SECTION 6.1.1 - ADD A NEW GENERAL LEDGER ACCOUNT
USAGE: To add a new General Ledger account to the General Ledger master-file.
DISCUSSION: When you start this function, the computer will initially ask for a General Ledger code. Insert a code and press <Enter>. The General Ledger code structure is defined in SECTION 6.
To return to the GENERAL LEDGER MAINTENANCE MENU, press <ESC>.
Once HiFinance has accepted the code you will be presented with a screen full of all the fields you can enter information into. These fields are fully described in SECTION 6. Depending on your installation, not all fields fit on one page. In this case, when you complete the last field on the first page, page two will automatically be displayed for you to fill in, and so on.
Where required, enter a value into each field that is surrounded by brackets. To move to the next field, press <Enter>. Complete your entry by pressing <F10>. If HiFinance has found no inconsistencies in your entries, you will be asked to confirm and the information will then be saved to disk.
If at any time you wish to abort the entry sequence, press <ESC>. You will be asked to confirm your request. If you abort the entry all current changes will be cancelled and the account will not have been added to the General Ledger master-file.
