When setting up combining accounts, you first need to have a Chart of Accounts mask that accommodates locations and > or departments.

To create combining accounts the Chart of Accounts window must be active.

  2. From the Edit menu or the F3 or right-click context menu, choose Enter Combining Accounts.
  3. Click the Add button.
  4. Enter an unused account number that only uses the core (C or A or #) numbers from the Chart of Accounts mask.
  5. Choose an account type from the Type field.
  6. Enter a Description for the combining account in the Description field.
  7. Select a Tax Code from the drop-down list, if applicable.
  8. Click Enter.
  9. Repeat until you have all of your client's combining accounts entered.
  10. Click Done when you are finished entering Combining accounts.
