Records are created in the I/M Distribution To G/L File whenever transactions are posted by the following applications: I/M's Post Inventory Transactions, P/O's Post Receivings Transactions, COP's Post Invoices To A/R, and BOMP's Post Production Transactions. The I/M Distribution To G/L Report prints the information from this file to verify exactly which accounts were updated and the amounts that were posted to them.
Sections Of The Report
The Cost Of Goods Sold section of the report shows every change to the company's cost of goods sold account. This section will only print if the Post Cost Of Goods Sold ? flag in COP Setup is set to Y.
The Inventory section of the report shows every change to the company's inventory asset account(s).
The Work In Process section of the report shows changes made to the company's work in process account. This account number is defined in I/M Setup.
The Purchases Adjustments section of the report shows changes made to the company's receivings account(s).
Detail Or Summary Formats
You can print the I/M Distribution To G/L Report in either a detailed or a summary format. If you print the report in detailed format, all distributions, which have occurred during the period you select, will be printed, with detail concerning the source of the transaction, such as the item number, document number and type of transaction which generated the posting.
If you select the summary format, all postings to G/L for the same date for an account will be summarized and printed on one line of the report.
Purging The File
Once you have printed the I/M Distribution To G/L Report and you are satisfied that it is accurate, you can then purge the I/M Distribution File of the transactions, which appeared on the report. Purging the file periodically will prevent it from growing extremely large.
If you are using Elliott's General Ledger package, however, and if you plan to transfer these I/M postings to G/L, do not purge the I/M Distribution File. If you do, you will not be able to transfer the postings to G/L.
Select I/M Distribution To G/L Report from the pull down I/M Reports window. The following screen will then be displayed:
