    Title:
    Invoice approval based on distribution combination derived after create accounting
    Summary:
    Invoice approval based on distribution combination derived after create accounting
    Content:

    Hi All,

    We are deriving the Distribution combination through Project accounting rules. The limitation in Oracle is that we need set up a dummy distribution account/set and then once the create accounting is run , the distribution combination is derived based on the accounting rules. However this does not override the distribution combination at the line level.

    We need to set up the invoice approval based on the cost center segment. Since the invoice distribution is not overwritten by the new combination that is derived , i cannot use the Invoice Distribution.Cost Center Segment in the approval rules.

    Which condition can i use to get the accounting entries specifically the cost center segment created by create accounting and use in the approval rules

     

    Thanks

      Hello,

      Just thinking  - can you not create approval rules on the source of your Cost Center segment?

      Thanks & Regards,

        Hi,

        Yes thats the current alternative, the source is the Project number.

        Was trying to see if there is any another way to get the cost center segment after the Create accounting was run and use it in the approval rules

         

        Thanks
