Al,

TEMGEN holds the posted ledger entries for months or periods which haven't
been closed.  CURHIS holds the posted entries for closed months or periods.
The only time that you could possibly catch an entry in both files is while
the close program is actually running - I believe that they're copied, then
deleted.

One of my pet peeves is that if you use 13-period accounting, no posted year
is entered into the records, so if you have more than a year's worth of
records in CURHIS, there's no way to tell which year the entries are for.
You end up having to keep CURHIS purged to less than a year at all times,
and of course making prior history available is just about impossible within
vanilla MAPICS.  (This has frustrated me since we installed MAPICS II for
the /38 in 1988!  GRRRR!)

Hi Mapics ML:

Can you give me some insight into the relationship between the Mapics Master
file, CURHIS and the Work file, TEMGEN?

When you are entering transactions into an open Period (say by General
Journal and interfaces with A/P, A/R, P/R, etc.), do these transactions go
into both files at the same time?  Or do they first go into TEMGEN and
remain there until the Period is closed (and you move on to the next Period)
at which time they get moved (or copied) into CURHIS?

Do all transactions eventually get into both file as some point in time?

I have to admit that I really don't understand the relationship of these two
files and your comments will really be useful to me and hopefully to others
in the Mapics ML.
