Account Structure





Click the Expand  icon by any journal to display the details of that journal including another grid containing the Details, Attachments, and Note tab from the journal. You also have access to the following functions:

Reverse Only: Creates an exact opposite (debits and credits) of the selected journal in Unposted Journals.

Copy Only: Creates an exact copy of the selected journal in Unposted Journals.

Reverse & Copy: Creates both an exact opposite and an exact copy of the selected journal in Unposted Journals.

Journals created using the Reverse Only, Copy Only, or Reverse & Copy procedure are associated with the period the original journal was posted. The journals are available in Manage > Unposted Journals where they can be modified before posting the journals if needed.

View Source Document: Only shows on journals coming from other applications and transferred recurring journals. Click this  to view a PDF of the source document associated with the current entry (e.g., Check Register).

Drill Down: Only shows on journals coming from other applications. Click this  to display the Journal Drill Down window. On the Summary tab the source of the journal is summarized. For example, a journal of a payroll run has the compensations, deductions, and taxes summarized. Click the Expand  icon by an item to see the break down of that item by individual. The Detail tab shows a line for each individual summarizing (for Payroll) the check information. Click the Expand  icon by an individual to show all details. Click Close when finished to return to the previous page.


The Project selection for each detail line can be changed using the drop-down list. These changes are saved automatically.
