    Note Note

    You can credit more than one G/L account in the same check for payment as long as the amounts related to credited accounts are of the same currency (any of the following combinations is allowed: All Currencies + Foreign Currency accounts, if the amounts are in the specific foreign currency or All Currencies + Local Currency accounts if the amounts are in local currencies)

    End of the note.
