    Hello, I need to implement account alliases in Purchasing. When entering in the distribution form of the purchase order I want to choose the account from a list of aliases and not to have all the accounting flexfield segments. I know that this is possible but I dont know how to do it. I have already set up alias in GL and in INV but the Alias list is still not appearing in the distribution forms of the Purchase order.
    Can anybody help me pleaaaseeee!!!
    Thanks,
    Cecilia - from Argentina

    Your account alias, if setup correctly should work in your PO distribution form too.

    The steps to setup are:

    1. Navigate to the Account Aliases window.
    2. Enter a unique account alias name derived from concatenated segments of the account alias name key flexfield.
    3. Enter the general ledger account to which you charge all transactions that use this account alias. You can change this account only if the account alias has not been referenced.
    4. Enter the effective date on which the account alias is enabled. Date must be greater than or equal to the current date.
    5. Save.

    Also check if the particular Account alias you are trying to use is not inactive.

    Thank you, I have resolved the issue. A profile was missing.

    The profile missing was: 'Flexfields: Shorthand Entry'
