BUG #: 50897 (Content Maintenance)

INTRODUCTION

This article describes the process that Microsoft Dynamics SL uses to determine default GL account numbers and default GL subaccount numbers. These numbers appear in the time entry screens that are contained in the following modules:

  • Advanced Payroll

  • Payroll

  • Time and Expense for Projects

More Information

To determine the default GL account number and the default GL subaccount number for a time entry screen, Microsoft Dynamics SL uses a predetermined search order of the account numbers and of the subaccount numbers that are contained in various maintenance screens. The program searches until it locates the first non-blank value.

The following tables are arranged by module. Each module name is followed by the relevant time entry screens. The tables list the search order that Microsoft Dynamics SL uses to determine the default GL account and GL subaccount numbers for the indicated time entry screens.
