Analytical Accounting and Intercompany compatibility in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Applies to: Dynamics GP 2010Dynamics GP 2013Dynamics GP 2016

INTRODUCTION


 
Analytical Accounting does not completely integrate with Intercompany in Microsoft Dynamics GP.  The GL batch is created, byt the AA setup may not be the same in the destination company as it is in the originating company.  Therefore, you will need to make AA dimension assignments in both the originating and destination companies separately.

After you post a batch of intercompany transactions in the originating company, the assignment for Analytical Accounting data will be not carried over to the destination company.  You must access the GL batch in the destination company and manually add the AA data to the transaction. 

To post intercompany transactions that contain Analytical Accounting assignments, follow these steps:
 
  1. Create an intercompany batch that contains assignments of Analytical Accounting transaction dimension codes in the originating company.  
  2. Post the batch in the originating company.
  3. In the destination company, click on the Transactions menu, point to Financial, and then click General
  4. Open the batch that was created in the destination company, and drill into the transactions in the batch.
  5. Click to select an account number in the Distributions window.
  6. On the Extras menu, point to Additional, and then click Analytical Transaction to open the Analytical General Transaction Entry window.
  7. Make the appropriate assignments for Analytical Accounting transaction dimension codes for the destination company.
  8. Save the batch in the Analytical General Transaction Entry window.
  9. Post the batch in the destination company.
Note You must follow these steps even if Analytical Accounting transaction dimension codes are set up identically for both companies.
