Oracle Assets Common Invoice Transfer API

This appendix covers the following topics:


You can use this API if you have a custom interface that makes it difficult to use with the existing interfaces in Oracle Assets. The Common Invoice Transfer API allows you to transfer source lines, streamline the code and prevent code duplication.

Alternate Ledger Currency

If you have set up alternate ledger currency , when you add or modify assets using an Oracle Assets API, the API copies the transactions to the reporting currencies automatically. Invoice rounding issues are avoided by using the API to drive the alternate ledger currency accounting for both the ledger and reporting currencies.

CIP Assets

If you have checked the Allow CIP Assets check box on the Book Controls window of a tax book, when you add CIP assets using the Additions API, the API automatically adds those CIP assets to that tax book at the same time that they are added to the corporate book.

Common Invoice Transfer API Description

The Common Invoice Transfer API procedure is called the FA_INV_XFR_PUB.DO_TRANSFER () procedure. The following table provides the arguments, types, value, and descriptions of the elements of the FA_INV_XFR_PUB.DO_TRANSFER () procedure.

Each argument has a prefix of P, X, or PX. These prefixes mean the following:

Argument Type Value Description
P_API_VERSION NUMBER Internal use only Version of the API in use.
P_INIT_MSG_LIST VARCHAR2(1) FND_API.G_TRUE - Initialize the message stack.
FND_API.G_FALSE - Do not initialize the message stack (Default)
Determines whether the messages stack should be initialized and cleared.
P_COMMIT VARCHAR2(1) FND_API.G_TRUE - Commit automatically.
FND_API.G_FALSE - Do not commit automatically (Default)
Commits the transaction.
P_VALIDATION_LEVEL NUMBER FND_API.G_VALID_ LEVEL_NONE - Low level validation for a transaction.
FND_API.G_VALID_ LEVEL_FULL - High level validation for a transaction (Default).
Asset validation by the API.
FND_API.G_RET_STS_ ERROR - Indicates a failed transaction.
FND_API.G_RET_STS_ UNEXP_ERROR - Indicates an unexpected error.
Determines the API success.
X_MSG_COUNT NUMBER   Number of messages on the message stack.
X_MSG_DATA VARCHAR2(1024)   Message stack.
P_CALLING_FN VARCHAR2(30)   Function that calls the API
PX_SRC_TRANS_REC FA_API_TYPES.TRANS_REC_TYPE   Describes the transaction taking place.
PX_SRC_ASSET_HDR_REC FA_API_TYPES.ASSET_HDR_REC_TYPE   Unique identifiers of the assets.
PX_DEST_TRANS_REC FA_API_TYPES.TRANS_REC_TYPE   Describes the transaction taking place.
PX_DEST_ASSET_HDR_REC FA_API_TYPES.ASSET_HDR_REC_TYPE   Unique identifiers for the assets.
P_INV_TBL FA_API_TYPES. INV_TBL_TYPE   Invoices for the asset.

TRANS_REC Transaction Structure

The TRANS_REC_TYPE transaction structure contains information about the transaction, such as the transaction header ID and the transaction type code. The following table shows type and value information for each argument.

Argument Required / Optional Type Value
TRANSACTION_HEADER_ ID Internal use only NUMBER(15) Optional OUT parameter
TRANSACTION_DATE_ ENTERED Optional DATE Must be similar to the date placed in service, which it defaults to.
TRANSACTION_NAME Optional VARCHAR2(20) Description of the transaction. This field is the Comments field in the Asset Workbench.
MASS_REFERENCE_ID Optional NUMBER(15) Identifies the concurrent request that invokes the transaction if it is part of a mass transaction.
TRANSACTION_SUBTYPE Optional VARCHAR2(9) Additional information about the transaction type.
AMORTIZATION_START_DATE Optional DATE Amortization start date.
DESC_FLEX Optional DESC_FLEX_ REC_ TYPE Descriptive flexfield segments.
WHO_INFO Required STANDARD_ WHO_REC_ TYPE Standard Who columns.

INV_REC Invoice Structure

The INV_REC invoice structure contains invoice information for a single invoice associated with an asset. The INV_TBL is a table of INV_REC_TYPE records. These records contain all invoices that have been applied to the asset. The following table shows type and descriptive information for each argument.

Argument Required / Optional Type Value
FIXED_ASSETS_COST Required NUMBER Cost of asset in Oracle Assets.
SOURCE_LINE_ID Required NUMBER(15) This is the delta amount for each line you wish to transfer. It must be between 0 and the current cost of the line in question.
