    Title:
    How to Default accounting flexfield segment values other than constants
    Summary:
    We need to default our company segment value in our accounting flexfield depending on the business unit
    Content:

    Hi,

     

    We need to default our company segment value in our accounting flexfield depending on the business unit. In EBS R11 and R12 we could either enter a short sql statement or make this dependent on a profile option. Now we can either leave it blank or have 1 constant value per legder. We have multiple Business Units under 1 ledger and we also need that due to statutory reasons. We are on Fusion 1.1.7

     

    Regards,

      HI Jan,  please let me know what you find out.  We would also like to know if this is working in FA 11.1.7 or 11.1.8.

      Thanks,

      Patrick

      Hi, this is Neil from Fusion Financials Strategy.

      This feature is not currently supported in Fusion. An alternative would be to configure SLA accounting rules to automatically derive the correct BSV based on the business unit or legal entity.

      Many thanks

      Neil

      But that means re-defining all the seeded SLA accounting rules for something which was standard in R12. Is there really no way of achieving this by a personalisation? Does anybody know if setting a dynamic default is planned in any future release?

      Regards Mathieu
