How to Use User-Defined Fields in GP General Journal Entry

New User-Defined Field Feature in GP 18.3 Release

This is another feature added in the GP 18.3 release.  In the General Ledger Transaction Entry window, there are now two new user-defined fields. When users enter transactions into the General Ledger, they can now add additional information regarding the journal entry.

Labels for the user-defined fields are at the bottom of the General Ledger Setup window.  Go to the Financial > Setup > Financial > General Ledger.

The maximum field length for the user-defined labels is 15 characters. The length of the user-defined field values is 30 characters.

Once you’ve defined your fields, you’ll see the new labels in the General Ledger Transaction Entry window.

These user-defined fields are available in the Financial Account Transactions SmartLists and they’ve been added to the following reports:

  • Edit list
  • Posting journal
