Redistribution Template for G/L Accounts

A template can be created that will redistribute, via an automatically created Manual GL Entry, the amount in a posted GL account into one or more other GL accounts based on a percentage.   For example, everything for automobile expense is put into one GL account when vouchered in A/P, then it has been decided to redistribute the amount into various departments based on a specified percentage or has been decided to create new, more specific GL accounts and the dollar amount should be redistributed.


Go to: 

  • General Ledger (Module 4)
    • Manual TRX Entry & Editing (Task 1)
      • Automated templates (Sub-task 8)
        • Redistribution Templates Entry & Editing  (Sub-task 1) See below                    
        • Create Manual Entries from Redistribution Templates (Sub-task 2)  See below


Sub-task #1:

the fields on 1st screen --

1. From G/L acct #  -   enter GL account number redistributing FROM (i.e. 701-00-01 Auto/Truck Expense)

2. Template name    -   when ‘creating’ entries, range can be by Template Name

3. To Source           -   is this an AP based entry, GL based, etc.  Informational field

4. To Reference      -   a 30 alphanumeric space for a description.  Informational field



the fields on the 2nd screen are the GL accounts redistributed TO--
