Click General ledger > Setup > Posting > Accounts for automatic transactions.

Use this form to specify accounts for automatic transactions, such as rounding differences, that are not set up elsewhere.

The first time that you set up the accounts for automatic transactions, click Create default types. Entries are automatically created in the Posting type field. You can then select the corresponding main accounts and manually set up other accounts for automatic transactions.

If you clicked Create default types, nine default posting types were created in the Posting type field.

When you select the relevant main account, the name of the account is inserted.


If you want to interrupt updates with a message when the error account is used in the posting process, select the Interrupt in case of error account check box in the General ledger parameters form.

After you have automatically created accounts for automatic transactions, you can also set up other default posting types.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.
