Miscellaneous Transactions - Overview

Types of Miscellaneous Transactions

There are six types:

  • Miscellaneous receipt
  • Miscellaneous issue
  • Account receipt
  • Account issue
  • Account alias receipt
  • Account alias issue

Use of Miscellaneous Transactions
  1. With a miscellaneous transaction you can issue material to or receive material from general ledger accounts in your current organization. 
  2. This allows you to issue material to groups that are not inventory, receiving, or work in process such as a R&D group or an accounting department. 
  3. You can also make manual adjustments to the general ledger by receiving material from one account to inventory, and then issuing that material from inventory to another account.
  4. You can use your user-defined transaction types. You can use this feature to issue items to individuals, departments, or projects; or to issue damaged items to expense accounts such as scrap Inventory.
  5. You can perform the receipts for items that were acquired by means other than a purchase order from a supplier.
  6. You can also use this feature to load all item on-hand quantities when you start implementing Oracle

  1. Hi Dev,
    Can you please also highlight the difference between 'Miscellaneous', 'Account' and 'Account Alias' in terms of what they are meant for and under which circumstance we might use them.

  2. How to map misc. transaction approve by Higher authority ?

  3. No, it can't be as a standard function in Oracle.
    You will need to cutomize this. Else define a new transaction type of Move order and then route it thru approval process.
