The general ledger is a batch processed posted ledger. This means that all postings are performed manually via the GL post routine and have the following transactions:
Job Costing JCTrans
General Ledger GLtrans
Other ledgers such as sales orders create IVtrans and ARtrans records while the work order ledger creates JCtrans records.
These transaction records are posted to the general ledger and posting must be performed at least once per month preferably at least once per week.
When performing month end the general ledger must be the last ledger to be processed.
