    Prior to Daisy update, Accts Payable was able to expense to GL 11060 as a 'Holding account'.  This  GL was designated as a Bank, under AcctsRec and used to offset Accts Receivable from time to time.

    It was also used during Cash Disbursements as a holding account for payments - again to offset.

    Today, the "Error: Expense GL Account: GL Accounts with "Bank" checked are not allowed" has appeared.  

    I tried taking off the "Bank" designation, but now my Accts Rec cannot use to clear offsets either.

    What do you suggest?

    I’ve heard similar complaints from other users.

    The difficulty in this is that AP lines will not show up in the bank rec interface.

    The only transactions that can be cleared through the bank rec process are the credit side of cash disbursements, the debit side of cash receipts and journal entry lines. So if the goal of marking a GL account as a bank account is to be able to reconcile it through the bank reconciliation process, you are shooting yourself in the proverbial foot by booking entries to it in objects that create transactions that cannot be reconciled.

    I suspect (but have no firsthand knowledge) that this is why Accounting Seed implemented the new rule.

    If you do submit a case, I would be curious to hear what they say. :-)
