Online Create Accounting

1. Create Draft Accounting:

Draft will create journal entries, which are not final, which means they are not ready to be transferred to GL.

You can see the accounting in xla_ae_headers and xla_ae_lines. But the xla_ae_headers.accounting_entry_status_code is D and also the xla_events.process_status_code is D and event_status_code is U.

You can run create accounting on this transaction again and again, which will delete the old journal entries and create new ones.

You can't transfer these journal entries to GL.

2.Create Final Accounting:

Final will create journal entries, which can be transferred to GL.

You can see the accounting in xla_ae_headers and xla_ae_lines. But the xla_ae_headers.accounting_entry_status_code is F and also the xla_events.process_status_code is P and event_status_code is P.

Once it is finally accounted you can't run create accounting on the particular transaction (specifically on that event).

You can transfer them to GL using Transfer Journal Entries to GL program.

3. Create Final Accounting Post To GL:

Final Post will create journal entries in final mode, transfer them to GL and post them.

You can see the accounting in xla_ae_headers and xla_ae_lines. But the xla_ae_headers.accounting_entry_status_code is F and also the xla_events.process_status_code is P and event_status_code is P.

Once it is finally accounted you can't run create accounting on the particular transaction (specifically on that event).

It will transfer the journal entries to GL using Journal Import and you can find the data in gl_je_headers and gl_je_lines.
Now the xla_ae_headers.transfer_status_code is Y.
And also it will post to gl_balances (gl_je_headers.status is P).
