Entering Logged Vouchers Processing Logged Vouchers by Ayman Refat - March 28, 20180 Entering Logged Vouchers Concept You usually know which G/L account to distribute a voucher to, but sometimes you might not know. In such a case, to maintain accurate accounts payable information, you can enter a logged voucher. When you log a voucher, the accounts payable information is recorded in the Accounts Payable Ledger table (F0411), and the expense is recorded in a temporary holding account, one that is used for all logged vouchers. Logged vouchers require a step after their initial entry, which is called “redistribution.” When a logged voucher is redistributed, the expense is removed from the temporary holding account and is moved to the actual account where the expense would properly reside. The information does not change when a logged voucher is redistributed. The system assigns a logged voucher the document type PL. Prerequisites Before you complete this task, you must: • Activate the processing option for logged vouchers in the Voucher Logging processing option of the Voucher Entry MBF program (P0400047). • Activate the Use Suspense Account option on the Company Setup program (P0010). • Set up AAI item PP and, if you use the trade suspense account, set up AAI item PQ. Assign an approver number to each supplier (optional). • Run the Update Approver/Category Code 7 (optional) program. Procedure In this task, you will enter a logged voucher to a G/L suspense account. Step Action Navigate to the Voucher Logging Entry program (P0411) from the Other Voucher Entry Methods menu (G04111). Click the Other Voucher Entry Methods link. Click the Voucher Logging Entry link.
