The Account Setup program is used to create, edit, and maintain the account numbers and descriptions in the General Ledger Account Description File.
The Account Setup program allows users to add new general ledger accounts, set existing general ledger accounts inactive, and to create Account Period Records for each Account Description Record
The Account Setup program allows the user to define the account and sub account number, the account description, account type, and account status for each general ledger account. The program is also used to define the sort value that is used for each account by the system when generating financial statements.
The account numbers and descriptions that are created with the Account Setup program are used by the system in all divisions and departments in which each account is used. The accounts created with the program may not be posted to until account period records are created in each division, department, year and period in which the account is to be used.
