AP Module beginning balance changed

editSubscribe (0) ShareShare
Posted on by 5


There is a variance between AP module and General Ledger since March.

Run the Reconcile to GL report and found the issue, see picture below.

For some reason, April AP module beginning balance changed from March AP module ending balance.

Will anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you,

    Thank you Jeff.

    I do have a variance between AP module and ledger.

    Is there any other methods to locate the variance?

    Hello Jian,

    If your materials are pulled from the Excel sheet report created by the Reconcile to GL tool in Dynamics GP it would not be unusual to have a balance difference for varied range dates.

    This is because the beginning/ending balances in the Reconcile to GL tool are not static values found in Dynamics GP SQL tables, they are only best estimates calculated from the GL/AP distributions present for the date range in question.

    It is because of this design that the Excel report should not be used not used for official reporting purposes but for transaction comparison with default Trial Balance reporting in reconciliation activity only.

    Note if you see differences in the balance values in standard Trial Balance reporting based on the date ranges it would be of concern, but not for the Excel reporting acordingly.

    Best Regards,
