Note: To avoid losing real data, during testing/setup, back up the live general ledger data in your accounting software prior to importing any new test GL entries from Avionté.

Generate a GL Feed

  1. Navigate to Main Menu Back Office > Weekly Process.

  2. Click GL on the Shortcuts menu. The GL Feed Form displays.

  3. In the Date Range section of the GL Feed Form, enter a Start Date and End Date based on accounting period.

  • OPTIONAL: To clear prior journal entries, click Delete Journal Entry

    • Journal entries for the dates listed in the Start Date and End Date will be deleted.

    • If the journal has consistently balanced in previous accounting periods, there is no need to remove the journal entries.

  • OPTIONAL: Select the specific items in GL Entity that will be included in the GL Feed.

    Item Description
    GL Column Select the account columns that need to be included. The default setting includes all columns. Unselecting a column could cause the GL groups to not balance.
    Branch Select which branch/branches to include. To separate export files by branch, select one branch at a time and generate/export each result.  Creating separate feeds for each branch may also result in an imbalance in the GL groups.
    Entry Item This selection list does not impact the GL Feed or the Journal Entry results.

  • Click Generate Journal Entry

  • All journal entries from the dates selected will be created on the Journal Entry Tab

  • Verify the journal entries balance per group in the Journal Entry tab (Debit Amount = Credit Amount)

  • Return to the GL Action tab.
  • Ensure the Start Date and End Date are still listed correctly.

  • Click Browse and select a folder/location where the GL Feed will be saved.

  • Click Generate GL Feed. The feed will generate journal entries created for the selected date range with mapped accounts.

  • Proceed with import within the external accounting software.
