PITTSBURGH--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Loading journals into Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS) is complex and cumbersome, as journal data must comply with numerous validation checks and each journal type has its own rules. For quick, efficient batch uploads of journal entries, Journal Wand – an add-in to Microsoft Excel – has been introduced by Excel4apps, a provider of best-in-class Excel-based inquiry and reporting software for use with Oracle, SAP and other applications.
“Previous journal loading processes required an understanding of fields applicable to each journal type or involved tools with weak error messaging that contribute to inefficient processes,” said Dean Jones, Global Vice President, Oracle EBS Solutions, for Excel4apps. “Journal Wand masks these complications with a start-to-end Excel process offering faster problem resolution and useful validation feedback, without reliance on Oracle Web ADI infrastructure. It’s the latest example of how our Wands for Oracle products simplify the user experience.”
With Journal Wand, wizards let Finance teams create and edit custom templates, populate them with journal data, validate data, and upload journals. These customized, shareable templates automatically populate with existing journal data, which is derived from real-time account balances. A bonus for IT departments is that Journal Wand features easy activation and requires minimal support.
Journal Wand also works with the GL Wand reporting tool from Excel4apps, supporting 360-degree “report-analyze-adjust” journal processes from Excel to expedite monthly closes.
