Q & A
In release 12, the concept of Set of books has been
enhanced and termed as Ledgers. Ledgers are of
different types, I.e. Primary and Secondary ledgers.
To make working with ledgers more easier, the new
feature called LEDGER SET has been introduced. As
the name suggests it is nothing but a Set or Group of
ledgers. It helps the user in saving time on repetitive
tasks performed on ledgers.
We will learn more about LEDGER SET in further slides.
A Ledger Set can contain any number of ledgers, there is no
specific ceiling proposed so far.
A Ledger Set can include another ledger set within.
A Ledger Set can only have those ledgers which are sharing
the same:
Chart of Accounts
Calendar/Period Type
A Ledger Set can have Primary, Secondary and Reporting
currencies attached to it, but they need to have the same Chart
of Accounts and Calendar/Period Type combination.
A single ledger can be made use of in Multiple Ledger Sets.
One can run concurrent programs or processes for multiple
ledgers easily.
Opening and Closing periods
Generating recurring journals, etc

One can generate reports for multiple ledgers in no time.
Reports relating to consolidation
Financial Statement Generator Reports, etc
In case of a ledger set, which contains more than one
ledger/ledger set in it, user can optionally set a default ledger
for effective usage.
Ledger set can be secured by having a Definition Access Set.

You cannot add ledgers that do not share the same chart of
accounts and Calendar/Period Type to a Ledger Set.

You cannot have a reporting currency which is of type
Balance Level in the Ledger set, even if it shares the same
Chart of Accounts and Calendar/Period Type.
