Title:Issue with Journal Entry Back-outs in Analytical Accounting

Hi all

Sorry for not posting for quite some time… Has been a hectic month and a half for me… :( But I have now come back and I have decided to post an interesting issue that we have faced in Analytical Accounting.

The scenario given below is based on the data in Fabricam, in Microsoft Dynamics GP 10 SP4 (but issue occurs in production companies as well). :)

I create a journal entry in Z-EUR as of 04/12/2017 in Fabricam with some debits and credits. The exchange rate for Z-EUR to Z-US$ on 04/12/2017 was 1.4 approximately. I provide all the appropriate AA information and post the journal entry with Analytical Accounting information.

Now when I try to backout the journal entry in GP after a month, I click on the Correct button and choose “Backout a Journal Entry” and choose the journal entry which I posted above. Once I click OK on this window, the voided journal entry details are populated in the journal entry window, where the user is not allowed to change anything, except the transaction date and the batch number.

The reason why the date is allowed to be changed is because when I actually void the journal entry, the actual period where I posted the original entry could have been officially reconciled and closed for posting. So I have to post this void as of the current date that I am voiding.

So I change the date to 05/12/2017. The exchange rate as of this date from Z-EUR to Z-US$ is 1.5. When the back-out journal entry is posted, the functional amounts are posted in the GL20000 table based on the exchange rate as of 05/12/2017 (i.e.) 1.5. But unfortunately, in the AA ledgers the backout automatically posts with the date as the original transaction and the exchange rate as of the original transaction date which is 1.4. This indicates that the date change made at the GL Transaction when voiding does not impact the AA ledgers.

This causes a huge differences in balances between the General Ledger table balances and the AA table balances at the functional level.

Many might feel that revaluation would fix this problem (just as I had thought) but just believe that revaluation does not look at AA tables at all.. It only revalues the values based on the GL summary tables. Hence this difference lying between the AA and the GL tables will never get fixed by the revaluation process… It will have to be a manual fix at the AA table level, which is really a tough ask, but unfortunately, that’s the only solution available right now.

We have raised this issue with Microsoft and have accepted it as a bug in AA, and are slated to release a fix for this in SP5, but please ensure that if you are a client (or) if you have implemented AA in many clients, please ensure that they are aware of this, so that we can handle the journal back-outs better till the fix for this is released by Microsoft… :)

Until next post…
