While preparing for month-end or year-end close you discover batches posted to an incorrect period or year? Or perhaps you find unposted batches for a closed G/L period? Now what?
Here in Global Support, the most common questions/issues around this topic:
“Can we change the G/L date to the current period?” (The answer, by the way, is “no”.)
“The posting report gives a date error and won’t complete.” (The system normally won’t let you post to a closed period.)
Rest assured, there is a way to post these batches and book amounts to the desired periods! Review (and bookmark!) this document: Doc ID 798195.1 - How to Post Transactions to a Prior Period or Prior Year without Affecting the General Ledger for our suggestions. This document contains:
