[Oracle] Oracle PeopleSoft General Ledger data model and data flow


Oracle PeopleSoft General Ledger data model and data flow

The PeopleSoft General Ledger is a module in the Oracle PeopleSoft Enterprise suite of applications. This post gives a brief overview of the data flow and data model of PeopleSoft General Ledger.  General Ledger applications are generally a central point for key financial reporting and this is also the case for PeopleSoft applications.

Oracle Business Intelligence Applications (OBIA) offers pre-built integration with Oracle Peoplesoft Enterprise, and the tables here are some of the source tables for Oracle Business Intelligence Application Financial Analytics.

Data is brought into the GL Journal Header (JRNL_HEADER) and Journal Lines (JRNL_LN) tables via a number of methods – spreadsheet template import, flat-file import, or via a load process from other PeopleSoft modules.  There are multiple Journal Lines for each Journal Header.

The Journals are edited, and when valid, they can be Posted.  The Posting creates records in the Ledger table (LEDGER).  Ledger data is a common source for reporting – for example, P&L and Balance Sheet reporting will be done against Ledger data.
Some supporting tables for the GL module are:

GL_ACCOUNT_TBL:  contains the value and description of Account values
PRODUCT:   contains the value and description of Product values
DEPT_TBL: contains the value and description of Department values
BUS_UNIT_TBL_GL:  contains the value and description of Business Unit values
ACCT_TYPE_TBL:  contains the descriptions of Account Types – Asset, Liability, Equity, Expense, Revenue
