Follow These Steps

  1. Start 'Transaction Work File. Print' (GLS970).

  2. Select any transaction statuses to exclude from the report:

    • 0 = Active; General Ledger not updated. This status normally refers to transactions in interrupted jobs.
    • 1 = Preliminarily allocated. This status refers to transactions that are preliminarily allocated in certain programs and have not updated the General Ledger yet. Such transactions occur, for example, when you are working with automatic reconciliation of bank statements in the Automatic Bank Statement module or with accounts allocation. The transactions will be released when the proposal is approved.
    • 8 = Erroneous transaction. This status refers to transactions with incorrect values such as invalid accounting string, accounting date, or voucher number.
    • 9 = General Ledger updated but no journal is printed. This status refers to transactions where the program for printout of accounting journals (GLS041) for some reason has been interrupted. Currently, those transactions can only be corrected by Product Support.
  3. If applicable, enter an optional report text. Press Enter.
