  AME Approval Rules for Updates to Supplier Master?
Posted by: sadams01 - 02-24-2017, 12:08 AM - Forum: Oracle Financials - Replies (2)

Hi - can anyone tell me if it is possible to set up AME approval rules for updates to the supplier master? For instance, if a user tries to manually "Create Supplier", the new supplier is then routed to the user's supervisor for approval prior to being added to the supplier master. 

I have been stuck on this for some time - any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

  Oracle Payable Open Interface Import
Posted by: Neha Majeed - 01-30-2017, 04:28 PM - Forum: Oracle Financials - No Replies

AP Invoice Interface is used with the creation of payable invoices in the Oracle System through Oracle Payable Open Interface Import. Standard Payable invoices are created in the system for the PO sent across to the supplier and invoice details received for the same.

Payable invoices can be created manually by entering from the Invoice screen but in business having recurring transactions opt for auto invoice creation. This mechanism involves populating the interface tables with the invoice table and run the payables import program to create the invoice.

Table Details:
AP Invoice Interface tables

AP Invoice Base Tables:

Error table:

Users can use the Payables Open Interface Import program to create Payables invoices from invoice data in the Payables Open Interface Tables.  Payables Open Interface Tables need to be populated with invoice data from the following sources:
    • Supplier EDI invoices (ASC X12 810/EDIFACT INVOIC) transferred through Oracle EDI Gateway
    • Invoices from other accounting systems with a custom SQL*Loader program 
    • Credit card transactions you have transferred using the Credit Card Invoice Interface Summary
After the interface tables are populated users need to submit 

  1. The Payables import program to create payables invoices.Enter the report parameters.  In the Source field, select the source name from the list of values. If your records have a Group and you want to import invoices for only that group, enter the Group. This will allow you to import smaller sets of records concurrently for the same source, which will improve your performance. If you use batch control, enter a Batch Name.
Debugging Interface Errors

After the interface program completes invoices will be created in the system. For the records failing the validations no invoices will be created and the records will be errored out in the interface.
Some of the most fatal errors are
  • No supplier or supplier site
  • The invoice number is a duplicate
If the invoice level information is correct, Payables will validate all values at the line level, and the rejections report will list all line level problems. If a distribution is rejected, the whole invoice is rejected.You can correct the data in one of the following ways:

  • Use the Open Interface Invoices window to correct problems directly in the Payables Open Interface tables.
Invoice Validation

Once the Invoices have been created invoice validation needs to be done so that invoices can be processed further to make payments and transfer to GL. For this we need to either manually validate individual invoices from the Invoice Screen or run the Invoice Validation Program. This activity will validate the invoices and allow further processing, In case invoices fail in validation then the invoices will be put on hold . the user can see the hold details by pressing the "HOLDS" button on the invoice screen. at the backend hold details will be stored in the table : ap_invoice_holds

This interface helps us to import vendor invoices into Oracle applications from external systems into Oracle Applications.

Interface tables: 
This is the open interface table for importing AP Invoices from external sources and stores header information about invoices. Invoice data comes from sources including:

  • EDI invoices from suppliers that are loaded through Oracle e-Commerce Gateway
  • Supplier invoices that are transferred through the Oracle XML Gateway
  • Invoices that are loaded using Oracle SQL*Loader
  • Lease invoices from Oracle Property Manager
  • Lease payments from Oracle Assets
  • Credit card transaction data that are loaded using the Credit Card Invoice Interface Summary
  • Expense Report invoices from Oracle Internet Expenses
  • Payment Requests from Receivables
  • Invoices that are entered through the Invoice Gateway.
There is one row for each invoice you import. Oracle Payables application uses this information to create invoice header information when Payables Open Interface program is submitted.
Data in the AP_INVOICES_INTERFACE table used in conjunction with AP_INVOICE_LINES_INTERFACE table to create Payables Invoice, Invoice lines, Distributions and Schedule payments. Data in this table can be viewed and edited using ‘Open Interface Invoices’ window. The Payables Open Interface program validates each record in this interface table selected for import, and if the record contains valid data then the program creates a Payables Invoice.

Important columns: 
INVOICE_ID (Required) : Unique identifier for this invoice within this batch. Same value should be populated in invoice’s lines in the AP_INVOICE_LINES_INTERFACE table to identify the data as belonging to the same invoice.
INVOICE_NUM (Required) :  Enter the invoice number that needs to be assigned to the invoice created in Payables from this record.
INVOICE_TYPE_LOOKUP_CODE (Optional) : Type of invoice: Credit or Standard.
INVOICE DATE (Optional) : Date of the invoice. If you do not enter a value, the system uses the date you submit Payables Open Interface Import as the invoice date.
PO_NUMBER (Optional)  : Purchase order number from PO_HEADERS.SEGMENT1. This column needs to be populated if invoice to be matched with an purchase order.
VENDOR_ID & VENDOR_SITE_ID (Required) : VENDOR_ID is unique identifier for a supplier and VENDOR_SITE_ID is Internal supplier site identifier. Supplier of the invoice to be derived by value in one of the following columns in this table: VENDOR_ID, VENDOR_NUM, VENDOR_NAME, VENDOR_SITE_ID or PO_NUMBER.
VENDOR_NUM & VENDOR_NAME (Optional) : Supplier number and name. You must identify the supplier by entering a value for one of the following columns in this table: VENDOR_ID, VENDOR_NUM, VENDOR_SITE_ID, VENDOR_SITE CODE, or PO_NUMBER.
INVOICE_AMOUNT (Required) : Amount of the invoice.
INVOICE_CURRENCY_CODE (Optional)  : Currency code for the invoice. If you want to create foreign currency invoices, enter a currency code that is different from your functional currency.
EXCHANGE_RATE (Optional) :  This column is required if you enter a foreign currency code in the INVOICE_CURRENCY_CODE column and you enter User as the EXCHANGE_RATE_TYPE.
TERMS_ID (Optional) : Internal identifier for the payment terms.
DESCRIPTION (Optional) : Enter the description that you want to assign to the invoice created from this record.
SOURCE (Required) : Source of the invoice data. If you import EDI invoices from the Oracle EDI Gateway, the source is EDI Gateway. For invoices you import using SQL*Loader, use a QuickCode with the type Source that you have defined in the QuickCodes window in Payables.
This is the lines interface table for the AP Invoice Open Interface and it is used in conjunction with AP_INVOICE_INTERFACE table. AP_INVOICE_LINES_INTERFACE stores information used to create one or more invoice distributions. Note that one row in this table may create, during the import process, more than one invoice distribution.
Important columns: 
INVOICE_ID (Required) :Enter the INVOICE_ID of the corresponding invoice in the AP_INVOICES_INTERFACE table. 
INVOICE_LINE_ID : This value is not required. You can enter a unique number for each invoice line of an invoice.
LINE_NUMBER (Optional) : You can enter a unique number to identify the line.
LINE_TYPE_LOOKUP_CODE (Required) : Enter the lookup code for the type of invoice distribution that you want Payables Open Interface Import to create from this record. The code you enter must be ITEM, TAX, MISCELLANEOUS, or FREIGHT. These lookup codes are stored in the AP_LOOKUP_CODES table.
AMOUNT (Required) : The invoice distribution amount. If you are matching to a purchase order, the AMOUNT = QUANTITY_INVOICED x UNIT PRICE. If the total amount of all the invoice distributions does not equal the amount of the invoice that has the same INVOICE_ID, then Payables Open Interface Import will reject the invoice.

Concurrent program:  
Payables Open Interface Import
Source: Choose the source of the invoices from the list of values. Use EDI Gateway, Credit Card, or a Source type QuickCode you defined in the Payables QuickCodes window.
Group: To limit the import to invoices with a particular Group ID, enter the Group ID. The Group must exactly match the GROUP_ID in the Payables Open Interface tables.
Batch Name: Payables groups the invoices created from the invoices you import and creates an invoice batch with the batch name you enter. You can enter a batch name only if you have enabled the Use Batch Control Payables option, and if you have enabled the Use Batch Control Payables option, you must enter a batch name. If you use a batch name and some invoices are rejected during the import process, you can import the corrected invoices into the same batch if you enter the exact batch name during the subsequent import.
Hold Name: If you want to place all invoices on hold at the time of import, enter an Invoice Hold Reason. You can define your own hold reasons in the Invoice Approvals window.
Hold Reason: Payables displays the Invoice Hold Reason Description.
GL Date: If you want to assign a specific GL Date to all invoices, enter a GL Date. If you do not enter a value here, the system will assign a GL Date based on the GL Date Payables option.
Purge: Enter Yes if you want Payables to delete all successfully imported invoice records that match the Source and Group ID of this import. Payables does not delete any invoice data for which it has not yet created invoices. If you want to purge later, you can use the Payables Open Interface Purge Program.
1] Firstly, let’s get a unique number to be used as INVOICE_ID to the invoice to be imported.  This method ensures that each invoice has a unique INVOICE_ID assignment.
 select ap_invoices_interface_s.nextval from dual;

 2] Then, create records in the Invoice Open Interface tables through SQL queries.

values (
            'This Invoice is created for test purpose',
            'WUFS SUPPLIER',
            'Manual Invoice Entry',

values     (
3] You can go to Payables > Invoices > Entry > Open Interface Invoices to check the details of Invoice and Invoice Lines from the front end. If required you can do any modifications here. Alternatively you can use these forms to put invoice data in AP_INVOICES_INTERFACE and AP_INVOICE_LINES_INTERFACE tables.
4] Go to the front end and run the concurrent program “Payables Open Interface Import”  to submit a request for Invoice Import.

Interface Invoice through Invoice Bench

AP_INTERFACE_REJECTIONS stores information about invoice data from the AP_INVOICES_INTERFACE and AP_INVOICE_LINES_INTERFACE tables which could not be processed by Payables Open Interface Import.


1) Explain the Interface process.
Answer The interface process starts with uploading the legacy data, which is in the form of flat file to the temporary table, and validating the data in the temporary. After that the data to be transferred to the Interface tables. From there by running the Customer Open Interface concurrent program, the data that is in the interface tables are transferred to main tables.

2) What are the various tables involved in AP Interface?

3) What is the program used to import invoices from interface tables?
Answer   - Payables Open Interface Import

4) What the various validation to be done before transferring data from temporary table to interface tables?
Answer The various type of validations are:
Not null validation:

 few columns like 
- Invoice Number, 
- Invoice Date,
- Currency Code etc should not null

Data Type Validation:
- Invoice Amount
- Invoice Date

Business Validation:
- Is the GL date in open period? GL_PERIOD_STATUSES
- Invoice number is not repeating
- Invoice distribution total should match with Invoice header amount

Generation of CCID

5)  What cases do you use Mapping? How did you achieve mapping functionality? Give some examples?

6) How can achieve that either complete files is inserted or complete file is rejected; while inserting into Open Interface tables?

7)  Can you give segment values or CCID while inserted records into AP_INVOICE_LINES_INTERFACE table?

8) Does the records in the Interface table get auto-purged after getting successfully imported into base tables?
Ans) No. We have run Payables Open Interface Purge

9) What are the errors encoutered while Importing Invoices?

Credit Supplier1 1000

Upon Payment 
Debit  Supplier1 1000
Credit FinancingHouse 1000

Debit FinancingHouse 1000
