Oracle Project Accounting utilizes the POETS coding string (Project, Organization, Expenditure Type, Task, and Source). We have therefore developed the POETS Pointers Reference Guide that lists all possible segment values for the POETS coding string. In addition, we have developed two lists of expenditure types with definitions; one for salary types and another for all other available expenditure types.
