How to generate simulated accounting entries in Sage X3 Version 11

By | May 4, 2018

In Sage X3 we come across issues related to accounting effects not getting posted correctly. Issues such as account missing and unbalanced journals. To rectify such issues we need to find the accounting effects which are getting triggered during the posting of any journal.

To debug this Sage X3 provides an inbuilt functionality “Simulated Entry Generation” which simulates the entry before actually posting the journal.

Navigate: Setup >> Users >> Users >> Parameter Tab >> Accounting Interface

  1. Yes – If error generates a simulation entry if there is any error during the generation of the journal.
  2. Yes – always generates a simulation entry for all the journals.

Now for all the journal entries which will generate an error simulated transaction will be displayed with its accounting details prior to its posting.
