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!

Get Help to Verify Your General Ledger Balances Anytime!

General ledger is the core of accounting information summarizing all financial transactions into accounts and gathering all data into balances that will be used to prepare financial statements or for various other reporting purposes. 

  • Maintaining correct balances is crucial for reporting purposes
  • Financial users may want to verify balances periodically to make sure they are accurate 

In order to gather information needed for analyzing problems related to General Ledger balances, in addition to the usual period closure activities such as running specific diagnostics from Doc ID 1416402.1 that would spot balances issues, you should also consider our Glbalfix - Gl Balances Corruption Script.

We have gathered all the useful information related to Glbalfix script, from installation to detailing all checks performed, preparation and execution along with potential errors and suggestions to spot and eliminate the root cause prior to performing any fix, in this new document:

Glbalfix: GL Balances Corruption Script - Master Note (Doc ID 1563019.2).

Once installed, the script can be safely submitted to run anytime in report mode, to verify the balances only - here's a sample output:

Remember, running the script does not mean it would change any data, you can use it just to verify the balances are correct! If a problem is detected, you decide further if and when to fix it!

Why don't you give Glbalfix a try?
