Business value

When reconciling or auditing data such as expenses, it is useful to see the source document line description in the general ledger entries.

Feature details

From the General Ledger Setup page, you can choose the Source Description Posting Setup action to define for sales, purchase, and service documents whether the line description text is carried to the resulting item ledger entries depending on the line type. Note that when you select to copy source line descriptions to the resulting entries, such G/L entries will also be grouped per document line.
