David, The way around the 13-period problem is to purge your CURHIS straight after YEAREND close and Initialise, BUT then restore it into the restored history file(cant remember it's name(RESHST or RESHIS?) which makes it available at least from a report point of view. But I agree with you - I can't see any reason why Mapics couldn't have left the year in there - I wonder if anything has been done in XA6 with the changes to TEMGEN, etc for AMPLUS Regards John Clayton Senior Consultant Powerlan Ltd Melbourne, Australia "Shaw, David" <firstname.lastname@example.org>@midrange.com on 25/08/2000 06:25:27 Please respond to MAPICS-L@midrange.com Sent by: email@example.com To: "'MAPICS-L@midrange.com'" <MAPICS-L@midrange.com> cc: Subject: RE: TEMGEN & CURHIS Mapics Files 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!) Dave Shaw MAPICS-L Moderator Spartan International, Inc. Spartanburg, SC -----Original Message----- From: aldg [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] 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. +--- | This is the MAPICS Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MAPICS-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MAPICS-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MAPICS-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com +--- +--- | This is the MAPICS Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MAPICS-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MAPICS-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MAPICS-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
