Al, Did you ever get an answer to your question? If not... Here is my 2 cents... and hopefully I won't confuse the issue... If you say "Y" to included posted journals, This refers to any records in TEMGEN within the date range selected... So if you say "Y" then they get added to your totals for whatever periods happen to be in TEMGEN. If you say "N" then it will only look at GELMAS and the periods that are closed plus your balance forward totals. Hope this helps Pete Al Gershen <aldg3@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: Environment: Mapics DB/Y2K (Mod 4); 13 Month Accounting Cycle Hi group: Regarding the Prompt on the Preliminary G/L Input Screen, AMG401, The Mapics Reference Manual, says in part: ------ For 13-period accounting, this prompt appears: INCLUDE JOURNALS FOR SELECTED PERIOD ONLY (Y/N)? The following definitions apply.... If you answer N: All TEMGEN records for periods/months prior to the selected period/month are accumulated and added to the balance forward field and print out as the [Opening] Account Balance. Then all TEMGEN records with a posting period/month falling within the selected range are printed. If you answer Y: The [Opening] Account Balance only includes the balance-brought-foward amount. Only TEMGEN records with a posting period or month falling within the selected range range are printed. ------ (Note: I added the word, "Opening" to clarify the meaning of the two paragraphs.) It seems to me that the "balance forward field" is the ending balances (YTD Debits and Credits) from the last month or period that is Closed. As an example, we ran our Period 12, November 2005 Preliminary G/L last week (Period 11, October 2005 was closed at the end of November 2005) answering the prompt both ways (Y and N) and the opening balances on the reports were different. This doesn't make any sense to me as the prior Period 11 was closed well before these Preliminary G/Ls were run. Your comments on this subject would be appreciated.
