Map Attributes to Journal Attributes

Once you have created your attributes and created the necessary journal columns, you need to map your attributes to journal attributes using the Journal Attribute Mapping option on Edit Match Type.

For adjustments, you work on a per Match Type basis, and you map the journal columns to the Reconciliation Account and Offset Account.

For transactions you work on a data source basis, and map the data source attributes to journal attributes.

To map adjustment attributes to journal attributes:

  1. From Home, select Applications, then Match Types.
  2. From the Actions menu of the match type you want to work on, select Edit.
  3. In the Edit Match Type dialog, select Journal Attribute Mapping.
  4. Under Mapping for, select either Adjustment or one of the data sources displayed in the drop-down.
  5. For each Journal Column, select the attributes from the drop down list for Reconciliation Account and Offset Account.
  6. Once you have made all selections, click Save.

    Note:

    You need to save the mapping for Adjustments before continuing on to save your mapping for each data source.
