We have business activity transactions that post themselves to what is now the wrong Gen Led accounts. When we see this happening, we make adjustments from wrong to corrected. But we need to understand how this is happening, change the rules so activity goes to right place in first place. A/R Credits and RMAs are posting some activity to our Gen Led Cash Account. This has been going on for years with no one noticing, until a new auditor questioned discrepancy between actual bank account balance and content of General Ledger. I suspect the account involved may have had different meaning when we originally installed BPCS. Under today's business model, the only G/L A/C which should be impacted: Sales; Receivables; Inventory. Where, in BPCS, do we change the rules for where A/R Credits and RMA gets into various Gen Led accounts? We desire to organize our Cost of Sales in Gen Led, for same item classes, somewhat differently by facility. Is this doable, without modification, or are the item class (IIC file) rules absolute, irrespective of facility? We are 405 CD. Years ago a collection of employees with intensive BPCS education setup the rules by which BPCS operates, transaction effects, facilities, flow of business activity into General Ledger. Then over the years the enterprise has evolved, personnel turnover, new management, without investment in continuing BPCS education, or taking good care of documentation. The rules need to be adjusted, but we having trouble locating the documentation, and management resists approval for calling tech support. They want us to figure this out, then fix it. I am the only remaining member of the old guard on staff who has been to BPCS University, but at the time my duties did not include accounting area, so my exposure to BPCS Accounting theory was minimal. When leadership has not had formal ERP education, they not know what they missing, let alone the rest of the enterprise. - Al Macintyre http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:AlMac http://www.ryze.com/go/Al9Mac BPCS/400 Computer Janitor ... see http://radio.weblogs.com/0107846/stories/2002/11/08/bpcsDocSources.html
