Period Posting - GL account determination

In 2007, you are able to assign a specific GL determination based on the "period selection". But how do you copy your GL account determination from 1 year to the other ? Do we have to retype them manualy?

Thanks for the help,

Dear Sophie,

When you create a new posing period, all the settings in G/L Account

Determination will be copied from current posting period.

we can assume when you created posting period of 2008, you hadn't set


Account Determination in posting period 2007 yet. Meaning is that you

created first posting period 2007 and defined 2008. Afterwards, you

determined G/L accounts in the first posting period.

After that you set G/L Account Determination for current posting period

at that time ( e.g 1stJan, 2007 - 31stDec, 2008), this will not be

copied to other existing posting period.

If this is the case, you need to enter the account settings manually.

Also check 871509 for more information.

Hope this answers your question.
