A/P As Of for the same date differs

I'm comparing an "A/P AS OF", R04423, for July 31, 2016, run on Aug 1, 2016.
to the same report, and "As Of Date" where the date file and report were generated today
but still with an "As Of" date on July 31.

The dollar amounts between the two reports are different.
The total open on the report run on 8/1 is $102,000+ higher
than that I'm running today.

I'm at a loss as to how this can be.

I've tried searching these forums and my oracle support without luck.

Experience has taught me that if I post the question here,
I stand a good chance of finding my answer before someone can reply
"Frosty, you dolt, didn't you think of ..."

However, I'm still throwing the question of "how can this occur" out to the list.
If you have a suggestion, please don't hesitate to "dolt" me
as I'm not seeing the forest due to the trees.

Thanks
Frosty the dolt...

I don't know if you are still looking at this, but, in my organization, we rarely actually close the A/P period on the last day of the month. In our company it would be very possible for something to occur early the next month that would change the previous month. A check could have been cut on August 1st but dated July 31st or something that was on the original report could have been voided before July was actually closed. Those would be my first two guesses for your situation. Also, you don't mention it, but the R04901A might not have been run before the R04423 was run on August 1st. That could have caused a problem as well. The R04901A updates the files that the R04423 run off. Does one or the other report tie to the July 31st G/L balance on your A/P account?
