Oralce eBS R12 Financials Cookbook



Last week I was reading a Oracle eBS R12 Financials Cookbook.

This book is written for Oracle functional eBS specialists.


The book describes the most important processes in financials, and how to execute those processes. For example, voiding a payment. The book is showing screen prints of how to do this in R12. Not only is the book using screen pints from R12, but also a step by step explanation is given.

Each process is divided into a few steps. First step is getting ready, next one is 'How to do it...' followed by a 'How it works' and sometimes a 'See also' at the end of each process. So, each process in financials is clearly presented by using screen prints of that process and the steps to follow.


Other important processes that are mentioned in the cookbook are :

- Entering a prepayment

- Defining the chart of accounts

- Defining E-Business Tax

- Paying invoices

- Creating Items (inventory)


more processes are displayed in the cookbook. A must have for everybody who is working with the Oracle E-Business Suite R12.

Interested in this book ? Check http://link.packtpub.com/2QoJty


Also I am able to give away 3 e-copies of this book to anyone who can answer the following eBS question.

'What is the realtionship between the operating unit and the set of books in Oracle eBS ?'


Leave your email and name and a e-copy will be sent to you.

A set of books is a financial reporting entity while an operating unit represents an organization like a sales office, a division, or a department within the reporting entity

Astrid said...

A set of books (SOB) is a financial reporting entity that shares the three Cs: a particular chart of accounts (accounting flexfield structure), functional currency, and financial accounting calendar. When you use General Ledger, you choose a responsibility that specifies a set of books. You then see information only for that set of books.
An operating unit represents an organization that uses any Oracle subledger application, for example, Order Management, Payables. It may be a sales office, a division, or a department. An operating unit is associated with a legal entity. Information is secured by operating unit for these applications. Each user sees information only for their operating unit. Responsibilities are linked to a specific operating unit by the MO: Operating Unit profile option.
When you create an operating unit, you link it to a set of books, in that way,you should be able to:
• Procure products from an operating unit that uses one set of book, but receive them from another operating unit using a different set of books.
• Sell products from an operating unit that uses one set of books, but ship them from another operating unit using a different set of books, automatically recording the appropriate intercompany sales by posting intercompany accounts payable and accounts receivable invoices.

A set of books (SOB) is a financial reporting entity that shares the three Cs: a particular chart of accounts (accounting flexfield structure), functional currency, and financial accounting calendar. The SOB concept is similar in a Multi-Org environment.

In General . the operating unit is under the control of SOB routed via a legal entity

Hello Bas


Here is the answer


With Oracle Applications accounting, distribution, and materials management functions, we define the relationships between inventory organizations, operating units, legal entities, and sets of books to create a multilevel company structure.

Oracle is the most advanced and widely used database of the recent time. Ranging from large industries to entrepreneurs, use Oracle database to store their valuable business transactions in DBF files(Oracle database file). Sometimes, these files get corrupted, denying any access to the valuable data stored in them and for these kind of situations, I have found a tool
Click Here Data Loader for Oracle
which does excellent job of loading data from Excel / CSV to Oracle Front End forms.
I really liked it's HTML Data Loader tool which accurately loads data in Oracle Self Service Forms. have suggested many useful methods to rectify the database corruption issues in various levels. In case, you fail to resolve the problems and unable to access the database thereof, then, use any Oracle recovery utility to safely recover your seemingly lost data back.

Leading companies are using database applications in Manufacturing to reduce cycle times, stream line operations, & oprimise their manufacturing processes, using innovative methods. Business Intelligence Management has been the key word in maintaining a continuous process to improve. For such results, integrated information access allows better decision making in Enterprise environment.

Oracle's real standby database operation was launched in Oracle 7. 3 to offer database redundancy. Inside at a later date types connected with Oracle, that principle may be extended to add in support for the logical standby database, your enhanced function is named Oracle database Defend.

This particular reasoning behind any real stand-in internet site is straightforward -- hold any backup with the information at a 2nd place, send your upgrade logs towards the 2nd internet site as they tend to be loaded, along with use the crooks to your backup with the database. This technique will keep your standby database " Data Loader " driving the main database. In the event the key database internet site fails, your standby database will be popped along with turns into your output database.
