Issue account in G/L

Issue account in G/L

Issue account in G/L

I'm working in an older version, and I have a lot of items to purge from Inventory due to Excess/obsolete...
Is there any way I can change the default Issue (transaction entry) account so I don't have to back up for each item?
I am in an old DOS environment.

RE: Issue account in G/L

The default GL account used during an Inventory Transaction Entry, Issue is the Cost Of Goods Sold account for the product line the item belongs to. You could print out the Transaction Journal and make a GL entry if you want the dollars to go to another account such as Scrap.

RE: Issue account in G/L

I wonder if I could get accounting to do that after the fact...afterall, they have to do their magic anyway (I don't play in that realm, just charge items to the inventory scrap line, or programs, or whatever)

RE: Issue account in G/L

Let me point out that if you are on the old DOS version you need to upgrade to a modern version. I seriously doubt if computers with Windows Vista will be able to run DOS versions of MAS plus there will not be many users who remember enough about that version to offer help if anything goes wrong.

RE: Issue account in G/L

You know it!
Anyway, bigger problem recently...I'll generate a new thread.
