Weekly Review: Correcting Entries that Did Not Start in the GL

Dynamics GP provides a great option for backing out and correcting entries in the GL. But what if the transaction didn't originate in the GL? What if it came from a subledger? Generally, you want to correct the entry back in the module where it was created. However, it is possible to use GP's Correct Journal Entry functionality to reverse and fix a JE that started in the subledger. You just have to turn the functionality on.
To activate the ability to correct GL entries that didn't originate in the GL:

  • Select Tools|Setup|Financial|General Ledger
  • Check the box next to Voiding/Correcting of Subsidiary Transactions
If this box is not checked, GP will display an error message when you try to correct an entry that originated in a subledger.
