If you added journals in Workpapers, here's where you update your MAS, Accounts or AO Classic General Ledger with the new data.

Export your journal file from Client Accounting and import it into your ledger.

To export and import the journal file
  1. Go to the client’s Client Accounting > Trial Balance (Workpapers) tab and click a period in the Select Period section.
  2. On the Tasks bar, click Open Period. The table for the period appears.
  3. On the Tasks bar, click Create Journal Export File. The Confirm Exporting Journals dialogue appears.
  4. Click Yes. The Export Journals window appears.
  5. Browse to the location for the exported journal file and click Save.
  6. Click OK. The exported journals file is created.
  7. Import the journal file to MAS, Accounts or AO GL:
    • If you use MAS or Accounts, see your ledger's product help.
    • If you use a version of MYOB AO Classic earlier than v16.0.4, or your AO Classic isn't integrated with your ledger, see the product help for your version.

    • If you use MYOB AO Classic v16.0.4 or later integrated with your ledger, click Post in Client Accounting. A confirmation dialogue appears.

      The adjusted journals are posted back to the general ledger for AO Classic with Workpapers as the Reference and the end of the period as the Date. An export is created on your local machine.

      For AO Classic users, check that the Employee Code is the same in MYOB AO Classic and MYOB AE. If the Employee Code is different, you'll need to change the code.

      To check the Employee Code in AO Classic

      Go to Tools > Options > Employees tab and, in the Name table, select your name. Check that what's in the Employee Code field matches the code in AE.

      To check the Employee Code in AE

      On Contacts drop-down list, select Employees. Search for your name and note what's in the Code column.
