13.1.2 What You Should Know About

Topic Description
Customizing the post program This program performs a number of complex tasks. JD Edwards World strongly recommends that you do not customize it.
Posting an alternate currency ledger If you use the alternate currency ledger XA, set the post program to automatically update the ledger and produce a separate Posting Journal.
Making changes during the posting process Do not change accounts, AAIs for A/R or intercompany settlements, A/R and G/A constants, or processing options for the post program.

13.2 Verifying the A/R Post Process

After posting your invoices, verify that your invoice batches posted successfully.

Verifying the post process consists of:

  • Reviewing Posting Edit Report

  • Reviewing Posting Journal

  • Reviewing Other Posting Reports

13.2.1 Reviewing the Posting Edit Report

After you run the post program, use the Posting Edit Report to verify whether the system posted your batches successfully. The following appears on this report:

  • Batches that posted successfully

  • Documents with errors that prevented a batch from posting

13.2.2 Reviewing the Posting Journal

To verify the automatic offsets that the system created during the posting process, review the Posting Journal. It lists only those batches that posted successfully.

13.2.3 Reviewing Other Posting Reports

If you enter invoices with multiple currencies, the system generates the following reports during the posting process:

Report Description
Batch Edit Lists problems related to the batch.
Posting Journal Lists both the CA ledger and converted AA amounts for foreign currency transactions. Additionally, it lists the currency code of the CA ledger amount and the domestic currency of the company for the AA ledger amount.
Batches with Balancing Problems Lists AA and CA ledger information.

On these reports, the CA amounts represent the foreign side of the entry and the AA amounts represent the domestic side. Both the CA and the AA ledgers must be in balance. CA totals might not be currency specific.
