Fiscal Calendar Maintenance

The Fiscal Calendar Maintenance screen displays all fiscal years presently set up in the current company. Entries made here control certain defaults and virtually every transaction updated to the General Ledger.

Normally, no changes are required in this screen. If changes are made, the dates on any historical transactions will not be changed.

Warning: Do not change the fiscal calendar once data has been entered into the software. Information in the General Ledger could become corrupted.
Note: Note regarding first-time users: If this screen is accessed before the fiscal calendar has been created in General Ledger Installation, the list box will be empty and only the New Year button will be enabled. This button can be used to open the Add New Fiscal Year window and you will be prompted for the first fiscal year, as you would be in the General Ledger Installation screen.
