Click Accounts receivable > Setup > Customer posting profiles.

Use this form to set up the profiles that control the posting of customer transactions to the general ledger.

When you record a customer transaction, you can enter a posting profile that differs from and takes precedence over the posting profiles that are set up for transactions in this form.

You can also associate posting definitions with transaction posting types in the Transaction posting definitions form. Posting definitions control the posting of customer transactions to the general ledger instead of posting profiles. For more information, see About posting profiles and About posting definitions.

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