Creating Accounting Entries

    Click the Student Financials link.

    Step 1
  2. Click the GL Interface link.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Generate Accounting Entries link.

    Click the Add a New Value tab.

    Step 4
  5. A Run Control ID is an identifier that, when paired with your User ID, uniquely identifies the process you are running. The Run Control ID defines parameters that are used when a process is run. This ensures that when a process runs in the background, the system does not prompt you for additional values.


    Enter the desired information into the Run Control ID field. Enter

     a valid value

    Step 9
  10. Click in the Journal Template field.

    Step 10

  12. Click in the Term field.

    Step 12
  13. You want to generate accounting entries for Fall 2007, term 0590.


    Enter the desired information into the Term field. Enter

     a valid value

    Step 13
  14. Click the Manual Batch Publish link to access the Batch Publish page, where you can run the Manual Batch Publish process to publish accounting line information to PeopleSoft Financials.


    This link appears only if your system interfaces with PeopleSoft Financials 8.4.

    Step 14
  15. At this point, you would continue to run the Generate Accounting Entries process just as you would any other PeopleSoft Enterprise Process Scheduler process.


    Refer to the Running Reports module for an example of running a process.

    Step 15

You have successfully created accounting entries using the GL Interface process.
