Dear Mr. Alfred,

I little bit disagree with your answer that account value is defined that which value is to credited or debited. But sorry to say in my opinion As per Accounting Rules, Account Head are strictly defined that which value should be credited or debited.

I hope you dont mind about my this post

What is inside AutoInvoice
AutoInvoice is a program set consists of 3 main programs. Each program will have unique nature of work to do and they are called internally except Purge program whose execution is derived on the setup otherwise ready to execute stand alone.
Master (RAXMTR)
Import (RAXTRX)
Purge (RAXDEL)
1. Auto Invoice Master program RAXMTR
Selects and marks records in the interface tables to be processed based on the parameters the user entered and then calls the AutoInvoice Import program. Auto Invoice Master program has no report output.
•Gathers statistics, it means it gathers the stats on interface tables and set the stats on certain indices on interface tables
•Marks interface records for processing by marking request_id
•Submits multiple workers for Parallel Processing by creating instances for request.
2. Auto Invoice Import Program Validates the selected record and creates transaction if it passes validation. Any record that fails validation is left in the interface table with an error code. Depending on the setup, related records may be rejected as well. This program has an output file called Auto Invoice Execution report, which you can view by clicking the View Report button in the Requests window.Working of Auto invoice , Validates data, Inserts records, Deletes interface data Only when system option purge set to ‘Y’
3. Auto Invoice Purge Program Deletes records from the interface tables. If you set the Purge Interface Table system option to No in Define System Option window, Auto Invoice does not delete processed records from the interface tables after each run,and we must submit Auto Invoice Purge Program periodically to clean up the interface tables. This program only deletes transaction lines that have been successfully imported.
