Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The GL Account or Master Account file stores the last digits of the General ledger chart of accounts.

This is a prerequisite to setting up a new general ledger number. Usually the description of the account master is the same across all departments such that the default description when setting up a new GL chart is from the account master. This brings consistency across departmental general ledger accounts.
