You specify the Check Entity Group at the location Level.
If you create the group with multiple Check Entities within it, you can then assign the group at the location.
Choose Setup > Location and choose the location used for loading the data and update the "Check Entity Group" Field. and save
This is just for the CHECK report (Check step of the workflow), not for import.
Typically you use Accounting Entity Groups to extract data from multiple ledgers having the same CoA, Calendar... by running a single Data Load Rule.
You defined them in "Source Accounting Entity" and then FDMEE will work as follows:
- Create your location.
- Create your Data Load Rule (DLR) for location
- If you assigned an accounting entity in your location definition then you will not be able to select an accounting entity group in the DLR definition
- If you left accounting entity blank, then you will be able to select either a single accounting entity or an accounting entity group in the DLR definition
BTW FDMEE does not enforce that entities belong to the same CoA.
Hope that clarifies.
JeffJon, thanks but I need it for the import so this has to do with Accounting Entity Groups, not Check Entity Group..
Francisco, I left Accounting Enity field blank on the Import Format and Location definitions, but there is no place to select AE nor AEG in the in the DLR definition..
Btw, leaving it blank on the Import Format removes any values to be selected from the Source Segment 1 drop down in the Data Load Mapping section..
You don't have to leave it blank in the Import Format. If you leave it blank in the Location, when you define the Data Load Rule (for the location with EBS as Source System) you will be able to select either a single Accounting Entity or a Accounting Entity Group.
