Subledger Create Accounting Program or GL Journal Import may sometimes fail due to having to transfer data into GL on an invalid account - one that was recently disabled or end-dated.
To help avoid such errors, GL provides the feature of Alternate Accounts which gives the users an opportunity to setup a replacement code combination for an invalidated one, allowing the mentioned programs to continue until successful completion.
How to define this setup?
Just navigate to GL > Setup > Accounts > Combinations - define your Alternate Account for the code combinations as needed:
Where will the Alternate Account be used?
Are there situations where Alternate Accounts can not be used?
I like this feature and want to know more!
