View Journal Entry Details – Manual Journal Entries

At this point in your inquiry, you may want to view the individual journal entries that make up the balance on the account. To do this, we will use another option on the Account Inquiry screen.

At the end of this lesson, you will be able to call up and view journal detail for a manual journal entry.

“Batch” column: the “Batch” names for all manual journal entries are formatted according to the standard RIT naming convention.
“Journal” column: each journal must have a unique name. Repeating the batch name is acceptable however you may choose to be more specific in designating your name.
“Source” see below.
“Entered Currency” transactions will always be reported in US Dollars only.
“Line” is the position of that specific journal entry which is part of that specific batch.
“Entered Debit” and “Entered Credit” will depend on the type of transaction.


Refer to the “Source” column. In this example all of these journal entries were prepared by a manual process. “Manual” means a person with journal entry responsibility prepared a journal entry directly in the application. “ACTIVE PAY” these entries are a part of a large pool of data that was imported from another database into the Oracle General Ledger. “ANAPOLI” is also the same process as “Manual” entries however the preparer has a unique identifier. We will cover subledger journal entries a little later in the class.
