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

Click Inventory management > Setup > Posting > Posting.

Use this form to set up ledger account numbers for the automatic ledger transactions that are generated for receipts and for issue transactions in the inventory.

Set up account numbers as needed on one or more of the tabs in the form. Each tab contains several account types, and for each account type, you must specify which account in your own chart of accounts that you want to use. If you have created an item group in the Item groups form with corresponding posting, that posting automatically appears here and the item group appears as a reference.

You can use either posting profiles or posting definitions to set up the account numbers for offset accounts. Each posting profile is associated with only one offset account. Posting definitions can be associated with multiple offset accounts. For more information, see About fixed asset posting profiles and About posting definitions.
