The Journal Entries menu allows you to create journal entries and post the entries to the journals and general ledger. A journal entry consists of two or more transaction lines that balance with equal debits and credits. You have the option of batch posting or direct posting the entries. You specified your posting method on the Operating Parameters screen in the Accounting System Setup.
All users begin by entering the journal entries on the journal entry screens. The left side of the menu contains seven options for posting various types of journal entries. An option on the right side of the menu also allows you to post integrated entries from Parts, Service, and Daily Rental. The steps you take after you create the journal entry, however, vary based on whether you chose to post the journals directly to the general ledger and schedules or to batch post.
