There are many places throughout the Accounts Receivable package where you will need to enter a General Ledger account number to designate where some transaction amount is to be recorded. To reduce the number of data entry mistakes, when a user enters an account number it is checked against the A/R Account File to verify that it is a valid account. If the account is not on file, you will be informed of this and allowed to enter another account number.
In all of the examples that are given here, an account number with 5 characters in the main account number, 5 characters in the profit center number and 5 characters in the department number is assumed. However, you may have defined your G/L account number to be of some different format. Entry of the account number throughout Elliott will conform to the format that you have established in the Company Setup.
This is basically a very simple application. All you have to enter is the numbers of all of the accounts you expect to use during A/R processing along with their descriptions.
The Import application will allow a range of accounts from the General Ledger Chart of Accounts file to be imported into the Accounts Receivable Account file. This selection is only if the Elliott General Ledger package is installed.
Select A/R Account File from the pull down A/R Maintenance window. The following screen will then be displayed:
