# Accounting Control Record Entry (ACCT.CONTROL)
Read Time: 1 minute(s)
The ACCT.CONTROL procedure is used to define default information which will be used by the accounting processes (i.e. Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable).
Specifically, the aging days and column headers for the aging reports must be defined. Since the data is not actually stored in a "bucketed" format, when you change the fields in this procedure, the aging reports will change the next time you run them. The last two bucketss (4 and 5) will be summarized into one on the a/r statements due to spacing restrictions.
On the BANK ACCOUNTS tab in this procedure, you can enter in the names and accounts of the banks that will be used in banking transactions. If present, the names and accounts will print on the deposit slips that are generated via CASH.F1 .
Frequency of Use
The entries in this procedure must be loaded prior to using the aging reports. This is generally done as part of setting up the system. The entries may be changed, after that time, as required.
