    Can we use project financials mapping set in procurement transaction account builder?
    Content:

    Hi All,

    Here is the scenario: We already have modified the SLA rules in Project Financial management and to derive one of the segment we are using a mapping set. The input source of the mapping set is 'Project descriptive flexfied 2' at project header.

    Now, we are implementing Procurement where we will create project based purchase orders and accordingly need to derive PO charge account using project attributes in transaction account builder (TAB). Following are my questions:

    1. Can I use the same account rule in TAB that are already defined in Project Financials? I see many of them are available in drop down in TAB PO charge account. However when I select them and tries to build account, it gives error.

    2. Assuming I will have to setup account rules within in Purchasing application to be used in TAB, can I use the same mapping set which we already defined in Project Financials? In TAB also, my requirement is to derive one of the segment using 'Project descriptive flexfied 2' at project header. My observation is that I don't see any mapping set which in not defined within Purchasing application.

    Please clarify for me. Appreciate your help.

    Thanks/Amit

      Please take a look at the my oracle support note.... 

      Why Project DFF Attributes Are Not Available In Project Costing TAB Account Rule? (Doc ID 2210097.1)

      The only accounting sources available for Account Rules with a Segment or Code Combination Rule Type are those sources that have been identified as associated to the Accounting Flexfield (Manage Sources page, Flexfield Title and Flexfield Segment Name columns).
      To use any other source, simply create an Account Rule with Value Set Rule Type and then select the Value Set that is assigned to the desired segment in the Accounting Flexfield.

       

      The TAB_Whitepaper_R13 is also a very useful documentation to assist you with your TAB setup.
