Please Note:

  • It is good practice to use a consistent naming convention for your journal entries
  • Journal entries can only be made to accounting periods that have a status of open. If an entry needs to be made to a closed period, the period must first be opened so the entry can be made. The period can then be re-closed once the adjustment has been made
  • In order to post a journal entry the "total debits" and "total credits" must match. If they do not match, the "out of balance" field will display the difference
  • A Salesforce approval process can be added to the Journal Entry object to enable an approval process
