We are on IFM now, but when we were on Accounting Management, I had this problem all the time. Deleting the records are OK provided they truly were for last year and the users don't need them because they made adjusting journal entries last year to adjust for the "missing" transactions. It was my experience that these orphaned records were due to the user keying a posting date of a month prior to the current month and the closing would not pick them up leaving them stranded in TEMGEN forever. If the transactions are truly for this year, you may need to change the year and let them post. The users need to make this decision. Sometimes the users key in the wrong posting date and mapics allows it. I had a query that the user would run just before closing, that would look for any dates in TEMGEN that were less than the current month, so the records could be fixed or deleted before closing the month and not be left behind in TEMGEN. -----Original Message----- From: mapics-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:mapics-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of aldg3@xxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, April 20, 2004 1:03 PM To: Mapics ML Subject: TEMGEN contains prior year PR JEs Environment: Mapics DB, Mod 4 Hi group: Our P/R person ran the "Payroll Temporary General Ledger listing" (AMV611) for Period 5, April 2004 and upon examination of the report, we find that it includes Period 5 P/R JE's from both this fiscal year and the last fiscal year. I looked at TEMGEN using Query/400 and found that of the 5,023 Period 5 P/R JE records, only 984 were from this current fiscal year. The rest appear from Period 5 for the prior fiscal year. Is there a fix for this using Mapics? If all the prior fiscal year records were made "inactive," I suppose that would solve the problem. But is there a way to delete these 4,039 records quickly and efficently? I look forward to your comments.
