How to Disable Posting Journals in GP

GP Tip: Disabling GP Posting Journals

Ever wonder how to turn off those pesky Posting Journals that no one ever looks at, … or that you print to the screen or cancel?

Here’s how to do it!

  • Go to Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Setup > Posting > Posting
  • Select a Series and an Origin
  • The list of Reports that appear will all be related to whatever Series and Origin you select
  • Uncheck in the Print column to not print the report at all
  • Or choose an option in the Send To columns to set a default destination
  • The question mark column means to Ask Each Time
  • The column with the monitor icon means to always print to the screen
  • The column with the printer icon means to always print to the printer
  • The file folder icon means to always print to a file.  If you choose this option, you will then choose Type of File, File Location and Append or Replace the file.  (Tip:  this is not usually a very helpful option as most GP reports do not look in any of these formats.)
  • NOTE:  Be careful not to change any of the other options in this window as this will affect how transactions post to the general ledger!
  • Click on Save when finished
