72 Understand User Defined Codes

This chapter contains these topics:

72.1 About User Defined Codes for A/R

Many fields in the Accounts Receivable system accept only user defined codes. For example, when you enter an invoice, you can enter a user defined code to specify the payment instrument. The system does not accept a payment instrument that is not in the user defined list of valid payment instruments.

Each user defined code is either soft-coded or hard-coded. You can customize any user defined code that is soft-coded to accommodate your specific business needs, and you can set up additional ones. You cannot customize a user defined code that is hard-coded.

User defined code types are identified by the system code and the user defined code list. For example, 00/DV represents system 00 and user defined code list DV.

72.2 Which User Defined Codes Are Available for A/R?

The following user defined codes are available:

72.2.1 Document Type Codes

When you enter a transaction, you may specify the document type, such as an invoice or credit memo, or let the system default the document type based on your set up or hard-coded values.

The document type code, document number and company, and G/L date are the link between the Accounts Receivable system and the General Accounting system.

The system maintains two groups of document type codes:

  • Invoice document types

  • All document types

Invoice Document Type Codes (00/DI)

Invoice document types are also known as original documents. Original documents can exist by themselves as a record without a matching document type. All original documents:

  • Represent the initial transaction

  • Stand alone in the system

  • Can be soft-coded; some are hard-coded.

You must set up a code for each type of original document that you use when you enter invoices. When a user defined code is hard-coded, you cannot change it.

Code Description
RI Invoice

The system uses this document as the default when you enter an invoice. This is soft-coded to allow user-defined alternative invoice document types.

RR Recurring Invoice

The system creates this hard-coded document when you enter an invoice to be recycled (copied) for a specified amount, time period, and number of payments.

RM Credit Memo

The system uses this document as the default when you issue a credit to a customer. This is soft-coded to allow user-defined alternative credit memo document types.

RB Chargeback

The system creates this hard-coded document when you enter an invoice for a discrepancy or a disputed amount on an original invoice.

For example, a customer pays 60 of an original 100 invoice amount. You might apply the full 100 to close the invoice and create a chargeback (a new invoice) for the difference of 40.

RF Finance Charge

The system creates this hard-coded document when you enter an invoice to assess interest or finance charges for delinquent invoices and late payments.

RU Unapplied Receipt

The system creates this hard-coded document when you place money in a clearing account until you determine how to apply the payment (that is, which customer accounts to apply it to, and so on).

R1 Draft

The system creates this hard-coded original document when you use draft processing.

NO A/R netting Invoice

The system uses this hard-coded document when reclassifying A/P open transactions to an open receivable.

RW Balance Forward

The system creates this original document when you summarize individual documents to one invoice.


All Document Type Codes (00/DT)

These document types are also known as matching document types The matching document type records cannot exist by themselves; each must match to a corresponding original document record. For example, a receipt is a matching document that must always have a corresponding invoice as the original document. A matching document is hard- coded and has its own type and number.

The system provides the following codes for the matching documents that you use when you enter invoices:

Code Description
RE Void or Charge to Invoice Amount

The system creates an audit trail when you change the amount of a posted invoice or when you void an invoice.

RC Receipt

The system creates this document for a payment when you enter a receipt.

RW Balance Forward

The system creates this matching document when you summarize detailed documents to one invoice. This is the matching document corresponding to each detailed document being summarized..

RO Void Entry

The system creates this document when you void a posted payment.

RA Adjustment

The system creates this document to correct bad debts, minor write-offs, or adjustments.

RQ Chargeback Offset

The system creates this document in conjunction with the RB document when you enter a chargeback invoice.

RS Spread

The system creates this document when you distribute unapplied receipts (an RU document) or a credit memo (an RM document) to an open invoice amount.

RV Non-sufficient Funds

The system creates this document when a bank cannot cover a customer's payment. This reopens the original invoice and voids the corresponding RC document.

R1 Draft

The system creates this matching document when you enter a draft. This is the matching document that corresponds to each original document being paid by the draft.


72.2.2 Payment Status Codes (00/PS)
