When you install Accounting Seed you are provided with a skeleton Chart of Accounts as part of the install.  It is expected that you will need to add, delete and/or edit these records to create your own Chart of Accounts.  Accounting Seed prevents you from deleting a GL Account if it has a Transaction record, Financial Cube record, or Accounting Setting associated to it. If during configuration and testing you have posted transactions to any of the GL Accounts that you don't intend to use in your Chart of Accounts we recommend the following steps to edit your Chart of Accounts:

  1. Delete all the GL Accounts that came with our install and don't have any Transactions, Financial Cubes, or Accounting Settings associated with them
  2. Rename the GL Accounts that can't be deleted with your naming convention
  3. Upload the rest of your Chart of Accounts (excluding the GL Accounts that you have already renamed in Accounting Seed)
Note: The only time Accounting Seed inserts GL Account records is during our initial install script. This means for all subsequent upgrades your Chart of Accounts will remain unchanged by our package upgrades.
Below is the Chart of Accounts included with the installation of Accounting Seed.  It also illustrates the Type, Sub Type 1, and Sub Type 2 field values.
