    Question You can also create establishments that are associated with these expense types

    Hi,

    Below is from an Oracle document.

    You can also create establishments that are associated with these expense types. For example, if the
    expense type is Airfare, you might associate establishments with it such as Air Canada and British
    Airways.
    What does establishment mean? I can't find the correct definition from dictionary.

    Thanks.

    Re: You can also create establishments that are associated with these expense types

    Hi,

    Could it be something like an organization or similar? I found out on an online dictionary

    a business organization, public institution, or household. I hope you find it useful. See you.

    I would presume that they mean a virtual establishment that corresponds to a real-life one.
