Oracle R12 Resolving Period Close Pending Transactions in Inventory

PURPOSE
There are a variety of reasons for pending transactions. This paper will serve as a guide for troubleshooting and resolving pending transactions preventing an accounting period from being closed.

VIEWING PENDING TRANSACTIONS
You can view the number of pending transactions by navigating to the Inventory Accounting Periods form.

Navigate: Inventory -->Cost -->Accounting Close Cycle -->Inventory Accounting Periods
Put your cursor on the appropriate open accounting period and click on the [Pending] button.
There are three zones titled "Resolution Required", "Resolution Recommended" and "Unprocessed Shipping Transactions".


The Resolution Required zone displays the number of Unprocessed material, Uncosted material/WSM, Pending WIP Costing, Pending WSM interface and

Pending LCM Interface transactions existing in this period. Transactions appearing in this zone must be resolved before the period can be closed.

The Resolution Recommended zone displays the number of Pending Receiving,

Pending Material and Pending Shop Floor Move transactions existing in this period. Transactions appearing in this zone will not prevent closing of the accounting period.

However, once the accounting period is closed, unresolved transactions in this zone cannot be processed because they have a transaction date for a closed period.

The Unprocessed Shipping Transactions zone displays the number of Pending Transactions existing in this period. Transactions appearing in this zone must be resolved before the period can be closed, depending if the Resolution „Required‟ or „Recommended‟ is checked.

Resolution Required Transactions:
"Unprocessed Material" indicate there are unprocessed material transactions in the MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTONS_TEMP table .
"Uncosted Material/WSM" indicates there are transactions in the MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS table with unprocessed accounting entries.
"Pending WIP Costing" transactions indicate there are unprocessed resource and overhead accounting transactions in the WIP_COST_TXN_INTERFACE table.
"Pending WSM interface" indicate there are pending transactions in the WSM_SPLIT_MERGE_TXN_INTERFACE table.
"Pending LCM interface" indicated there are pending transactions in the CST_LC_ADJ_INTERFACE table.

Resolution Recommended Transactions:
"Pending Receiving" transactions indicate there are unprocessed purchasing transactions in the RCV_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE table. These transactions include purchase order receipts and returns for inventory. These transactions are not included in your receiving value if they are not resolved prior to closing the period.
"Pending Material" transactions indicate there are unprocessed material transactions in the MTL_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE table.
"Pending Shop Floor Move" transactions indicate there are unprocessed shop floor move transactions in the WIP_MOVE_TXN_INTERFACE table.

Unprocessed Shipping Transactions
"Pending Transactions" in the Unprocessed Shipping Transactions zone indicate there are transactions in the WSH_DELIVERY_DETAILS table in a status of shipped.

UNPROCESSED MATERIAL TRANSACTIONS
To resolve Unprocessed Material transactions, you need to determine and fix what is preventing a record from being processed through the MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS_TEMP table. Details of transactions can be viewed through the Applications by navigating to the Pending Transactions form.

Resubmitting Uncosted Transactions:
In the Material Transactions Form transactions that are costed in error can be resubmitted by clicking on "Tools, Select All" and then clicking on "Tools, Submit all" or Submit the number of transactions found through the search criteria in the find window. The erred and uncosted transactions can also be resubmitted through the following sqlplus statement:

First shut down the Cost Manger
Update MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS
Set COSTED_FLAG = „N‟, TRANSACTION_GROUP_ID = NULL
Where COSTED_FLAG is not null;

The "Cost Manger" (module CMCTCM) is the manager that will launch the "Material cost transaction worker" (module CMCMCW) for a standard costing environment or the "Actual Cost Worker" (module CMCACW) for an average, fifo,lifo or perpetual costing environment. If the error message in the Material Transaction form is not clear or not available reviewing the log file of the "Cost Worker" may provide more information that could help in resolving the error. Changing the de-bug profile options; MRP:Debug Mode set to "Yes" and CST: Cost update debug level set to "Full" will provide more information in the log when set prior to the Cost Worker processing.

In an Average , FIFO or LIFO costing organization if there is one transaction that is in error the Cost Manager will not launch a Cost Worker to process the uncosted transactions. This is standard functionality because in an Average, FIFO or LIFO costing organization the item cost is recalculated during receiving transactions and if they are not costed in order the item cost would not be correct.


In the Organization Parameter screen under the Costing Information tab there is a field
"Cost Cutoff Date" and a Cost Manager will not launch any Cost Workers past this date.

This is most commonly used to update item cost and all transactions past the cost cutoff date will be transacted at the new cost, once the Cost Cutoff Date is changed.

Pending WIP Costing transactions (Resource and Overhead Transactions)
Resolving Pending WIP Cost transactions is a process of determining and fixing what is preventing a record form being processed through the WIP_COST_TXN_INTERFACE table. Details of pending transactions can be viewed through the applications by navigating to the pending resource transaction form.

WIP > Resource Transactions > Pending Resource Transactions


In the Pending Resource Transaction window you can view, update and resubmit resource transactions that have failed validation and remain in the WIP_COST_TXN_INTERFACE table. You can also resubmit and delete transactions whose concurrent process has failed and have a processing phase of Complete and a process status of Error. There are seven tabs to select the type of information:

Processing, Source, Concurrent Request, Job or Schedule Name, Operation, Resource, Transaction, Comments and Project Information which provide detailed information to help in resolving pending resource transactions.

Erred transactions will have the Transaction Id And Group ID populated and the Status will be "Error". Pending transactions will have the Transaction ID and Group ID fields blank and the Status will be "Pending".

To view error details for failed resource transactions, select the transaction and click on the [Error] button. The Pending Resource Transaction error window appears. Column indicates the name of the column in the resource transaction interface table (WIP_COST_TXN_INTERFACE) THAT FAILED VALIDATION. Message indicates why the transaction failed.

Fields Common to all Tabs:
Transaction ID, Transaction Identifier
Fields in Processing Tab:
Group Id, Transaction group identifier
Phase, Transaction processing phase
Status, Transaction processing status

Fields in Source Tab:
Source Code, Code of the shop floor control system that generated the transaction record (null if created by Oracle Work in Process)
Source Line, Identifier used by source shop floor control system (null if created by Oracle Work in Process)
Created By, Username of person that created the record

Fields in Concurrent Request Tab:
Request ID, Request Id
Phase, Transaction processing phase
Status, Transaction processing status
Message, Concurrent Message

Resubmitting Failed or Pending Resource Transactions
In the Pending Resource Transactions window either check the transaction‟s Resubmit check box to resubmit one record or chose Select All for Resubmit from the Special Menu and selectively deselect individual transaction you do not want to resubmit, save your work. Erred transactions can also be resubmitted via the following SQL statement:

Update WIP_COST_TXN_INTERFACE
Set GROUP_ID = NULL,
TRANSACTION_ID = NULL,
REQUEST_ID = NULL,
PROCESS_STATUS = 1
Where PROCESS_STATUS = 3;

This will resubmit records in PROCESS_STATUS = 3 (Error), nulling out the transaction id, group id and concurrent request id and change the process status to pending.

The "Cost Manager" (short name CMCTCM) is the manager that will launch the "Resource Cost Worker" (short name CMCCTW) or the "Overhead Cost Worker" (short name CMCOCW) to process the resource or resource overhead transactions in the WIP_COST_TXN_INTERFACE table. If the error message in the Pending Resource

Transaction screen widow is not clear reviewing the log file of the "Cost Worker" may provide more information that could help in resolving the error. Changing the de-bug profile options; MRP: Debug Mode set to "Yes" and CST: Cost update debug level set to "Full" will provide more information in the log when set prior to the Worker processing.

Pending WSM interface
To resolve transactions in the WSM interface, you need to determine and fix what is preventing a record from being processed through the WSM_SPLIT_MERGE_TXN_INTERFACE table.

The user inserts rows into WSM_SPLIT_MERGE_TXN_INTERFACE (WSMTI), WSM_STARTING_JOBS_INTERFACE (WSJI), and WSM_RESULTING_JOBS_ INTERFACE (WRJI) tables. Transactions in WSMTI are joined with the transactions in WSJI and WRJI by the HEADER_ID column in these tables.

Errors and Validations:
Whenever any one row errors out within a given group, the PROCESS_STATUS of the entire group is set to ERROR. But only the transactions that actually erred out will have the ERROR_MESSAGE column containing the error message.

Errors and warnings, if any, will be written into the WSM_INTERFACE_ ERRORS table. Appropriate messages will be given in the parent and child interface tables to refer to WSM_INTERFACE_ERRORS table when there is any error.

Resubmitting Pending WSM Interface transactions:
To resubmit the erred transactions for processing, the user has to rectify the error and change the PROCESS_STATUS of the required transactions from 3 (ERROR) to 1 (PENDING). Launching the concurrent process Import WIP Lot

Transactions (Navigation path; Responsibility, Shop Floor Management > Run Request > Import WIP Lot Transactions) will process the records in the WSM_SPLIT_MERGE_TXN_INTERFACE table by Group_id.

Pending LCM Interface Transactions
To resolve pending Landed Cost Management (LCM) transactions you need to determine and fix what is preventing a record from being processed through the

CST_LC_ADJ_INTERFACE table. Details of transactions can be viewed through the Applications by navigating to the Pending Landed Cost Adjustment form.
Cost Responsibility > View Transactions > Pending Landed Cost Adjustments


The Pending Landed Cost Adjustment Transactions window can be used to view pending landed cost adjustment transactions. You can also use this window to resubmit any
erred pending adjustment transactions.

There are three tabs; Processing, Transaction, Source, to view information on the pending records and an Errors button to view the error if the transactions is in error;

Fields common to all tabs;
Transaction Id, Unique landed cost transaction identifier
Fields in the Processing TAB:
Group Id, Landed cost adjustment processor group id
Phase, Process phase: 1-Pending, 2-Validated, 3-Errored
Status, Process status: 1-Pending, 2-Running

Fields in Transaction TAB:
Item, Inventory Item name
Item Description, Inventory Item description
Organization, Destination inventory organization
Transaction Date, Landed cost adjustment transaction date
Prior Landed Cost, Prior landed cost
New Landed Cost, New landed cost
Fields in the Source TAB:
Rcv Transaction, Parent receipt transaction for LCM shipment
PO Number, Purchase order number
PO Line Num, Purchase order line number
Receipt Number, Receipt number that the PO is received on
Receipt Line Number, Receipt line number the PO is received on

Resubmitting Pending Landed Cost Adjustment Transactions
Select the Resubmit checkbox for each erred transaction that you want to resubmit, and click save. You can also select the Resubmit checkboxes for all rows by clicking Tools > Select All for Resubmit.

The Landed Cost Adjustment Processor process the records in the CST_LC_ADJ_INTERFACE table creating Landed Cost Adjustment-Receive, and landed Cost Adjustment-Deliver accounting events and corresponding accounting entries and the average / layer cost update transactions for adjusting the net delivered quantity for LCM shipments in Inventory.

The Cost Manager launches the Landed Cost Adjustment processor every time it runs. The landed Cost Processor is launched conditionally, based on whether there exist transactions in the interface table.

Resolution Recommended Transactions
Pending Receiving Transactions:
Pending Receiving Transactions are transactions that have not processed through the RCV_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE table. These transactions can be viewed and deleted through the „Transaction Status Summary‟ form:

Purchasing > Receiving > Transactions Status Summary
A find window will appear and to query all of the unprocessed transactions for that period select from the field Source Type „All‟, from the Transactions Details tab input the start and completion dates of the period in question and click „Find‟:


Using the Transaction Statuses window, pending transactions can be viewed and deleted. There are four tabs to select: Transactions, Details, Order Information, Outside Services.

The Main Descriptive fields give detailed information on the type of transaction that the cursor is on:
Receipt, Receipt number
Supplier, Source of the receipt

Resolving Pending Receiving Transactions:
In resolving Pending Receiving Transactions the status and quantity received of the actual purchase order of the receiving transaction should be reviewed. If after reviewing the Purchase Order if the status is closed or complete and the purchase order quantity is equal to the quantity received then most likely the Pending Receiving transaction is a duplicate. Duplicate transactions can be deleted through the „Transaction Status Summary‟ screen by clicking on the transaction line and then clicking on the delete icon.

If after reviewing the Purchase Order of the Pending Receiving Transactions it is determined that the transaction should be processed it is recommended that a new receipt is created and processed. The original Pending Receiving Transaction should be deleted through the „Transaction Status Summary‟ screen.

Receiving transactions are process through the RCV_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE table by submitting the „Receiving Transactions Processor‟ (short name RVCTP).

Resubmitting Pending Material Transactions
In the Transaction Interface window, check the Submit option next to the transactions you want to resubmit or choose Resubmit All. If you have many transaction to resubmit, use the Resubmit All button to select all transactions for processing and then selectively deselect individual transaction you do not want to resubmit. Save your work to submit the transactions for processing.

The erred records can also be resubmitted via the following SQL statement:
Update MTL_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE
Set PROCESS_FLAG = 1,
LOCK_FLAG = 2,
TRANSACTION_MODE = 3,
ERROR_CODE = NULL
Where PROCESS_FLAG = 3

The "Process transaction interface" (short name INCTCM) is the manager that will launch the "Inventory transaction worker" (short name INCTCW) to process the transactions in the MTL_TRANSACTIONS_INTERFACE table. If the error message in the Transactions Interface window is not clear reviewing the log file of the "Inventory transactions Worker" may provide more information that could help in resolving the error.

Through the Pending Move Transactions window you can view, update, delete, and resubmit Move transaction records that have failed validation and remain in the Open Move Transaction Interface table (WIP_MOVE_TXN_INTERFACE). You can also resubmit transactions whose concurrent process has failed and have a processing phase of Complete and process status of Error. You can view error messages associated with failed records. Error messages can assist you in updating failed records before resubmission.

There are seven tabs to select information on the move transaction; Processing, Source,

Concurrent Request, Job or Schedule Name, Operations, Transactions and Comments and Scrap Account which provide detailed information to help you resolve pending move transactions.

Fields Common to all Tabs:

Erred transactions will have the Transactions ID and Group ID populated and the Status will be "Error". Pending transactions will have the Transactions ID and Group Id fields blank and the Status will be "Pending".

Resubmitting Failed Move Transactions:
In the Pending Move Transactions window, either check the transaction‟s Resubmit check box to resubmit one record or chose Select All from the Special Menu. Now save your work. The records can also be resubmitted using the following SQL statement:

Update WIP_MOVE_TXN_INTERFACE
Set GROP_ID = NULL,
TRANSACTIONS_ID = NULL,
PROCESS_STATUS = 1
Where TRANSACTION_ID = „&TRANSACTION_ID‟;

When you resubmit a record, the system nulls the Transactions ID, Group ID and changes the processing status to "Pending".

Deleting Pending Move Transactions Records:
To delete pending move transactions, in the Pending Move Transactions window, select the transaction choose Delete from the Edit Menu. You can delete failed records that have a processing status of Error regardless of their processing phase. When you delete transaction records, their corresponding error messages are also deleted.

UNPROCESSED SHIPPING TRANSACTIONS
To resolve unprocessed shipping transactions, you need to determine and fix the shipping transactions that are in a status of shipped in the WSH_DELIVERY_DETAILS table. Details of the Shipping transactions in a status of shipped can be viewed through the application by navigating to the Transaction screen through Order Management and quarrying on the status „Shipped‟ and the Date of period:

Order Management > Shipping > Transactions


The Shipping Transactions window provides a consolidated workbench for three major shipping functions: planning, pick releasing, and ship confirming. It enables you to plan and manage trips, stops, deliveries, delivery lines, and LPNs (containers). There are four tabs to select they type of information: Trips, Stops,

Contents by Delivery, Contents by Line/Lpn.
Transactions that are in a in a status of „Shipped‟ have been shipped confirmed but have not yet been interfaced to Oracle Inventory. These must be processed and resolved before the period is closed. The concurrent process "Order Management Interface" (short name WSHOMIS) and the concurrent process "Inventory Interface –SRS" (short name

WSHINVIS) populate Inventory Interface and Order Management Interface and upon completing successfully the status of the line changes to "Invoice Eligible". These concurrent processes can be submitted through the applications by navigating to:

Order Management > Shipping > Interface > Run
Run the Order Management Interface-SRS first then the Inventory Interface-SRS. These concurrent processes can be submitted by Trip Stop. The Trip Stop of the pending shipping transaction can be found in the Shipping Transactions window under the Stops tab in the Trip column. Reviewing the log file will supply an error message if the concurrent process does not complete successfully.

Conclusion:
The key steps to resolving pending transactions are:
-Locate the transactions
-Find the error message to determine what is preventing the transactions from processing. -Resolve the error
-Resubmit the pending record.

If transactions are pending but not in error the transaction will need to be resubmitted via an SQL statement.
