Saving General Ledger Month-End Reports

In General Ledger, you can customize reports and set up a Report View for month-end reports.

At the end of each month, you can print these reports by clicking Define Views and selecting the month-end report view. This saves time because you no longer need to set up each report every month and print reports individually.

At year-end, you can use these same month-end reports as your year-end reports. The information that you post in ACS is cumulative, so when you select to print a report for the month of December, or for the last month of your fiscal year, the information in that report represents all activity in ACS for the entire year.
