JD Edwards Financial Integrity Reports and what they do

JD Edwards provides two main types of Financial Integrity reports, Batch Header reports and General Ledger reports. The Batch Header reports locate problems in the batches and the corresponding detail. The General Ledger (G/L) reports reviews transactions within a Company, Intercompany Settlement, or ; and compares the Account Master F0901 to the Business Unit (BU) Master F0006, Account Balances F0902, and the Account Ledger F0911.

You can also utilize five subsidiary integrity reports; Accounts Payable, Fixed Assets, Accounts Receivable, Inventory and Payroll. These reports compare each subsystem to the General Ledger and will be covered in subsequent blogs in this series.

In addition to integrity reports, beginning with EnterpriseOne (E1) 9.2, some financial integrities can be run in real time to fix issues.

TRANSACTIONS TO BATCH HEADER – INTERACTIVE (G09221, P0072131)

Use the Transactions to Batch Headers program to identify discrepancies between batch records in the F0011 table and its associated transactions in the F0911, F03B11, F03B13, F03B14, F0411, F0413, and F0414 tables. The Transactions to Batch Headers program displays a record count of the number of transaction detail records that have a status difference from the header record. You can review the transaction details by selecting a record to navigate to the applicable program.

This is the interactive version of R007032. This application allows the user to review batches in which the net amount is not zero.

Additionally, the watch list functionality works with each of the interactive applications, listed above, to receive real time notice of any new issues identified.

TYPICAL CAUSES OF JD EDWARDS INTEGRITY ISSUES

There are many reasons why integrity issues can arise within JD Edwards. See below for some of the most common:

  • Power outages or interruptions – causing a temporary stoppage of the process.
  • User interventions / job cancellations / errors – a user starts the process and then cancels it, causing errors.
  • System failures – time outs, program failures, etc. which are causing errors.
  • Out-of-Balance batches – a batch was posted out-of-balance in error (the batch override setting was changed to allow the batch to post out-of-balance).
  • Partial postings – a batch of journal entries is partially posted due to a computer failure or power failure.
  • Incorrect company numbers – the company was changed on a business unit record but the relevant tables were not updated.
  • Missing Batch headers – transaction entries do not have batch headers and the batch cannot be posted.
  • Invalid accounts – an unposted batch contains an invalid account and the batch cannot be posted.
  • Incorrect editing codes – a manual journal entry was entered to an intercompany account (intercompany accounts should be assigned a posting edit code “M” to allow machine generated entries only (doc type AE)).
  • Single-threaded job queues – ensure that you post transactions using a single-threaded job queue (it can cause issues if multiple applications access a record simultaneously).

RECOMMENDED INTEGRITY REPORT RUN SCHEDULE FROM JD EDWARDS

Below is the integrity report order and cadence per the current JD Edwards recommendations.

  1. Companies in Balance (R097001) – Weekly during each month (minimum) and nightly during the 1st through the 6th business day (close)
  2. Intercompany Accounts in balance (R097011) – Twice monthly, 15th and end of the month
  3. Accounts without Business Units (R097041) – Twice monthly, 15th and end of the month
  4. Account Balance without Account Master (R097031) – Twice monthly, 15th and end of the month
  5. Transactions without Account Master (R097021) – Twice monthly, 15th and end of the month
  6. Account Balance to Transactions (R09705) – Twice monthly, 15th and end of the month
  7. Unposted Batches (R007011) – Monthly for batches over 45 days old
  8. Transactions to Batch Headers (R007021) – As needed to investigate out of balance issues
  9. Batch to Detail & Out of Balance (R007031) – As needed to investigate out of balance issues
  10. Batch Out of Balance (R007032) – As needed to investigate out of balance issues
  11. Company by Batch Out of Balance (R09706) – As needed to investigate out of balance issues

PREFERRED ORDER TO RUN INTEGRITY REPORTS

After over 20 years of experience managing JD Edwards financial systems and helping clients to manage their JD Edwards financial systems, I recommend running the integrity reports in the following order. This order has proven invaluable in ensuring issues were identified and resolved quickly and completely.

  1. Transactions to Batch Headers (R007021)
  2. Batch to Detail & Out of Balance (R007031)
  3. Unposted Batches (R007011)
  4. Companies in Balance (R097001)
  5. Company by Batch Out of Balance (R09706)
  6. Batches Out of Balance (R007032)
  7. Intercompany Accounts in Balance (R097011)
  8. Account Balance to Transactions (R09705)
  9. Repost Account Ledger (R099102)
  10. Accounts without Business Units (R097041)
  11. Account Balance without Account Master (R097031)
  12. Transactions without Account Master (R097021)
  13. Foreign Account Balances (R09707)

CONCLUSION

There are two things that need to happen during the month to ensure your files in the general ledger and subledger systems are in balance. The first is to make sure all general ledger transaction files are posted, both in the GL and the subsystem. The second is to make sure that the companies within the trial balance file are balanced. It is recommended to run JD Edwards integrity reports or interactive applications throughout the month to catch any errors before month end, giving you more time to analyze errors and determine the required corrections.

If you have the financials set up correctly, the general ledger file and trial balance should stay in sync and in balance, allowing you to complete efficient, error-free month end closes.
