    the Purchasing Expense Account defaulting in the Item Master has been inactivated in the GL. The GL inactivation is valid, however the setup that controls this account default in the Item Master was never changed.
    How can I know how the account is being generated... for ex if the default value is set by the Purchasing Account Generator / Workflow setup or elsewhere?

    Thanks
    Mohan

    hi mohan, sorry but your query is not very clear. What I understand is that you want to know from where the Expense Account for an Item defaults from in the Item Master? Am I right?

    If that's what you are asking, the Expense account defaults from the Expense account defined in the organization parameters screen. Navigation is Oracle Inventory-->Setup-->Organizations-->Parameters

    thank yo so much for your response,

    My question is ,,,i have an existing expense account for an item in item master. The account has been deactivated in GL (so any transaction would not hit that account). Is changing the account manually the only option from inventory setup?

    thanks
    Mohan

    hi Mohan,

    For the items which already have the deactivated Expense account, you will have to manually change them in the Item Master. Since you made the change in Org Parameters, new items when created will have the new Expense account. I am afraid there is no option to automatically update existing Item records. Either you do it manually from front-end or make an update in back-end if you know how.
