The Back Out GL Interface process enables you to reverse the most recent run of the GL Interface process. When you run the Back Out GL Interface, it effectively deletes the accounting lines created in the Accounting Line table PS_SF_ACCTG_LN for the most recent process instance and resets the corresponding rows in PS_ITEM_SF as not having been processed by the GL Interface. The back out process makes it possible to correct errors before information is sent to the general ledger.

 

Use caution when running the Back Out GL Interface process because backing out accounting entries from Student Financials that have already been posted in PeopleSoft General Ledger would lead to out-of-balance conditions between Student Financials and PeopleSoft General Ledger. Only run the Back Out GL Interface process if you are sure that the accounting lines have not already been transferred to PeopleSoft General Ledger. If the accounting lines have been transferred to PeopleSoft General Ledger and you proceed with the Back Out GL Interface process, you have to manually reverse the corresponding entries in PeopleSoft General Ledger.

 

In this topic, you will run the Back Out GL Interface process to back out recently created accounting lines.
