While many transaction types can be entered into specialized windows in Peachtree,
there will always be a need to have a general journal to be able to record entries that
do not fit into specialized fields. Such entries include infrequent transaction types
as well as adjusting entries. This topic shows you how to use the General Journal Entry window
to record an entry into the general journal in Peachtree.
To record an entry using Peachtree's general journal window, open the Company Navigation Center in Peachtree
and select the General Journal Entry link.
This opens the General Journal Entry window where you can enter the details of the
journal entry into Peachtree. The following screenshot and reference table show
step-by-step instructions on how to enter information into
the General Journal Entry window in Peachtree. Note that each step is assigned a reference
number to help you identify the appropriate field or icon in the screenshot of the
General Journal Entry window.
If you are completing the Peachtree Practice Set,
you only use the General Journal Entry window to record end-of-month adjusting entries.
Remember, all other transaction types should be recorded in their appropriate window.
This is because these other windows are designed to record the details relating to the specific
customer, vendor or inventory item used in the transaction. These details are not able to
be captured in the general journal, so are unable to be tracked if the transaction is
recorded in the general journal.
