Choose Formulas.
Enter  the  Name,  Category,  and  Description  of  the  MassAllocation  formula.
Categories help you group journal         entries  in  a  convenient  manner  for  reporting  and analysis. (Enter the expenditure which is being allocated as the Journal Name : For eg. Interest Allocation).
Choose whether to Allocate Balances From the full balance or from a single entered currency.
If you choose Full Balance, General Ledger allocates your entire account balance, which is comprised of amounts entered in your functional currency, as well as amounts converted to your functional currency from a foreign currency. The generated MassAllocation will be a functional currency journal entry.
If you choose Single Entered Currency, General Ledger allocates the portion of your account balance entered in the Currency you specify. The generated MassAllocation will be a journal entry in the specified currency.
If you are allocating encumbrance balances, you must allocate the full balance. You cannot allocate foreign currency encumbrances.
Choose Full Cost Pool Allocation to have any rounding difference resulting from the
MassAllocation computation added to the cost pool with the largest relative balance. If you do not choose this option, any rounding differences will remain in the original account.

Enter the formula lines.
Save your work.
Choose Validate All to validate the batch, as well as all previously unvalidated batches. If you do not validate all batches, General Ledger will ask if you want to validate all unvalidated batches when you close the window.
Check the MassAllocation batch validation status to confirm the batch passed validation.

Entering of Mass Allocation Formulas
The Cost to be allocated using the Mass Allocation feature of Oracle General Ledger will be based on a standard formula as given below
Share of Cost      = Total Cost to be Allocated (A) X [Usage Factor (B) / Total Usage (C)]
The share of Cost will be transferred to the range of accounts designated as TARGET Accounts and the balancing or offset portion will be transferred to the account designated as OFFSET account. The Formula lines for Mass Allocation are described as below
A X   [B/C] with the impact going to the Target (T) accounts and net impact to Offset (O) account

Any combination of Fixed Amount or Account balances can be used in the formula lines. The method of entering Formula Lines are given below

Enter the account for the A, B, or C line of your formula. Enter accounts with parent segment values to create a formula that references accounts with the corresponding child segment values.When you enter an account, General Ledger ensures that segment values are valid and enabled.
Assign a segment Type for each account segment. The combination of parent/child segment values and types tells General Ledger which related accounts are affected or used by that portion of the formula.
You can assign one the following segment types to each segment:
Looping (L): Assign this type to a parent segment value to include each child value assigned to the parent value in the formula. The allocation program runs each formula once for each corresponding child segment value. You can loop only on parent values.
Summing (S): Assign this type to a parent segment value to sum the account balances of all the child segment values assigned to a parent. For example, if you enter a parent that has five child values, the allocation program adds the account balances of the five child accounts and uses the sum in each MassAllocation formula. You can sum only on parent values.
Constant (C): Assign this type to a child segment value to use the detail account balance associated with the child. You can use this type with a parent segment value only if there is a summary account associated with the        parent.
Note: To use summary accounts in a mass allocation formula, all segments in the formula must be assigned a segment type of Constant.
Enter the Amount Type you want to use such as Period-to-date, Quarter-to-date, Year-to-date, Project-to-date
•Enter the Relative Period for the account balance you want to use:
Current Period
Previous Period
Year Ago, Same Period

Enter the account Balance Type to use for the formula line. If you enter the Budget balance type, you must also enter a Budget name. If you enter the Encumbrance balance type, you must also enter an Encumbrance Type.
Once you have entered your A, B, and C formula lines, enter the Target and Offset accounts.

Enter an account in the Target line to specify the destination accounts for your allocations. When you enter a target account, be sure that it conforms to the allocation formula rules for target accounts. Be sure to also follow the account segment cross-validation rules.

The validation program does not check for account cross-validation rule violations. If you enter a target account that violates a cross-validation rule General Ledger creates invalid journal lines when you generate the formula. You must correct the resulting journals in the Enter Journals window before you post

Enter an account in the Offset line to specify the account to use for the offsetting debit or credit from your allocation.
Save your work and Validate the Formula.

Validation of Mass Allocation Formulas
To validate all unvalidated Mass Allocation and Mass Budget batches:
Navigate to the Define MassAllocation or Define MassBudgets window.
Choose Validate All. General Ledger automatically starts a concurrent request to run the MassAllocation Validation program.
Check the validation status after the concurrent request completes.
To review the batch validation status:
Navigate to the Define MassAllocation or Define MassBudgets window.
Query the name of the allocation batch you want to check.
Review the batch Status. Your batch will have one of the following statuses:
Valid:  General Ledger has validated your batch. You can use your formula to generate journals.
Not Validated: General Ledger has not yet run the MassAllocation/MassBudgeting Validation program to check your batch. This program must validate this batch before you can generate it.
In Process: General Ledger has started the MassAllocation/MassBudgeting Validation program to check your batch. If you want to make changes to this batch, you must wait until the program completes.
Error: General Ledger found definition errors in your batch.
If your batch fails validation, use the Request ID to locate the problems on the MassAllocations/MassBudgeting Validation Report. Correct your errors in the Define MassAllocations or Define MassBudgets window. When you save your changes and close the window, you can validate all unvalidated batches.

Generation of Mass Allocation Formulas
Prerequisites for Generation of Allocation Journal

If you choose to revalue a single currency, enter the Currency to use for the revaluation. If your set of book's functional currency has a currency derivation of other, you can only enter a
currency that also has a currency derivation of other. If you choose to revalue all currencies, General Ledger revalues each foreign currency balance only if a period-end rate exists for
that currency and accounting period. If you choose to revalue a single currency, you may need to enter the Rate to use for the revaluation, depending on whether your set of book's functional currency has a currency derivation of Other, EURO, EMU, or Interim EMU
Enter an Account Low and High to revalue accounts that fall within that range. Repeat this step to enter multiple ranges. System defaults the range of accounts that were included in the previous revaluation submission. (This is achieved with the help of a profile option)
Choose Revalue. General Ledger launches a concurrent process to revalue your account balances.
Use the Revaluation Execution Report to review the status of your account revaluation. General Ledger automatically generates this report when you run revaluation.
Review and Post the revaluation journal batch. You can open the Journal by querying on the Journals with Source/Category as Revaluation.

CHAPTER 07: PERIOD CLOSING
Period Closing - General Ledger
The status of a General Ledger Period (also called as an Accounting Period) controls the processing of various transactions in the books of accounts. The accounting Periods can have one of the following status.
Open:          Journal entry and posting is allowed an a period with Open status.
Closed: Journal entry and posting activities are not allowed. However, a closed period can be re-opened to process any further transactions.

Permanently Closed: Journal entry and posting activities are not allowed. A Permanently Closed period cannot be re-opened.
Never Opened: Journal entry and posting are not allowed. General Ledger assigns this status to any period proceeding the first period ever opened in your calendar, or to any period that has been defined, but is not yet future-enterable. This period status cannot be changed manually.

Future-Entry: In a Future Entry period, Journal entry is allowed, but posting is not allowed. This period is not yet open, but falls within the range of future-enterable periods designated in the Set of Books window. This period status cannot be changed manually without using the concurrent process to open the period.

To open a new accounting period:
Navigate to the Open and Close Periods window. (Navigation: Setup  Open/Close)
General Ledger displays the Latest Open accounting period. Note that while a period may be the most recently opened accounting period, this period may have a current status of closed.
Choose Open Next Period. General Ledger calculates the ending account balances for the current period, and launches a concurrent process to open the next period. The current period remains Open.
