Entering Purchase Order Distributions:Hope it helps
6. Enter the purchasing accounts. When you save your changes in this window, Purchasing uses the Account Generator to automatically create the following accounts for each distribution:
Charge: the account to charge for the cost of this item in the purchasing operating unit
Accrual: the AP accrual account in the purchasing operating unit
Variance: the invoice price variance account in the purchasing operating unit
Destination Charge: the account to charge for the cost of this item in the destination operating unit
Destination Variance: the invoice price variance account in the destination operating unit
Note: The last two accounts are created only if the receiving destination operating unit is different than the purchasing operating unit and there is a transaction flow defined between the two organizations.
If you are using encumbrance control, Purchasing also creates the following account for each distribution:
Budget: the encumbrance budget account
The Account Generator creates these accounts based on predefined rules. See: Using the Account Generator in Oracle Purchasing.
