(BRA) Set up a default description for a consolidated legal entity [AX 2012]

Updated: June 18, 2012

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

Use the Default descriptions form to set up transaction text for transactions. When you post a transaction, the transaction type is identified by using the default description and the transaction text that corresponds to the default description is posted to the ledger. The transaction text is printed on the day book and analytical ledger reports. You must use the %6 variable as part of the transaction text.

When you consolidate transactions and you have selected the Transfer transactions only check box in the Consolidate form, the transaction text for the consolidated legal entity is updated with the transaction text of the subsidiary legal entity. The %6 variable is replaced with the consolidated account number in the transaction text. For more information, see (BRA) Transfer subsidiary legal entity transactions to a consolidated legal entity.
