Transaction Batch Sources

Batch sources control the standard transaction type assigned to a transaction and determine whether Receivables will automatically number your transactions and transaction batches. Active transaction batch sources appear as list of values choices in the Transactions, Transactions Summary, and Credit Transactions windows.

You can define two types of transaction batch sources:

You can make a batch source inactive by unchecking the Active check box and then saving your work. Receivables will not display inactive transaction batch sources as list of values choices or let you assign them to your transactions.


   To define a transaction batch source:

Note: Receivables automatically updates the Last Number fields, so you can review this batch source later and see the last transaction number that was generated (note that this number is only an approximation due to caching).

Suggestion: If you use Oracle Inventory and Oracle Order Entry for sales order shipments, you should elect to derive your dates and use the shipment date for your transaction general ledger date. In this way you can ensure that you have booked your revenue and cost to the same accounting period.

If you do not match revenue and cost in the same period, you violate basic GAAP principles, and may distort your profit. In addition, you are unable to run a meaningful Margin Analysis report. This report summarizes your revenue and cost of goods sold transactions by item and customer order and specifies a transaction date range. If your transactions are booked in the wrong period, this report reflects those incorrect transactions. Refer to the Margin Analysis Report in Oracle Cost Management.
