Created by Posting accounts are created when: 

  • An account number not defined in the system is posted to as a result of a setting in one of the modules outside General Ledger. You cannot post directly to an account that is not already defined. 
  • If you have incorrectly defined a control account in a parameter. This usually occurs when a mask was used.
  • If an auto due to/from account or other account required by a setup mask has not been defined.
  • If an incorrect Closing ID was chosen when Posting Revenue to Expense in the Year End Processing.

    Created by Posting accounts are active accounts and do not have attributes.

    If the Created by Posting account is a correct account number, you will need to change the description of the Created by Posting account to the correct description for the account number, and add a position one attribute.  Additional attributes may also need to be added.

    If the created by posting account is not correct, and should not have been posted to, you will need to make a manual journal entry to transfer the funds out of the incorrect Created by Posting account and into the correct account.  Then, change the status of the Created by Posting account to inactive.
