Manage Journal Entries


With the transactional app Manage Journal Entries you can analyze your journal entries and create reversals in order to make adjustments. Filtering and selection criteria enable you to quickly find journal entries, for example based on the type or user. The information provided includes the accounts posted, other account assignment objects, and any sales or purchase taxes. You can make reversing entries. Display variants allow you to add or remove fields. You can enter notes or add attachments to explain the posting. Information is shown on any related documents, such as purchase orders or incoming invoices.

Key Features

  • Display journal entries and their line items

  • See information on related documents, such as purchase orders or incoming invoices

  • Make reversing entries

  • Create a new journal entry based on another journal entry

  • Display the amounts in different currencies

  • Display journal entries showing only the line items originally entered or including any clearing items

  • Add attachments and enter notes to explain the reason for a posting

Reversing Entries

To reverse a journal entry, select it and choose Reverse. You can also select multiple journal entries and reverse all of them simultaneously.

If you want to ensure that all journal entries for an intercompany transaction are reversed, select the Process Intercompany Transactions Completely checkbox. This reverses all journal entries involved in the intercompany transaction even if you didn’t select all of the entries.

If you don't select Process Intercompany Transactions Completely, only the journal entries you selected are reversed.

Note Note

Only journal entries created directly within Financial Accounting can be reversed. You cannot reverse journal entries with source documents (such as goods issues or customer invoices) since these originate outside of Financial Accounting. If you select a mixture of entries with and without a source document, only the entries without a source document are reversed.

The Reverse button is grayed out if you select only entries with a source document.
