Use Recurring Journal Voucher for Periodic Routine Purposes

This procedure is used to generate vouchers for period end or year-end closure (for example, for different types of accruals) by using pre-defined templates, so-called standard vouchers.

The procedure consists of three main steps:

1. Select period and the standard voucher to be used as a template for the entry.

2. Modify the standard voucher, if necessary.

3. At the end of the period/year, generate transactions in the system for the vouchers entered.
