    Can un-approved transaction be posted during month end closing

    Fred.PJ

      We are a construction company in KL, Malaysia that just started to implement JDE 8.10 and currently under Oracle Maintenance Agreement with one of the certified support & maintenance service provider.

       

      According to our support service provider, they have claimed that it is JDE Enterprise standard system behaviour that an un-approved transaction can be posted during month end closing which we find it illogical and hard to believe.

       

      They told us they have logged the issue to Oracle but yet to receive feedback from Oracle.

       

      Is anyone in the user group have the similar issues and is there any resolution to it like patches or hotfixes?

       

      Regards,

      Fred

          Fred, if not mistaken, the module where you can perform the posting even though the transactions are yet to be approved is from an independent customized program built on top of JD Edwards' platform. Even though it is a customized module but I believe that no matter what program you are in, it should follow the least standard processing rules as set by JD Edwards, however in this case, yes, un-approved transaction can be post in JDE 8.10.

          Seeking valuable advise from anyone in the group to give their recommendation for the solution.

            Thank you Cynerjie for your reply.  Are you staff of Oracle JD Edward or JD Edward Certified Developer or End User?  Sorry to say that we are so surprise that such a well established ERP system is allowing such a silly processing rules.  Is un-approved transaction can be posted in the system, then what is the point of having the approval process in the first place.  Quote possible scenario, during the preparation of a Purchase Order/Invoice, before the document being approved, the un-approval transaction amount has been posted to GL, imagine the severity if the amount is huge.

              Just out of curiosity, why are you implementating 8.10? The latest version is 9.1. I believe that 8.10 is no longer supported by Oracle.
