    Hi ramesh,

    As of my knowledge before Sub Ledger Accounting (SLA) whenever we are doing create accounting at AP or AR then they directly go to General Ledger. But here after implementing SLA concept whenever we are not willing to transfer accounting information to GL then we can divert it to SLA tables and we can modify them there and we can post them. In Payments, Receivables, Reconciliations we can do this. Please refer to the below posts for documents on this SLA topic.
    Regards,
    Bharat G.

    Re: R12 Sub Ledger Accounting (SLA) in Oracle Apps

    Ramesh,

    Sub Ledger Accounting is a beautiful feature which has come a full circle with R12. It was there with the AX patches in R11i. Basically in Release 11i

    a) Every sub ledger module had its own program that needed to be run to send entries to GL.
    b) Having sent the entries to GL , the amount of data in there also varied from module to module which limited the drill down feature significantly.
    c)In R12 a uniform program called create accounting comes into play.The architecture is changed. When a Business event happens and is captured by a transaction in the subledger, this is passed on to SLAM where all the accounting entries are centralized and reside, it is possible to uniformly extract information from different modules.
    d)By ensuring a seamless sync between the subledger and GL, significant savings in time and effort to reconcile has been achieved. Please do look at the different modes you can submit the Create accounting program and the rationale.
    e)Online inquiry is far more detailed compared to the earlier limitations as more subledger information can be viewed seamlessly and in a standard way.
    f)Another important feature should be seen in the 4th C which was introduced in the Ledger. With this it is now possible to maintain different variations of subledger accounting information with different rules thereby catering to minute geographical and statutory needs and giving more flexibility.

    I have uploaded the Oracle student guide for SLAM. Also refer to their usual documents on the same. It is vast but easy to understand once you look at it from a functional and practical perspective.
    Good Luck
