This option goes through the A/R Open Items File and recalculates the aging and writes it into the Customer Master File.
This is done automatically each night during backup.
When sales or cash are posted in A/R, the aged trial balance in the customer master file is incorrect.
The aged trial balance that is recalculated by this option appears in:
- Customer Account Inquiry - AR Task #27, first screen. (The second screen "age" comes from the A/R Open Items File.
- AR Aged Trial Balance - Task #9, Sub-task #1, 2 and 6.
- Order Entry & Editing - OE Task #1; if aging is allowed to be shown on the first screen of an order (a parameter setting determines this functionality).
NOTE: This task may be performed manually or done automatically when the back-up is run to recalculate the above mentioned aged trial balances.
