Thanks Steve.
I found in RCO Company Master file where the data existed.
I looked in GLD125 first, eventually found ACR120 maintains it, thanks to cross-reference what updates what file.
I found an outline of documentation where GL installed in first place, what files control where accounting data ends up in GL.
There's also RCT customer type, which we use for entirely different purpose than BPCS vision, because we had found some place in the documentation that this was an optional field (false, some AR reports sort on that). There's space in there to have different GL destinations by customer type. Ours blank, which means BPCS then goes to RCO.

I continue my research because lots happening differently with our accounting, that I need to figure out how to implement with a minimum of unintended consequences.

Al,,

It's been a long time, but I believe if you look at the company master
file, there might be some account definitions there.

Subject: [BPCS-L] BL to GL

We're 405 CD on V5R1

We are NOT on tech support from Infor/SSA. We have other BPCS tech
support, which my boss not authorize me to call unless his approval,
which
is very rare.

Our manufacturing company has been bought out by a parent firm that will
be
doing a chunk of accounting for all companies they have bought out, so
we
are moving from almost closed loop ERP to another paradigm that I do not

yet fully comprehend.

Data gets to GL accounts through an apparent BPCS jigsaw puzzle method
that
works, but I can't find all the pieces to remap some of the rules.

Shipping / Billing populates GL accounts associated with sales, cost of
sales, inventory valuation, thanks to charts of rules in IIC item class
master, location (warehouse profit center) in customer order, ZPA system

parameters etc.

What I can't find is where are the rules that tell BPCS that, via BL
(Billing) journal, from BIL500 etc., our A/R total is in A/C 110.10, so
that I can change that to 110.30.

The company wants 110.10 to be total invoices before parent company took

over certain accounting, with 110.30 being total invoices after some
cut-off.

We need to keep AR cash (ACR500) updating 110.10 because now, the only
cash
from customers posted to our AR GL, are for invoices generated before
transition to parent company handling this accounting.

I want to switch the BL flow, then make GL adjustment for what happened
in
days between transition beginning, and this switch getting implemented.
