Close Year Provisional - Opening Balances in P&L Accounts
Close Year Provisional (tfgld6201m000) should calculate & post opening balances for Balance Sheet accounts in the new year.
After client ran Close Year Provisional, Trial Balance Report in the new year has opening balances in P&L accounts equal to of the ending balance of the accounts in the old year.
I took a quick look and confirmed that the gld history tables for the new year now have opening balances in all accounts, including P&L. The opening balance of P&L accounts is their ending balance from the old year. I only spot checked but balance sheet accounts appear to have correct provisional opening balances. Opening balance of the retained earning account has been updated correctly (equals unclosed ending balance of prior year plus net P&L).
This is an old system (Triton 3) and may not have all patches that had been available. But it hasn't been "updated" recently and to the best of the client's knowledge, provisional close never had this result before.
I'll dial in this weekend and look in greater detail, but I wonder if anyone has encountered this before.
Fiscal year has 12 periods (no correction period), fiscal year runs July to June.
Ideas? Suggestions? Anyone else remember Triton 3?
