I may be going down the wrong trail here, but my understanding of how the data flows to M3 is as follows
- During the day, transactions are posted to ONQ using posting codes
- When the revenue extract is created and sent to M3, the posting codes are not used to create the revenue extract. The revenue extract is created using People Soft general ledger accounts There should be attached to every posting code a people soft General Ledger code. When the report is generated to be sent to M3, these people soft general ledger codes are used to create the report. Normally this process works very well for the Rooms Department. Based on my experiences, the F&B departments are problematic. It depends on who set up your ONQ posting codes for F&B. In most cases, I have seen multiple posting codes set up with the same people soft general ledger account which results in the revenue extract that is sent to M3 combining all the posting codes that have the same people soft general ledger into one amount. Unless you are using the Revenue Extract report to populate a 3rd party accounting software or are using Hilton's People Soft software, these codes do not get used as far as I know. So the person setting up the codes, probably just uses a people soft account that they are familiar with to assign to every posting code.
If you have access to ONQ Operations Audit thourh the Hilton Lobby, you can look at the PMS mapping for the hotel which can be sorted by the People Soft general ledger account field. If you see multiple posting codes going to the same People Soft general ledger account, it could be a sign of a problem. Sometimes it is okay to have multiple items going to one people soft account if you want the amount to come over as one number to M3.
To correct this issue, the posting codes will have to mapped to a different people soft general ledger accounts. This mapping will have to be changed by someone physically at the hotel. As far as I know this mapping cannot be changed remotely. When looking at the People Soft general ledger codes, pay attention to the suffix of the account. This suffix could be USD (us dollars), RM(room nights), COV(covers),etc.. For example, account 12345USD could be Dinner Revenue and 12345COV could be Dinner Covers.
If you are having to make numerous changes to the mapping, you may want to call Hilton ONQ support and request that they suspend the one use authorization code (this may not be the correct terminology) that is required to change the mapping for a period of time( the max amount of time maybe 2 hours) If you do not suspend this one use code, every time you change the mapping on a PMS code, you will have to create a new one use code using ONQ's one use code generator which is a pain.
Hope this information helps you.
