Troubleshooting the Projects to Receivables Interface
This feature is for anyone using Oracle Projects and Receivables 11.5.10 and beyond. There were several new features introduced to Projects 10.5.10 (Family Pack M), which now require additional configurations for the Receivables interface to work.Here are few quick tipts consolidated from the Metalink notes and user guides to remember what to do
Make sure to open respective accounting periods in Receivables. As Receivables Manager, navigate to Control > Accounting > Open/Close Periods.
You may not be using retention or multi-currency in Project Billing, but you still receive the “Transaction Code: TRA OU Level Retention Accounting flag N… Some transactions are disabled. Please Check auto-accounting setup” error when running the PRC: Interface Invoices to Receivables program (PATTAR).
To resolve the error you need to enable the AutoAccounting Assignments for Unbilled Retention Account and Rounding Account.
As Projects Billing Super User:
Navigate to Setup > AutoAccounting > Assign
Query up function ‘Revenue and Invoice Accounts’
Define Segment Rule Pairings for the Unbilled Retention Account
Define Segment Rule Pairings for the Rounding Account
Make sure to enable the Function Transactions!
Again, you need to do this even if you do not intend to enable retention and multi-currency billing in your Implementation Options.
Sales Credit Type Rejection
You might get a ‘No sales credit type at Implementation or Projec Level’ rejection when running the PRC: Interface Invoices to Receivables program (PATTAR).
In order to resolve this error as Projects Billing Super User:
Navigate to Implementation Options
Select ‘Exchange Rate Type’ in the Currency tab
Select ‘Sales Credit Type’ in the Billing tab
Transaction Source and Transaction Type Errors
The seeded Project Transaction Source and Project Transaction Types might be incomplete. Make sure to review and update these for your setting you defined in the Implementation Options > Billing tab.

As Receivables Manager:

Query up your Transactions Source you defined in the Implementation Options > Billing tab
Make sure the Reference Field Default Value field = ‘interface_header_attribute1′
Make sure the Standard Transaction Type = ‘Projects Invoice’

Also navigate to Transaction Types: Setup > Transactions > Types
Query up ‘Projects Invoice’ transaction type
Make sure the Credit memo Type = ‘Projects Credit Memo’
