Correct dimension values on G/L Entry (from 1 to multiple)

Posted on by 3
Hello,
 
I'm having an issue on more than 1 customer regarding correcting dimensions after posting the document.
 
EXAMPLE:
* I posted a document with one line, amount=1.000 (let's say on G/L Account 6221) - dimension REGION = North
 
After posting it, I got the information that  those 1.000 must be divided by two different regions (North= 800 | South = 200).
I only got this info after the accounting period was closed.
 
Is there a way to correct it? Or a workaround that does that?

    Valentin is right, this feature can only change the Dimension, not the amount. If you still need to adjust the amount, you need to reopen the closed accounting period to adjust it, which I personally do not recommend.
     
     
    Thanks.

    If one entry for $1000 with the dimension North exists, then I don't believe Dimension Corrections can be used to change the dimensions so $800 are for North and $200 are for South. Dimension Corrections can only be used to change the dimension on the entire $1000 amount.

    Hi, I think you can try the Dimension corrections (for G/L Entries) feature, which will not add new GL Entries and will not cause any problems when you reopen a closed account period. (Please test it in a test environment of course)
     
     
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks.

    I don't believe there is a way to correct it without posting in the closed accounting period. However, Business Central doesn't have a hard accounting period close so you can simply open the posting date restrictions and post in the closed period. Its fine because the fix is just an in and out, the overall amounts are not changing. You have a few options for the correction:
     
    1. reverse the transaction and repost it with the correct dimension split.
    2. use a general journal to book an adjusting entry to re-allocate the dimension split i.e. credit account 6221 for $1000 with the dimension north and debit 800 to north and 200 to south.
    3. instead of using a general journal you can use the recuring general journal with the Recurring Method BD Balance by Dimension. More info - https://community.dynamics.com/blogs/post/?postid=74cd475f-baf9-43a6-a85f-5a7eb9e431fb
