Ease of data entry
SummaryEasier data entry of accounting code combinations
There can be 2 ways to tremendously improve the data entry speed and efficiency of the users while entering segment values, for example GL journal or an AP invoice (Both of these features exist in EBS):
1) Restrict users from proceeding to enter the next segment's value if the current segment value is incorrect:
Let's say there are three segments: Entity, Cost center and Accounts. If a value "99" is entered in the Entity segment which does not exist in the value set the system will allow me to proceed to enter the value for cost center. If an incorrect value is entered for cost center the system allows me to proceed to enter the value for Accounts and so on and so forth. The error only appears at the time of clicking Okay.
