More Information


When you run the Reconcile process, the following behavior occurs:
  • When you run the Reconcile process against the current customer information, Receivables Management verifies the aging periods for each selected customer card against the amounts that are recorded for the transactions of that particular customer. Summary information about outstanding amounts, unpaid finance charges, and current balances is verified. If the amounts do not match, Receivables Management sets the balances as calculated. The Reconcile Customer Balances report displays only the customers whose balances were changed during the process.
  • When you run the Reconcile process against the outstanding document amounts, Receivables Management verifies the transaction balances against the amounts that were applied to the transactions for each customer card in the range. If the calculated transaction balance does not equal the amount on the transaction, Receivables Management sets the balances as calculated. The Outstanding Documents Reconciliation report displays each document that is changed.
