Restrict users access of modifying the GL Imported batches in Sage 300

By | October 8, 2015

General ledger is one of the primary components of accounting. Hence G/L Batches are crucial activity as it enables the user to keep control over all the transactions of any enterprise. In some cases G/L batches are created as a non- Sage ERP Accpac program i.e. imported batches & you want to restrict the users to modify this type of batches.

In Sage 300, you can restrict the users to modify the imported (batches created in a non-Sage ERP Accpac program, and then imported) by doing the G/L setup.

New Stuff: Auto Retention Amount Configuration in Sage ERP

Please fallow the setup to make the changes in G/L Setup:

Go to the General Ledger à G/L Setup à Options:


Now go to the Edit Imported Entries & select “No Edit” option from the drop down.


Hence this will restrict the users to modify the imported GL batches.

You can also select “Fiscal Period. Year. Trans Date” which allows users to only modify the Fiscal Period & Transaction dates of imported GL batches.

With this option in SAGE 300 you could assign appropriate rights to users & also with the help of this option you can maintain the security at GL batch which will be very helpful in maintaining the appropriate accounting with SAGE ERP Solutions.
