Balances Corruption Fix Script (GLBALFIX) Now Available for Parameters Including Special Characters

General Ledger Balances Corruption Fix script -known as GLBALFIX- was provided by Development to help safely detect or fix corrupted actual balances. This script basically rebuilds the balances based on the posted journal lines.

We have briefly presented the script to customers in a previous blog article which is still available here

This easy-to-use script could not be used for cases where the input parameters such as ledgers or calendar periods included special characters (arabic, german, polish and so on).

New version available!

Development recently released a new version of GLBALFIX script which will addres special characters cases

Using Additional Currencies for Reporting Purposes in General Ledger

The need to report in additional currencies may occur at any time to satisfy legal, statutory or management supplementary reporting requirements. This is also a good option to be considered if you operate in countries with highly inflationary economies.

In General Ledger this can be accomplished using

  • Reporting Currencies - where the need is to simply maintain transactions in multiple currencies
  • Secondary Ledgers - where the main purpose is to represent transactions in a different accounting method, calendar, currency, chart of accounts

You may configure any of these setup alternatives to comply with your Generally Accepted Accounting Principles circumstances.
