New Analytical Accounting (AA) Features for GP 2013 R2!

By Adam Gaber

Hello AA users!  I am excited to tell you about some great new AA features in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2.

1. AA Pre-Activation Check:  This is a great new feature for new users of AA or current users who need to activate AA in an additional company.  This check will warn you if there are any duplicate records that would cause errors when attempting activation.  In prior versions, users would get an error if duplicates existed after starting the activation process.  Activation can take quite some time and the error message can occur well into the process.  This will save you a lot of time in identifying and correcting any duplicates before starting the activation process.

 2. Copy and Paste from Excel to the GJ Transaction Entry Window:  Another great new feature in this release is the ability to copy and paste a new General Journal entry with Analytical Accounting Alias information from Excel if AA is activated.  This is only available in the General Journal Transaction entry window.  To avoid getting the warning message (Analytical Transaction Entry window has not been opened even once), you will want to be sure to validate any AA transactions prior to saving or posting.  Please refer back to the new GL feature blog for more information on the GL functionality.  This should be a great time saver for those of you who have these entries saved in Excel. 

 3. AA Default Codes from Invoice:  This new feature will automatically default AA transaction dimension codes from the invoice for Payables, POP, Receivables, and SOP account distributions that exist on both the invoice and applied payment or receipt.  Please note that AA codes will not automatically default from the original invoice for Returns or Credit Memos.

These are just three of the many great new features in R2.  Get your upgrade scheduled now!  Please follow the links below for the full details about these and many other new features in R2.  Enjoy!
