Create Filing Types for Archiving of Ledger Transactions

This document explains how you define various types of general ledger and sub-ledger transactions that can be archived.


Types of archiving transactions are defined, controlling how the resulting balances are posted (per period or only at the last period covered). For balance sheet and profit/loss archiving, they also control which accounting dimensions to disregard in the archiving routine.

Each type may be connected to a filing template for individual archiving of selected transactions instead of a general archiving.

The filing types are displayed automatically in 'General Ledger. File' (GLS800). Select the matching filing type to start the archiving.

The CSTYTAB parameter table (constant FILT) is updated.
