    Title:
    Basic GL question from new Cloud User re Key Flexfield Values
    Content:

    Hi,

    This query relates to 19C (11.13.19.07.0) and also 19B (11.13.19.04.0).

    It's more of a how to do something in Cloud query, rather than there being an error or problem.

    In R12 I was familiar with going to Setup > Financials > Flexfields > Key > Values and from there, searching via e.g.

    • Application: General Ledger
    • Title: Accounting Flexfield
    • Structure: Accounting Flexfield
    • Segment: Account

    From there, we could add new Account codes, and define their position in the hierarchy.

    How do we achieve the same in Cloud?

    Is it all done via Setup and Maintenance?

    Sorry for asking basic questions - I know I could wade through the training and many 100s of pages of documentation, but I thought I'd ask here to see if there is a quicker way.

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Jim

      Yes, Setup & Maintenance area.

      You can search directly for the task Manage Chart of Accounts Value Set Values or navigate there by selecting Financials on the top left, scrolling down to Financial Reporting Structures, then selecting it from the list on the right.

      Hi Jim,

      You can refer to Kevin's comment for adding new account values, for Hierarchy, please use manage Manage Account Hierarchies. Once you update the hierarchy you will need to set it active and do the online audit. Then publish it using publish account Hierarchies. Both Manage Account Hierarchies & publish account Hierarchies can be accessed from setup & maintenance area.

      Regards,

      Pratik

      Hi Jim,

      For doing quickly both actions referenced above, you may want to use this spreadsheet. Explanations of how to use it is included in the first tab: https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/financials/19d/oefbf/general-ledger.html#importsegmentvaluesandhierarchies-3003

      Thanks

      Yes, Setup & Maintenance area.

      You can search directly for the task Manage Chart of Accounts Value Set Values or navigate there by selecting Financials on the top left, scrolling down to Financial Reporting Structures, then selecting it from the list on the right.

      Create a Structure Instance and Finally deploy it.
