Back to R12 – Upgrade Overview
The new centralized bank account model provides a single point for defining and managing internal bank accounts for Oracle Payables, Oracle Receivables, Oracle Payroll, Oracle Cash Management, and Oracle Treasury.
Biggest change in cash management is for the users as many screens are now as OAF forms:
Screens has been converted into OAF forms owned by CE but can still be called from AP:
Other changes are logical data model changes and was long overdue so a welcome change.
- Banks and Branches now managed by Cash Management and data stored in the TCA data model
- Bank Accounts now managed by Cash Management and data is segmented by legal entity so accounts can be shared across organisations
- Payment Document Sequence Numbers is now defined by bank account
Bank and Bank Branches
Banks and branches are now defined in the Oracle Trading Community Architecture (TCA). This makes sense as the organisational model of a bank and its branches is no different from any other business having a party and some sites.
Banks and Bank Branches:
Note this form actually edits a party in TCA.
Bank Branch Addresses
A single legal entity is granted ownership of each internal bank account, and one or more organizations are granted usage rights. In addition bank accounts can be accessed by multiple operating units, but are owned by a single legal entity.
Example of an internal bank account below.
Bank Accounts – Owner and Use
Note the new Bank Account Owner field. Great feature.
Bank Accounts – Account Information
Bank Accounts – Account Controls
Yes – this IS one page. In 11i this was handled by tabs but this concept is not used in R12 OAF.
Bank Accounts – Account Access
This is new as well – where you can control what organisations has what access per account.
Bank Accounts – Create Contact
Payment Document Sequence Numbers
These are now handled by Cash Management at bank account level using a Payment Document Category on the Payment Document. The Payment Document Category is created as usual when defining sequential numbering.
Note the new functionality for managing cheque books.
