Convert Legacy Invoice Balances

Distinguish between billed (that were already printed and sent to the clients) and Unbilled legacy invoices (those that were generated in the legacy system, but were not printed and sent out). –These will be billing events and invoices in Oracle Projects. In order to prevent the balances from becoming open AR balances in Receivables, we will need to delete them in Oracle Receivables.

Step 16 (PA): Create legacy invoice balances as Billing Events (Bill Amount is populated).

Step 17 (PA): Generate draft invoices for legacy invoice balances.

Step 18 (PA): Approve and release draft invoices.

Step 19 (PA): Interface legacy project invoices to Oracle Receivables. Run the PRC: Submit Streamline Interface process with the XI: Interface Interfaces to Receivables option.

Step 20 (AR): Delete the legacy project invoices in Oracle Receivables. As Receivables Manager, navigate to the Transactions form. Find, incomplete and delete the legacy project invoices.

Unpaid Legacy AR InvoicesWhat we converted above was a summary of billed customer invoices for each project. Some of them have might already been paid, some have not in Receivables. You will need to convert any unpaid AR invoices as open AR transactions in Oracle Receivables.Unbilled Billable ItemsVerify and reconcile Projects converted Balances with GL, AR, OM –Where required.
