I/M Account File Maintenance

I/M Account File Maintenance

Application Overview

 

There are many places throughout the Inventory Management package where you will need to enter a General Ledger account number to designate where some transaction amount is to be recorded.  In order to ensure that a minimum number of mistakes are made, whenever an account number is entered, it is looked up in the I/M Account File or the G/L Account File to be sure that it really is a valid account. If the account is not on file, you will be informed of this, and then allowed to enter another account number.  The field in I/M Setup, Validate Accounts from I/M or G/L, will determine which package will validate the accounts.

 

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 account number and 5 characters in the department account number is assumed. However, you may have defined your G/L account number to be of some different format. There is no need to worry about this. The programs will all modify the format of the account number entry when the screens are displayed so that they will match what you expect to see.

 

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 I/M proces­sing along with their descriptions.

 

The Import I/M Accounts From G/L application will allow a range of accounts from the General Ledger Account File to be imported into the Inventory Management Account File. This selection appears only if the Elliott General Ledger package is installed.

Entry Field Descriptions

 

Name

Type and Description

1.      Account No

An account number in the standard account number format.

 

Enter the number of the account.  The account number format is specified here as XXXXX‑XXXXX-XXXXX, that is, an account number with 5 characters in the main account number, 5 characters in the profit center account number, and 5 characters in the department number.  If in Company File you specified that the format of your G/L account number was different from this, the program will know to reformat the entry field accordingly.

 

Enter the characters of the main account number and press RETURN.  The hyphen (‑) will be displayed automatically between the main account number and the entry field for the sub account numbers.  Then enter the characters of the sub account numbers, and press RETURN again.
