If you press F17 on the screen Create Ledger Entries screen , IM lets you subset the records selected based on the IM Transaction Date. By default, this is the date when you entered the IM transaction. Once you select all the transactions for a given date range there are at least three ways things can go wrong: (1) Someone enters back-dated transactions; (2) There are transactions within the date range that have not had accounts assigned and cannot be converted into GL journals; and (3) If you process in batch mode, you might not process the batch until after you have selected entries for your general ledger. A much safer approach is to wait for the IM close and then select (F17) based on the IM period number. This has two advantages: (1) Back-dated transactions and unprocessed batches will not be problems; and (2) It is easier to reconcile IM and GL balances. The downside of this approach is that you have to coordinate the IM closing with the end of your accounting period.
