There are several resources available to help transaction preparers and approvers ensure that asset, liability, owners equity (including fund balance), revenue and expenses are recorded properly in Oracle Financial systems. These same resources can help financial analysts and finance managers interpret financial reports and they can help department managers and finance leaders make decisions about how to record transactions. This page describes resources to help find and interpret object codes.
Anyone with access to Oracle Business Intelligence (OBI) Finance can use the OBI Reference Data and Inquiry Dashboard Expenditure Type and Object Code Search report to pull data by a variety of parameters (including object code begins with, object code description contains, effective date). The report returns a number of attributes including information about object code, Object Code Account Type Code (e.g., Asset, Liability, Revenue), effective dates and iJournals authority level for usage.
For information about OBI, refer to OBI Financial Reporting.
Two comprehensive lists of all active and inactive object codes are also available. The full lists are downloaded from Oracle Financials on a monthly basis and are time stamped with the date the listing was last run:
The above listings include Object Code Account Type Code, Object Code, name/description, long description and financial system usage indicators.
In the event that current object codes do not meet the needs of a department or business unit, new or updated codes may be requested. Refer to Request New or Change Existing Expenditure Type of Object Codes for more information.
