Could anyone please provide me the link which explains about the viewdistributions functionality.
Thanks in advance
The 'view distribution' button/form that is available for example in the purchase order header gives you a preview on the costs and the accounts plus financial dimensions that will be used when you post the order.
If you navigate to the PO line and open financial-distribute amounts then you can actually influence the accounts and financial dimensions that shall be used. That is, you can edit them there for example if you want to use a different financial dimension or account for a specific line.
This functionality is used in the full PO cycle free text invoices, and travel expense......
The first point of the functionality is to allow you to review the accounting distributions of a document prior to journalizing. It checks the active account structures. It Identifies each segment values i.e. main account or financial dimension. It may also validate that taxes have been processed.
The second point as Ludwig mentions is to allow the user to make edits to those accounting entry before journalizing, and that should minimise the need for month end adjustments.
Financial - distribute amounts is the screen where you define and can view how a particular transaction amount will be accounted. Use the tree control on the left to enter appropriate dimensions, % split etc. You can also distribute equally . or delete or amend here. It does not show any amounts. That happens on the transaction e.g, on a PO at the time of invoicing. When you open the accounting distribution form from the PO here you will see amounts, which you can manually change.
The subledger journal tab gives you a preview of the journal before posting the document..
Check the GL parameters where there is an option to select source document, or accounting distribution. (that gives the option to mimic Ax 2009 logic where the dimension defaulted from the document header),
Note you can parameterise to post in detail or in summary.
Good Morning subashini,
Has your question been answered or is there still something unclear/open?
Would be great if you could keep us updated here.
It's not clear.could you please give me the example for this functionality
if you go to the screens mentioned then it should be self evident. See this old video for a walk through https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaTKzsZ3-f8
In addition, please have a look at the MS docs sites where you can find a lot of descriptions and examples for accounting distributions. You can get started here: docs.microsoft.com/.../accounting-distributions
Once you have reviewed all the information let us know if your questions have been answered.
I just go through this link and get back to you.
I did not understand this blog.
I think the best way to see and understand this feature is doing some tests.
Do you have a demo/test environment available?
Then create PO's, have a look at the distribution, change the findim and post it.
Just try to manipuate some stuff in the distribution form and always check the voucher generate and then you will understand what this feature can do for you.
