Updated: November 19, 2010

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

Click General ledger > Periodic > Journals > Periodic journals. Select a journal and then click Lines.

Use this form to enter transaction lines that you can repeatedly retrieve and post in the daily journal.

Examples of lines that you can enter in periodic journals are recurring periodic payments, such as rent or subscriptions, for which the amount, text, and other information are the same every time that the voucher is posted.

If you have entered lines in a daily journal that you want to use again, you can save the journal as a periodic journal.

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

Tab

Description

Overview

Enter transaction lines that you want to use repeatedly in journals.

The following fields are used differently than the same fields in the daily journal:

  • The Date field contains the posting date for the next transfer to the daily journal. The field is automatically updated when transactions are retrieved to the daily journal so that lines cannot be transferred two times per period. When the field is blank, the line is transferred one time per retrieval, and the posting date is set during retrieval.

  • The Voucher field is internal for the periodic journal. When the line is retrieved, the voucher number sequence in the daily journal is used.
