Updated: September 11, 2012

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

You can set up reconciliation matching rules and reconciliation matching rule sets to help the bank reconciliation process. Reconciliation matching rules are a set of criteria that are used to filter bank statement lines and bank document lines during the reconciliation process. You can set up more than one matching rule and create a reconciliation matching rule set in the Reconciliation matching rule sets form. Use the Reconciliation matching rules form to set up the reconciliation matching rules.

NoteNote

Bank reconciliation matching rules are used if you are reconciling an electronic bank statement using advance bank reconciliation.

  • In the Reconciliation matching rules form, you can select which actions and selection criteria are used when the matching rule is run.

  • In the Actions group, select which action will be taken when the matching rule is run during the reconciliation process.

    NoteNote

    The option that you select will determine which fields are displayed.

    • Match with bank document – Create criteria to specify how the bank documents and bank statement lines are matched when the matching rule is run from the Bank reconciliation worksheet. The transaction lines are selected according to the additional criteria set up on the FastTabs.

    • Clear reversal statement lines – Create criteria to specify how reversal statement lines should be removed from the Bank reconciliation worksheet form when the matching rule is run. This option is used when the bank makes a mistake and there are two bank statement lines listed in the imported bank statement and the lines must be reconciled.

    • Mark new transactions –Create criteria to specify how new transactions should be marked on the Bank reconciliation worksheet when the matching rule is run.

    NoteNote
