There are total of five types of journal entries

1) manual journal - Are the journals entered int he system when noother subsystem exists to create the journals. Basically a manual way of going into the general ledger responsibility and creating a journal via data entry.

2) recurring journal - are the journals that occur periodically.

For ex)
- a journal entry that has to be created for rent expense every month
- a journal entry that has to be created for fixed interest expense paid to the bank every month on the bank loan 
3) allocation journal - are the journals that allocate or distribute cost pools to various accounts based on usage rations. For example) mass allocation journals for a company's rent expense would allocate rent expense across company's departments based on the square foot usage by that department.

4) budget journal - are journals created in budgets portion of journal ledger. these entries basically insert or update budget data.

5) imported journal - these are the journals that have been imported into the oracle general ledger from oracle receivables or oracle payables etc.
