Continia - Gen. Prod. Posting Group

    Hello!

    I have a customer that recently implemented Continia in a Swedish localization for a US company. When trying to post to a G\L Account he is getting the error that he needs a Gen. Prod. Posting Group on the G\L Account. The accounts are not setup with them because they shouldn't be necessary. Does anyone know of a way around this? It seems to be driven by Continia.

    Thanks!

    Hi Amanda

    Which product from Continia is installed?

    If Expense Management - you can find the posting setup at
    Departments – Administration – Application Setup – Expense Management – General – Posting Setup:

    If the posting setups were copied from an existing setup when you created the Swedish localization maybe you need to clean up the posting setup to remove any with Gen. Prod Posting Group set? A simple rule would just indicate which G/L Account will be used for each Expense Type or a Vehicle (without specifying any values in the (Gen Prod Posting Group column).


    If Document Capture -you can find the setting at Departments – Administration – Application Setup – Document Capture -  Document Capture Setup / Purchase Approval settings:

    If Purchase Allocation / G/L Account Type is set to 'Use Posting Setup', then Document Capture assigns the purchase allocation account set on the General Posting Setup DC (found at Departments – Administration – Application Setup – Document Capture - Purchase - General Posting Setup (DC) ) with the same of the general business posting group on the vendor and general product posting group of the G/L account or item, as the cost account.

    If Purchase Allocation / G/L Account Type is set to 'Use Source Account' or 'Use Account on Posting Line', then Document Capture assigns the G/L account on the purchase invoice line as the cost account. As long as the invoice line type is G/L Account.  If the purchase invoice line created is of type other than G/L account, Document Capture uses the General Posting Setup DC (found at Departments – Administration – Application Setup – Document Capture - Purchase - General Posting Setup (DC)) and  assigns the purchase allocation account with the same Gen. Bus. Posting Group and Gen. Prod. Posting Group as the purchase invoice line, as the cost account.

    Hope this helps.
