Import procedure

In Practice Solution or Practice CS, the command to export a journal entry to CSA creates a file named G99999A0.GLT, where A represents the CSA period in the current year to which transactions will be posted (A=January, B=February, and so on).

Transactions are posted based on the export file name and will post only to the latest GL year to which the client has ever been moved in CSA regardless of the actual date on the transaction. Once you have advanced your GL period to a new fiscal year, the imported JEs will post to the appropriate period (as specified by the import file name) in that latest fiscal year even if you have subsequently moved your current GL period back to a prior fiscal year.

In CSA, choose Utilities > Import Practice Journal Entries. The journal entries are posted automatically following the import.
