Transactions are usually recorded in a journal at least once a month. Each transaction is marked with the number of the journal it was recorded in, as well as the line number.

To ensure that the transactions also get a date and time stamp of their entry in the journal, select the Extended ledger journal check box in the General ledger parameters form.

All further transactions will occur in the next journal. It is therefore important to always include all open periods in the journal.

  1. Click General ledger > Periodic > Journals > Journalizing.

  2. Click OK.


To enter a range of vouchers or dates to journalize, click Select. You will usually want to journalize all available transactions.

The journalization procedure creates a journal list, which can be viewed in the Ledger journal form or printed.
