  • 1. Chapter 3: Set Up Journal Templates and BatchesCHAPTER 3: SET UP JOURNAL TEMPLATES ANDBATCHESObjectives The objectives are: • Explain the purpose and organization of journal templates and journal batches. • Create general journal templates and general journal batches.Introduction General journals enable users to enter data into general ledger accounts and other accounts, such as customer accounts, vendor accounts, and bank accounts. There are several general journal templates, such as the Cash Receipt Journal and the Fixed Assets G/L Journal. Each journal template has a separate page with particular functions, and the fields that are needed to support those functions. If necessary, users can set up multiple journal batches (individual journals) for each journal template. For example, each employee in the accounts receivable department can have their own cash receipt journal. Manual Setup vs. RIM The RIM toolkit does not create any setup data for journal templates; therefore, setting up journal templates and batches is an entirely manual process.

  • 2. Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009Journal Templates, Batches, and Lines The three layers of the journal entry system are: • Journal templates • Journal batches • Journal lines FIGURE 3.1 RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN JOURNAL TEMPLATES, BATCHES, AND LINES Journal Templates Journals are used for different types or groups of entries, such as purchases, payments, sales, and receivables. Each journal type is set up with its own journal template. Journal templates provide the basic journal structure where users can specify default information for all batches created using the template. Journal Batches Journal batches are created based on the journal templates. All journal batches created from a specific template have the same structure, default settings, and information defined in the template. However, since these settings are defaults, users can change them for a specific journal batch. Batches are typically used to separate one users entries from another. For example, Phyllis and Cassie both work on general journal entries. Phyllis typically makes entries and posts them at a later time when they are approved. To keep Cassies entries from becoming mixed with Phyllis entries, separate batches can be assigned to the two users.3-2 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
  • 3. Chapter 3: Set Up Journal Templates and Batches Journal Lines Journal lines hold the values that users want to post as journal entries, including account number, posting date, and amount. Journal Template Fields The General Journal Templates page contains the standard journal templates set up for a company. FIGURE 3.2 LIST OF GENERAL JOURNAL TEMPLATES The fields shown in the following table are included in the General Journal Templates page. Field Description Name and Unique identifier and short description for the Description template. Type Determines the structure of the journal page. Recurring Determines if the journal is to be used to make recurring journals. If this field is selected, the No. Series field must be blank as it will always be replaced with the posting number series. Bal. Account Type Identifies the default balancing account for all journal and Bal. Account lines in all batches created under this template. No. Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® 3-3Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
  • 4. Application Setup in Microsoft Dynamics® NAV 2009 Field Description No. Series Identifies the default number series used to assign document numbers to journal lines in journal batches created using this template. If this field is left blank, document numbers must be manually entered in the journal lines. This is used, for example, with temporary journal postings that are not important to track. Posting No. Series Select the number series to assign document numbers to ledger entries posted from this journal batch. You may want to only assign document numbers when you post journals. Do this by leaving the No. Series field blank and filling in the Posting No. Series field. Alternatively, enter journal lines using one number series and use a different number series for posted journal lines. To do that, fill in the No. Series field and Posting No. Series field with different number series codes. When you post the journal, the program replaces the document number on the journal line with the next number in the series. This is used, for example, with important journal postings that must be traceable. Source Code Select the source code to assign to all journal batches created from this template. A source code is an extra dimension by which transaction entries can be tracked, for example, in audit trails. Reason Code Select the default reason code to assign to all journal batches created from this template. A reason code is a text field where you can make a note about why the entry is changed. This is also useful in analysis because you can filter on a reason code to see problem patterns. Force Doc. Specify whether documents posted in this general Balance journal template must balance by document number and document type. If this field is empty, the program balances the journal by date only.3-4 Microsoft Official Training Materials for Microsoft Dynamics ® Your use of this content is subject to your current services agreement
  • 5. Chapter 3: Set Up Journal Templates and Batches Field Description Copy VAT Setup If selected, the program automatically fills in the to Jnl. Lines general posting type and VAT posting groups for accounts and balancing accounts on the journal lines of the selected journal template. When the check mark is inserted or removed from this field, a message appears asking if the journal batches must be updated. Click Yes or No, as applicable. Allow VAT If selected, the manual adjustment of VAT amounts in Difference journals is allowed. When the check mark is inserted or removed from this field, a message appears asking if the journal batches must be updated. Click Yes or No, as applicable. You may want to have two versions of one journal template, such as one for daily postings and one for opening processes. There are additional hidden fields on the General Journal Templates page. Use the Choose Columns function to display these fields and press F1 to access online help for more information.Create Journal Templates and Batches A number of standard journal templates are set up by default, but you can create new journal templates. If you need multiple journals of a certain type, you can create multiple journal batches for a journal template. Procedure: Create a Journal Template Follow these steps to create a new general journal template: 1. In the navigation pane, click the Departments button. 2. Click Administration and then click Application Setup. 3. On the Application Setup page, under Financial Management, click General and then click Journal Templates. 4. Click New to insert a journal template. 5. In the Name field, type a unique identifier for the template. 6. In the Description field, type a short description of the template. 7. In the Type field, enter the relevant journal type. 8. Place a check mark in the Recurring check box if this is a recurring journal. 9. In the Bal. Account Type and Bal. Account No. fields, enter the default balancing account. 10. In No. Series field, enter the default number series for this template.

  • 9. Chapter 3: Set Up Journal Templates and BatchesSummary Journal templates allow you to work in a journal page that is designed for a specific purpose. That is, the fields contained in each journal template are exactly the ones needed for a particular part of the program. For example, you do not need to use the same fields when you post a sales invoice as when you post a payment. You can create multiple journal batches under each journal template. That is, several journals, each with its own name, can display the same page. This can be practical, for example, if every user needs to have his or her own journal.
