Updated: August 3, 2012

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

Business enterprises can display accounts in a tree structure by setting up levels, the length, and control for the chart of accounts. Use the Create a ledger account form to complete the following tasks:

  • Create a root account.

  • Create sub accounts.

  • Copy sub accounts.

The Create a ledger account form is available only when the account number format is set up for the Chinese account tree hierarchy.

  1. Click General ledger > Setup > Chart of accounts > Chart of accounts.

  2. Create a new chart of accounts. For more information, see (CHN) Set up the hierarchy structure for the main account.

  3. On the Main accounts FastTab, click New to open the Create a ledger account form.

  4. In the Method field, select Create root account.

  5. In the Ledger account field, enter the ledger account number. The account level is displayed in the Level field. For example, if the source account level is 1, its sub account level is 2. The account number is generated automatically for the sub account, depending on the source account level. Within the sub account level, you can modify the account number generated by the system.

    NoteNote

    For the root account, the account level is always 1.
