The Labor Ledger Pending Entries tab displays pending entries stored in the Labor Ledger. These entries have not yet been processed by the 'Labor Ledger Scrubber'. Note the following points about these Labor Ledger pending entries:
In addition to pending entries with a balance type of 'AC' (Actual), Labor Ledger documents require that two pending entries be created with a balance type of 'A2' (A21 Balances).
The 'AC' entry and one of the 'A2' pending entries have blank fiscal years. The labor scrubber sets these entries to the current fiscal year and period after the document is approved. The other A2 entry is set with a year and period equal to that of the original labor entry being moved.
The Labor Ledger uses these rows to show the change. The A2 entries ensure that the Labor Ledger tracks when a labor charge was incurred originally, even though it may be moved well after the fact.
Note: The Labor Ledger Pending Entries tab doesn't display all fields associated with each pending entry. However, clicking the Labor Ledger Pending Entries lookup opens the Labor Ledger Pending Entry Lookup screen. This screen includes the complete set of data in each row of the Labor Ledger Pending Entry Table. It provides the same view as the Labor Ledger Pending Entries Balance Inquiry screen.
Additional Note: For more information about the Labor Ledger Pending Entries Balance inquiry, see Balance Inquiries.
Labor Ledger entries are consolidated when they are passed to the General Ledger. This consolidation is necessary because the Labor Ledger includes additional fields not found in the General Ledger (Employee ID, Hours, Earn Code, etc.). Labor Ledger entries are consolidated if all of the following fields are identical.
Fiscal Period Code
Chart of Accounts Code
Sub Account Number
Balance Type Code
Sub Object Code
Object Type Code
Document Type Code
Organization Document Number
Organization Reference ID
Reference Document Type Code
Reference Origination Code
