Account entry instructions are properties assigned to a pay element so that its transactions receive the correct account entry.
The account entry can be defined for the pay element on the H panel in 'Pay Element. Open' (PRS040). It can be specified manually during entry, retrieved from the employee file, retrieved from other transactions, etc. Regardless of the method, any control codes indicating where the account entry will be retrieved from must always be activated for the pay element.
For more details about account entry, see the document listed in the See also section.
Pay transactions need to be recorded when accounting transactions must be generated for the general ledger.
