Use this to run the contract postings process for the billing process of contracts.

Contract Posting is the process to create the financial transactions for a sales order or project management, if project integration is used. Contract postings can be run for a batch of contracts or a single contract.

CONTRACTS - Before the billings are run, any feedback needs to be done, before the contract posting process has to be done for the billing periods. If the contract posting is completed for the billing period, the Invoices has to be generated from the project invoicing. The system will automatically run the financial transactions to create the journals for the invoicing process. The posted journals will be in Projects (if project integration is ON) or in Sales Orders. Select under Execution Register or Contract Register “Enquiries” button “Financial transactions” and the user will find the posted journals. The posted journals will be in the customer project. The accounting department can now make the decision to generate the Invoice for the customer. The following is the process for generating an invoice in Projects.
