How To

The Financial Systems Training team have created a selection of How To documents designed to support trained department users of Oracle Financials and the associated financial procedures.

The How To documents are listed by module, and some are broken down by responsibility. The documents can be followed online or printed off from PDF. We would recommend checking for a new PDF version regularly as the documents are updated online in line with any system changes or implementations.

The How To documents include instructions such as ‘How to Enter a VAT Only Invoice’, ‘Adding Freight to an AR Invoice’ and ‘How to print a range of Purchase Orders’ amongst many others, including Tax and Reporting.

Access to the Online portal for 'How To' helpsheets -  University of Oxford Single Sign On may be required.

Please find below a helpful guide to keeping the How To guides visible when working in Oracle Financials.  This will allow you to complete your work whilst following the instructions provided.

If the guidance you were expecting is not yet available in the How Tos or on the CoSy, or you can't find the answer to your question on the Support Centre website, please contact the Training team via
