15.  Enter the Asset Book for the Asset Invoice
16. After completing the above steps save your work.

 

Conditions For Asset Invoice Line Distributions To Be Imported

For the mass additions create process to import an invoice line distribution to Oracle Assets, these specific conditions must be met:
1. The line is charged to an account set up as an Asset account
2. The account is set up for an existing asset category as either the asset clearing account or the CIP clearing account
3. The Track As Asset check box is checked. (It is automatically checked if the account is an Asset account)
4. The invoice is approved
5. The invoice line distribution has performed create accounting in Oracle Payable

Conditions For Expensed Invoice Line Distributions To Be Imported

You can create expensed items from expensed invoice line distributions in Oracle Payables. Oracle Assets does not depreciate or create journal entries for expensed items. You cannot change an expensed item to a capitalized or CIP asset.
1. The create mass additions process imports an expensed line only if:
2. The invoice line distribution is charged to an Expense account
3. Track as Asset is checked
4. The invoice is approved
5. The invoice line distribution has performed create accounting in Oracle Payable

Running the Create Mass Additions For Oracle Assets Program in Payables

You can run Create Mass Additions for Oracle Assets as many times as you like during a period. Each time it sends potential asset invoice line distributions and any associated discount lines to Oracle Assets. Payables ensure that it does not bring over the same line twice.
Attention: Verify that you are creating mass additions for the correct corporate book in Oracle Assets, because you cannot undo the process and resend them to a different book.
1. Open the Submit Request form in Oracle Payables.
2. Choose Mass Additions Create from the Request name list of values.
3. In the Parameters window, choose the corporate book and specify the latest general ledger date which is on, before or after the current date.
4. Select Submit to submit the concurrent request. Oracle Payables automatically runs the Mass Additions Create Report. Review a list of the mass additions created.

Review the log files and print reports after the request is completed. Also review the mass additions in the Prepare Mass Additions form in Oracle Assets.


Review newly created mass addition lines before posting them to Oracle Assets. Enter additional mass addition source, descriptive, and depreciation information in the Mass Additions window. Assign the mass addition to one or more distributions, or change existing distributions, in the Assignments window. If the mass addition is not an asset, or if it was created in error, you can delete it.

You can place a group of mass additions in the POST, ON HOLD, or DELETE queues all at once. You can also perform a split, merge, or cost adjustment on mass additions before you post them. You can continue to review a mass addition until you post it. To review mass additions that have not yet been posted, run the Unposted Mass Additions or Mass Additions Status Report.

Once you have verified that the mass addition is ready to become an asset, change the queue to POST. The next time you Post Mass Additions to Oracle Assets this mass addition becomes an asset. The Mass Additions post program defaults depreciation rules from the asset category, book, and date placed in service. You can override the depreciation rules in the Books window if necessary.

To review a mass addition line choose Mass Additions > Prepare Mass Additions from the Navigator window.

1. Find mass additions with the queue name NEW, ON HOLD, or user–defined hold queue in the Find Mass Additions window.


  1. If you want to find mass additions by Invoice Number, PO Number, or Supplier Number, your search criteria must match exactly, including capitalization.

  1. Choose the mass addition line you want to review, and choose Open.

  1. In the Mass Addition window, optionally enter additional mass addition source, descriptive, and depreciation information.

  1. If you want to assign this mass addition to multiple distributions, or you want to review or change existing distributions, choose the Assignments button.

You can only view the distribution for a merged parent or a merged child one at a time in the Assignments window; however, if you check Show Merged Distributions, Oracle Assets displays all the distributions of both the parent and children.

  1. In the Assignments window, manually enter or change the distribution(s) for the mass addition line. To automatically assign a predefined distribution set to your mass addition line, use the Distribution Set poplist.
  2. Choose Done to save your work and return to the Mass Additions window.
  3. Change the queue name. If you are ready to turn a mass addition line into an asset, change the queue name to POST. While you are processing, you can put a mass addition line in the ON HOLD or a user–defined queue. If you want to delete an unwanted line, assign it to the DELETE queue.
  4. Save your work.

To place a group of mass additions in the POST, ON HOLD, or DELETE queue
Choose Mass Additions > Prepare Mass Additions from the Navigator window.
Use the Find Mass Additions window to query the group of mass additions you want to place in the POST, ON HOLD, or DELETE queue. Oracle Assets displays the mass additions that meet your search criteria in the Mass Additions Summary window.
From the menu, choose Special, Post All, Hold All, or Delete All.

Caution: Oracle Assets places EACH mass addition that meets your search criteria into the queue you specify.

Post All: Oracle Assets checks each mass addition, ensures that it is prepared for posting, and places it in the POST queue. If it encounters a problem with a mass addition, Oracle Assets alerts you with an error message and terminates the Post All process. Note that this mass addition and all other subsequent mass additions are not yet in the POST queue. For example, if you choose to Post All, and Oracle Assets alerts you that a mass addition is incomplete, you can supply the missing information for it in the Mass Additions window, save your work, return to the Mass Additions Summary window, and choose Special, Post All from the menu to resume the process. If you receive an error message and you want to omit a mass addition from the Post All process, you can use Edit, Clear Record from the menu to clear the mass addition from the Mass Additions Summary window. Choose Special, Post All from the menu to resume the process.

Delete All: You may want to review the mass additions you query in the Mass Additions Summary window before you choose Delete All, since this process automatically places each mass addition that meets your search criteria in the DELETE queue.

To add a mass addition line to an existing asset

You can only perform cost adjustments for mass additions in the NEW, ON HOLD, or user–defined hold queues.

Choose Mass Additions > Prepare Mass Additions from the Navigator window.

1. Find the mass addition(s) for this transaction in the Find Mass Additions window.
2. Choose the mass addition line you want to add to an existing asset as a cost adjustment.
3. Choose Add to Asset.
4. Query and choose the asset to which to add the line. You can find assets by Asset Detail, Assignment, Source, and Lease.
5. Choose whether to amortize or expense the adjustment to the existing asset.
6. Check New Category and Description to change the category and description of the existing asset to those of the mass addition you are adding as a cost adjustment.
7. Save your work.
8. Choose Open and change the queue name to POST.

9. Save your work.


To undo an addition to an existing asset

Choose Mass Additions > Prepare Mass Additions from the Navigator window.

1. Find the mass addition(s) for this transaction in the Find Mass Additions window.
2. Choose the cost adjustment you want to undo in the Mass Additions window.
3. Choose Remove from Asset.
4. Save your work.

To merge mass addition lines:

Attention: You can only merge mass additions in the NEW, ON HOLD, or POST queues.
Choose Mass Additions > Prepare Mass Additions from the Navigator window.

1. Find the mass addition(s) for this transaction in the Find Mass Additions window.
2. Choose the mass addition line into which you want to merge other lines (the merged parent).
3. Choose Merge.
4. In the Merge Mass Additions window, query the mass additions line through Query by Example.
5. Choose whether to sum the number of units or keep the original number of units for the line. The Units field shows the total units for the new merged mass addition, depending on the value of the Sum Units check box. The Merged Units field displays the sum of children's units only.
6. If you are merging a multi–distributed mass addition, and you do not check the Sum Units check box, Oracle Assets uses the distribution of the merged parent for the new merged mass addition line. If you check the Sum Units check box, Oracle Assets uses BOTH the merged parent and child distributions for the new merged mass addition line.
7. If you are adjusting the cost of a parent mass addition, and Sum Units is checked, you are cost adjusting the SUM. Otherwise, the adjustment difference is applied to the parent line only.
8. In the Merged Lines block, choose the line(s) you want to merge into the merged parent. If you want to merge all the lines, choose Tool, Merge All from the menu. Oracle Assets assigns the line(s) to the MERGED queue.
Note: If you use the default query or blind query, only the other lines in the same invoice are shown. Use Query – Run with a % in any field to bring up all potential invoice lines for the same book.
9. Save your work.

To undo a merge
Choose Mass Additions > Prepare Mass Additions from the Navigator window.

1. Find the mass addition(s) for this transaction in the Find Mass Additions window.
2. Choose the merged parent(s) you want to undo.
3. Choose Merge.

5. Save your work. Oracle Assets changes the queue name for the unmerged lines to the original queue name before the merge.

Split Mass Additions

Choose Mass Additions > Prepare Mass Additions from the Navigator window.

1. Find the mass addition(s) for this transaction in the Find Mass Additions window.
2. Choose the mass addition line that you want to split.
3. Choose Split. Oracle Assets splits the line into multiple single–unit mass addition lines. Review the new lines in the Mass Additions window.
Note: This also splits any merged children on the line, and keeps them merged into the split child.
Note: If you split a multi–distributed mass addition line, Oracle Assets proportionately divides each split child's unit between all of the parent's distributions.
To undo a previously split mass addition line

1. Choose the split mass addition line you want to undo in the Mass Additions window.
2. Choose Undo  split.

You can undo a split only before posting the split children.


When you post mass additions, Oracle Assets creates assets from your mass additions in the POST queue and adds mass additions in the COST ADJUSTMENT queue to existing assets.

Choose Mass Additions > Post Mass Additions from the Navigator.

1.In the Parameters window, specify the corporate book for which you want to post your mass additions.
2. Choose Submit to submit a concurrent process to post your mass additions to Oracle Assets. When the program completes successfully, Oracle Assets automatically runs the Mass Additions Posting Report, which gives you an audit trail of the processed mass additions.
3. Review the log file and report after the request completes.

Clean Up Mass Additions

Delete unwanted mass addition lines

The Delete Mass Additions program removes mass addition lines in the following queues:
1. Mass additions in the SPLIT queue for which you have already posted the child mass addition lines created by the split
2. Mass additions in the POSTED queue that have already become assets
3. Mass additions in the DELETE queue.

Note: that Oracle Assets does not create a journal entry to clear the clearing account,       since the line does not become an asset

Lines assigned to the DELETE queue do not get journal entries; you must clear them manually.


Deleting Mass Additions from Oracle Assets
To delete mass additions from Oracle Assets Choose Mass Additions > Delete Mass Additions from the Navigator.

1. In the Parameters window, specify the corporate book for which you want to clean up mass additions.
2. Choose Submit to submit a concurrent process to remove the lines. When the program completes successfully, Oracle Assets automatically runs the Mass Additions Delete Report, which gives you an audit trail of the processed mass addition lines.
3. Review the log file and report after the request completes.

To purge the audit trail for deleted mass additions
The Purge Mass Additions from Oracle Assets program removes mass additions from the interim table FA_DELETED_MASS_ADDITIONS.

The items in the interim table are the audit trail from the mass addition lines you marked DELETE and removed using Delete Mass Additions. When you purge the interim table, you lose your audit trail. For security, the Purge Mass Additions from Oracle Assets program can only be accessed through the Fixed Assets Administrator standard responsibility.

To purge the audit trail for deleted mass additions change Responsibilities to Fixed Assets Administrator and Choose Purge > Mass Additions from the Navigator.

1. Enter the Batch Number of the Create Mass Additions batch associated with the deleted mass additions for which you want to purge the audit trail from Oracle Assets. The create batch number is on the Mass Additions window and the Create Mass Additions Report.

3. Review the log file and report after the request completes.


1.2 Handle Returns

You can easily process and track returns using mass additions. For example, you receive an invoice, post it, and create an asset using mass additions. You then discover that the asset is defective and you must return it.

1. Reverse the invoice in Payables, the credit invoice line distribution will be charged to the same asset clearing account.
2. Then you run mass additions to bring over the credit line.
3. Add this line to the existing asset to bring the asset cost to zero.
4. Now you can retire the asset. The asset does not affect your balance sheet, but its audit trail remains intact.

1.3 Changing Financial Information

What you can adjust depends on the time period and the asset type.
