Misc Distribution Code

Specify the miscellaneous distribution code (from AR Misc Distribution Codes) by which this distribution will be tracked. Value will default as follows:

From AR Invoice Entry

  • Automatic Distribution (Create Miscellaneous Distributions on Invoice box is checked for customer in AR Customers) - During batch validation, the system will create a single distribution per applicable invoice using the miscellaneous distribution code assigned to the contract ( contract-related invoices) or customer (non-contract invoices or contract invoices when no miscellaneous distribution code is assigned to the contract). If no miscellaneous distribution code is found, no distribution record is created.

Note: You can modify auto-generated distributions, if necessary, before posting the batch.
  • Manual Distribution (Create Miscellaneous Distributions on Invoice box is unchecked for customer in AR Customers) - Defaults the miscellaneous distribution code assigned to the contract (contract-related invoices) or customer (non-contract invoices or contract invoices when no miscellaneous distribution code is assigned to the contract). If no miscellaneous distribution code is found, defaults as null.

Note: Default will only occur by double-clicking in this field, which opens the Miscellaneous Distributions form, or by skipping this field and entering a value in the Dist Date field.

From AR Cash Receipts

  • Automatic Distribution (Create Miscellaneous Distributions on Payment box is checked for customer in AR Customers) - During batch validation, the system will create a single distribution record for each invoice during batch validation, using the miscellaneous distribution code assigned to the contract in JC Contracts (contract-related invoices) or customer in AR Customers (non-contract invoices or contract invoices when a miscellaneous distribution code is not assigned to the contract).

Note: When using this feature, you will be unable to edit generated distributions. If you need to modify a generated distribution, you will need to turn off this feature, make the necessary changes, then post the batch. For step-by-step instructions, click here.
  • Manual Distribution (Create Miscellaneous Distributions on Payment box is checked for customer in AR Customers) - Defaults the miscellaneous distribution code assigned to the customer. If no miscellaneous distribution code is found, defaults as null.
