Set up Override Offset Accounts for Standard Items

If you require separate offset cost accounts for standard items, you can set up override offset accounts by standard item for each department in SM Departments.

When you post miscellaneous work completed lines that reference a standard item, the system adds an offsetting cost entry to GL using the override account defined here. If no override offset is found for a standard item, the system uses the override offset accounts defined by cost type (if applicable) or the standard offset account defined for the department.
