GL Account Determination

I wanted to understand what exactly is GL Account Determination? How changes there affect accounting and reports?

Can some one please point me to material which explains this with sample accounting entries.

Default account as control accounts are ones like 'Receivables' etc. When these are defined, the G\L account will be defaulted in the window where these are needed.

As an example, check in DEMO by defining the 'Cash on HandAccount' under the 'Sales' tab of the G\L Determination. When you goto the Incoming Payment and then to Payment means > Cash tab, the G\L Account will be defaulted.

If the G\L Account is not defined, then user may get a message in red mentioning that the G\L Account is missing and the transaction will not be posted.

Kind Regards,
