Form Details


The GLBAL.E2 procedure is used to enter beginning balances for General Ledger account numbers. One record is required for each account number for each fiscal year required. The field which defines the record key is made up of the account number, an asterisk (*) and the fiscal year for which you are entering beginning balances. After filing a record, you may enter only the account number in the next record, and the fiscal year will automatically default, saving data entry time.

Frequency of Use
Generally, this field is used when first implementing the General Ledger module to load starting balances.

The fiscal year must have been defined in the FY.E procedure and the account numbers must have been defined by the GLCHART.E process.
