Where’s the cash Account for this Microsoft Dynamics GP Cash Receipt?

Last week I was working at a client’s office helping entering receivables payments in Microsoft Dynamics GP. While entering I noticed that more often than not the cash account did not default. I realized that the customer card file had been set to pull the cash account from the customer instead of the checkbook.

This is something I strongly advise against. If you use Bank Reconciliation to balance your checkbook, you could easily cause your balances to go out of balance if you do not pull the checkbook account from the checkbook ID rather than the customer ID.
In your Customer Maintenance Window, click on the Accounts button and at the top of the Customer Accounts Maintenance window you’ll see this option. (Note that you can look this up in mass using Smart List.)

ALWAYS USE THE GL ACCOUNTS FROM THEIR MASTER RECORDS TO HELP KEEP SUB-MODULES BALANCED TO THE GENERAL LEDGER!

What the Date (in Microsoft Dynamics GP)????

When you void a Microsoft Dynamics GP Payables check or transaction and you just click the box then the void button you’ll be voiding in the GL and in Payables the same date the transaction was originally posted. This may or may not work for you.

What’s up *.dic, Microsoft Dynamics GP Reports.dic that is

The Microsoft Dynamics GP Reports.dic is the file that holds all modifications and new reports that print directly from GP. More often than not, this file is stored on a shared drive so everyone accesses the same file. This saves a lot of commotion if a change to a report is made.

Using Microsoft Dynamics GP Source Documents to identify GL entries

Today I want to talk about identifying journal entries in Microsoft Dynamics GP that come from a particular source. An example of this would be entries that come from your CPA.

Whether the entries are received after a month end financial statement review, end-of-the-year review or after an annual audit you may want to track that these entries come from your CPA rather than your internal team.

Today I want to talk about identifying journal entries in Microsoft Dynamics GP that come from a particular source. An example of this would be entries that come from your CPA.

The easiest way to accomplish this in Microsoft Dynamics GP is to create a new source document. Every journal entry in the general ledger is assigned a source document to identify where this entry originated. For example, if this entry came from payables management module and was an invoice the source document would PMTRX. So let’s create a source document called CPA to identify all transactions that we receive from our CPA.
