Subject Re: Need help adding a GL account
Date Sun, 07 Jan 2018 15:25:00 GMT
Hi Blake

I've only just seen this message.

You can create your chart of accounts with an blank OFBiz install and seed data.  Please see
below for some documentation that myself and Craig Parker are working on that should help
you.

Note that even though the screen says it is in 'Edit mode' it is actually in Add mode so will
add new accounts. 

I've included some instructions of how to setup the basic 5 main account types below:

Thanks
Sharan

-------------------------------------------------

So the first step we need to do is create a Chart of Account Master template in OFBIz.

-Select “Accounting” from the Applications drop down menu 
-Select “Global GL Settings” from the Accounting Manager drop down menu 

(Default screen should be a blank chart of accounts)

-Click the “Navigate Accounts” button

An 'Edit GL Account' window will be displayed and the default is Add Mode. 

Create the main Assets account:
-Select “Not Applicable” for GL Account Type Id
-Select “Asset” for GL Account Class Id
-Select “Money” for GL Resource Type Id
-Enter “ASSETS” in GL Account Code (NOTE: You might want to give this a code. Using
a code will help you structure the account hierarchy in the order you want it to be displayed.
Using text defaults to alphabetical order)
-Enter “Assets” in Account Name 
-Click “Add”

Create the Liabilities main account
Make sure you are still in Add mode or Click “Navigate Accounts” again (NOTE: If
you do a change and you are in update mode, it will update the account that you were previously
working on rather than create a new one!)

-Select “Not Applicable” for GL Account Type Id
-Select “Liability” for GL Account Class Id
-Select “Money” for GL Resource Type Id
-Enter “LIABILITIES” in GL Account Code 
-Enter “Liabilities” in Account Name
-Click “Add”

Create the Owner Equities main account
Make sure you are still in Add Mode or Click “Navigate Accounts” again

-Select “Not Applicable” for GL Account Type Id
-Select “Equity” for GL Account Class Id
-Select “Money” for GL Resource Type Id
-Enter “OWNER EQUITIES” in GL Account Code 
-Enter “Owner Equities” in Account Name 
-Click “Add”

Create the Revenues main account
Make sure you are still in Add Mode or Click “Navigate Accounts” again

-Select “Not Applicable” for GL Account Type Id
-Select “Revenue” for GL Account Class Id
-Select “Money” for GL Resource Type Id
-Enter “REVENUES” in GL Account Code 
-Enter “Revenues” in Account Name 
-Click “Add”

Create the Administrative Expenses main account
Make sure you are still in Add Mode or Click “Navigate Accounts” again

-Select “Not Applicable” for GL Account Type Id
-Select “Selling, General or Administrative Expense” for GL Account Class Id
-Select “Money” for GL Resource Type Id
-Enter “ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES” in GL Account Code 
-Enter “Administrative Expenses” in Account Name 
-Click “Add”
