accrual Basisµ to create a new AAD named ANIL_STD_PAYABLES_STD.Now. .

The new AAD will be called ANIL_STD_PAYABLES_STD as shown below. . Click on button labelled Done to complete the Copy operation for the AAD.

Before we customize this AAD. we need to ensure that this AAD has been attached to the custom SLAM that .Now this new AAD has been created.

. as shown in image below. Please note that the Payables entry that is attached to custom AAD named ´Accrual Basisµ has now been end dated. for the custom SLAM. Now.we created in Step 1 of this article. we attach the custom AAD to Payables. for Payables AAD assignment record. back to the SLAM screen.

by clicking on Application Accounting Definition button as per the image above. Follow the instructions as per images below .Now go back to AAD.

Now copy the Journal Line Definition itself. The image below shows how the custom/copied journal line definition will be modified. Our idea here is to attach a custom ADR for the generation of an account.

The name of the copied JLD will appear as below.

Attach the custom ADR as shown below And now attach your custom Journal Line Definition to the custom AAD.

.This completes the cycle for customization of the pre-seeded SLA configuration.
