Performing Miscellaneous Transactions
With a miscellaneous transaction you can issue material to or receive material from general ledger accounts in your current organization. This allows you to issue material to groups that are not inventory, receiving, or work in process such as a research and development group or an accounting department. You can also make manual adjustments to the general ledger by receiving material from one account to inventory, and then issuing that material from inventory to another account.
You can use your user-defined transaction types and sources to further classify and name your transactions. You can use this feature to issue items to individuals, departments, or projects; or to issue damaged items to expense accounts such as scrap. You can perform the receipts for items that were acquired by means other than a purchase order from a supplier. You can also use this feature to load all item on-hand quantities when you start implementing Oracle Inventory.
To enter a miscellaneous transaction:
2. Enter the date and time of entry for the transaction.
3. Enter a miscellaneous transaction type for the transfer. This can either be a predefined system type or one you defined. See: Defining Transaction Types.
5. Optionally, enter the general ledger account against which the material is issued or received.
6. Optionally, indicate if inventory information should be defaulted from the serial number.
To enter the item to transfer:
1. Choose Transaction Lines in the Miscellaneous Transaction window. The Transaction Lines Detail folder window appears.
2. Enter an inventory item to issue or receive. If you choose to default inventory information from the serial number, enter a serial number.
3. Enter the revision for the item to issue or receive. You must enter a value in this field if the item is under revision control.
4. Enter a subinventory. For an issue transaction, you cannot enter a subinventory that does not have Quantity Tracking turned on.
5. Enter a locator. You must enter a value here if you established locator control for the item.
6. Optionally, enter a lot number for the item. If you want to enter multiple lot numbers, complete the remaining steps, then choose the Lot/Serial button to display the Lot Entry window.
7. Enter a unit of measure. This can be the primary unit of measure (the default) or any valid alternate unit of measure.
If you enter an alternate unit of measure, Oracle Inventory issues the quantity you specify in this unit of measure. Oracle Inventory also converts the quantity to the primary unit of measure so that it can correctly update the on-hand quantity.
8. Enter the quantity of the inventory item to issue or receive, based on the unit of measure you specified.
9. If using average costing, enter the unit cost of the item to receive or issue. Leave this field blank to use the system average cost at the time of the transaction.
10. Optionally, enter a reason code for the transaction. For example, you can use reason codes to allow you to mark exceptional charges to support quality data collection.
11. Optionally, enter up to 240 characters of free text that describe the transaction.
12. Enter a general ledger account for the item to use in the transaction. You can change this account only for miscellaneous issue/receipt or user-defined transaction types.
