    iExpenses - Account Generation

    Sree Reddy
      Hi Gurus,

      I am creating the project and not project related expenses in i expenses module.Once i enter the all the required data, values for segments like company, department, account and so on .. are cumming default.

      Please let me know whether its cumming from GL Account of Expense report template which is created in AP or it is cumming from project account generator.

      Thanks,
      Sreehari.

          Hi Sreehanri,

          the GL Accounts default from the Expense Report template. However the cost centre is overridden by the cost centre in the default expense account in the employee assignments in HR.

          Thanks and Regards,

              Hi,

              the link between Payables Expense Reports and Projects Module is established through the field "Projects Expenditure Type" in the Expense Report Template. The value of this field is however defined in the Projects Module.
              If you switch responsibility to Projects Module, and navigate to Setup > AutoAccounting >Lookup Sets / Rules / Assign Rules, those are the functions that controls the account codes to be defaulted or picked up by expense reports ....

                  Hi Sreehari,

                  oracle clearly states that Expense reports created from Internet expense module would be of status NEVER VALIDATED and there would be no Distribution records created until the Invoice is VALIDATED.
                  This hints us INVOICE VALIDATION is a separate step ....upon performing INVOICE VALIDATION, you should be able to view the Distribution accounts ....
