Hi Sanjay,

The dcoument posted by you is a reaaly good one with full of information. I hope we see more documents from you.

The Published Doc is good. Can you provide the suggested oracle methodology of accounting if you are aware of in the following case.

In manufacturing module, when you added the Resource Labor cost into Production, it creates an accounting entry
Dr Resource Expenses A/c
Cr Resource absorption A/c.

If I do not use Payroll, I can debit Resource absorption account and credit the Salaraies account which will reduce my salary cost which has already been included in my cost of Production

If I am using Payroll, then Payroll also generates an accounting Entry
Dr Salary A/c
Cr Salary payable A/c

So now if you see there are two credits for the same account one as Resource absorption and other coming from payroll as Salary Payables A/c.

I know there is a workaround that instead of debiting the Salary account in Payroll Elements, I can put Resource Absorption account. This will solve the issue.

I would like to know if you have any idea what is the suggested methodolgy by Oracle in this case.

There is no clear explanation in Payroll Userguide nor in MFG User guide. I did posted to Metalink Forum, No response so for.

If you have any idea please let me know
