 Assigning G/L Accounts to Account Symbols

You can assign the G/L account to the account number in the following ways:

  • You can enter it in full:

Account symbol

G/L account

BANK

0000113100

  • You can enter the account number generically, i.e. by entering a series of "+" signs:

Account symbol

G/L account

BANK

++++++++++

If you enter the number generically, the system replaces these plus signs with the G/L account number you maintained for your house bank (for example, 0000113100).

  • You can enter the part of the account number and complete the field with "+" signs:

Account symbol

G/L account

BANK

++++++++02

In this case too the system replaces these plus signs with the G/L account number you maintained for your house bank, but the non-generic part of your entry remains in the field. Again, taking the example of account 0000113100 (as defined in the house bank master), the two end digits of the number are replaced by "02". This entry would trigger a posting to account 00001131 02 .

Note Note

Note that, when making generic entries (i.e. using "+" signs), the system expects a 10-character entry for an account. If you are using account numbers shorter than 10 characters, you must make your entries right-justified.

End of the note.

You can test the postings that your entries will trigger by selecting Start of the navigation path Goto Next navigation stepSelect simulation End of the navigation path from the maintenance screen for the posting specifications.
