Subledgers Subledger Tables and Tips Mary Canan Bellevue Community College Teresa Feltmann Center for Information Services BAR 101 April 21, 2006 Renton Technical College
Subledgers Subledgers can be established for any general ledger to capture year-to-date and, optionally, biennium-to-date general ledger activity.
Subledgers Subledgers are maintained on the Subledger Table (GA1078) and assigned to the general ledgers on the General Ledger Table (GA1031) with the posting routine controlled on the Transaction Code Table (GA1093).
Subledgers Go to the CIS website for documentation on FMS Tables: Applications- FMS FMS Document Index FMS Module &Functions FMS Control Tables
Tables Control Tables Subledger Table GA1078 General Ledger Table GA1031 Transaction Code Table GA1093
GA1078 GA SUBLEDGER TABLE FYR=05-06 SUBLEDGER CODE  SUBLEDGER TITLE [AR SUBLEDGER ] SUBLEDGER STATUS [A] SUBLEDGER SELECTION INDICATOR [ A] SUBLEDGER PURGE INDICATOR [ 9] SUBLEDGER LIFE INDICATOR [N] RVSN DATE [ ] 9005:INQUIRY complete
GA1078 Subledger Purge Indicator is controlled on this table by the following values- The charge and the payment must equal zero by the following parameters 0 Do not purge 1 FND or APPR-INDX, GL & DOC-NUM 2 FND or APPR-INDX, GL & ID-NUM-TYP (CUST-ID) 3 FND or APPR-INDX, GL, ID-NUM-TYP & DOC-NUM 4 REIM-CD & CAMPUS (on ORG TABLE) 5 FND or APPR-INDX, GL & ID-NUM-TYP (CUST-ID) 6 FND or APPR-INDX, GL, ID-NUM-TYP (CUST-ID), CHRG-ID & CUST-REF 7 FND or APPR-INDX, GL, ID-NUM-TYP (CUST-ID), CUST-REF & YRQ 8 Developed for Customer Accounts use FND or APPR-INDX, GL, ID-NUM-TYP (CUST-ID), CHRG-ID, DOC-NUM, PRG-ORG & CUST-REF 9 FND or APPR-INDX, GL, ID-NUM-TYP (CUST-ID), DOC-NUM & PRG-ORG
GA1031 General Ledger Table tie the subledger code from GA1078 to the general ledger. Examples GL 1312 Subledger Code = 09 GL 1319 Subledger Code = 07 GL 5192 Subledger Code = 05 GL 6410 Subledger Code = 01 GL 6505 Subledger Code = 02

Jobs & Reports: See the CIS website for documentation on Job Scheduling: Applications- CIS Job Scheduling Index FMS - Select job category BAxxxxJ BMxxxxJ FMxxxxJ GAxxxxJ MMxxxxJ PMxxxxJ FGxxxx
Job Scheduling for Subledgers 1.Daily posting updates subledger 2.FG009M ~ monthly purge after month end –GA1305J job runs purge –GA1314J Purge Report (Note: GA1305J job purges all subledger – their isn’t a selection criteria)
Subledger Reports Job GA1337J to generate subledger reports College Option ~ 01 = Encumbrance 02 = Reimbursable (see GA3236J) 03 = Credit Memo 04 = Accounts Payable 05 = Deferred Revenue 06 = Tuition Distribution (see GA2102J) 07 = Payroll Handwrites (1399 GL) 09 = Accounts Receivable (see BM 1781J, BM 1780J & BM 1711J) 10 = Travel Advance
TIPS AR Subledgers Run AR subledger reports a minimum of monthly AR Subledgers – BM 1781J for Detail 1.Change Customer ID # frequently if you are having issues with purging. 2.Organize your Customer ID#. 3.Review purge criteria 4.Schedule BM1780J - AR Trial Balance for an overview tool. 5.Schedule BM1711J – to monitor the long term outstanding and problem receivables. 6.Student Social Security numbers can not be corrected to the SID #. Call CIS for a manual correction.
Tips for Payroll/Travel Advance Run GA1337J Subledgers 07 and 10 – minimum monthly Payroll – issues are normally between Social Security with an (E-employee) versus (S-student) you will have to manually correct these with a GAT sheet through screen GA1103. Verify monthly that handwrites are clearing- talk to the payroll department for all outstanding handwrites to verify which payroll will clear them. (the B payroll will always carry over to the next month) Travel Advances – monitor to verify travel expense reimbursements are returning timely. If using transaction code 077 (GL1383) for the travel advance use 078 for the travel expense-this will clear the advance in one entry.
Tips for Deferred Revenue 1.Review debt types- Table BM1020 – all fees do not have to defer – such as auxiliary funds. 2.Review fee codes – Table BM1001 – verify that fee codes that do not defer have the appropriate debt type. 3.Talk to cashiers regarding the Year Quarter of their cashiering screens for non-registration activity. 4.Run the reverse deferred revenue job FG034Aas soon as possible after year end. Must be run for all quarters separately 5. Run the purge report GA1305J after July ME. 6.Run Subledger GA1337J Code 05 to find items that did not purge.
Credit Memos Run GA1337J at minimum quarterly. Especially as you near year end. Request a check from the vendor whenever possible. Make sure that vendor payments are not being paid when there is an outstanding credit memo. These transactions are normal in the bookstore operation.
Accounts Payable Run GA1337J – subledger code 04. Are you utilizing this subledger? Check GA1031 for ledger 6505 and If it has the code 04 it is updating an accounts payable subledger. If it has the code 02 it is updating a reimbursable subledger.
College Defined Subledgers Examples of where you may want to establish your own unique subledger 22Customer Deposits 23Dormant Checks Set-up on Tables: GA1078; GA1031; GA1093
Balancing Balance Monthly – The key to a clean close/open is not to have issues in the subledgers
Monthly Run Reports Designate a person responsible for monitoring the reports Develop procedures for a high level review Look for credit amounts in the AR Subledger Look at the aging reports Scan the Prog/Org Trial Balance Report
Monthly Run the SMART GA1409 checklist. Correct entries each month The next day run the SMART GA1409 checklist to verify your correction fixed the error. (Be sure to upload current data)
Tricks with Accounts Receivable ID Assign CUST-ID numbers to assist your quick reviews Rotate large agency numbers quarterly –IE: DVR-A561; DVR-A562 Assign a number by staff responsible - PC-SBCTC - FS-DSHS
Establish Quick DATAX for balances We can Share Datax files through CIS. Your IT person will need to be involved. Samples available
Close/Open The General Ledgers with a GL open indicator of a “S” on the GA1031 table will open from the Subledgers How do they get out of balance? –Manual Adjusting entries sent to SBCTC during closing –Using incorrect transaction codes.
Transaction codes for Opening Entries Current Year Transaction Codes post to the subledger Opening Transaction Codes are as follows: A__ do not post to subledger R __ post to the subledger S __ do not post to the subledger
Prog/Org Trial Balance GA1335 Example of when S__ transaction codes maybe necessary. Accounts Receivables have purged – you have a GL1312 balance off setting in two different prog/org but nothing on the AR subledger. Use S05 and S05R (they must be in the same fund) to correct.
Correct a manual closing entry Some manual entries can be reversed by SBCTC. If they are reflected on your opening adjusting entries you must enter them in the new year: FundGLGA1409YRENDDifference ,000 2, ,250,000-1,250, Entry in new year FMS by General Accounting Batch: GA1103 (If receivable is still Outstanding correct it as follows: TCFundGLAmount R / (this will post to the subledger) A01R / If the receivable is no longer outstanding— R / (this will post to the subledger) 150R / (this will post to the subledger) A01R /
When all else fails – call CIS Customer Support Things that happen that you can’t fix. –Social Security Numbers in the AR subledger versus student ID numbers –Encumbrance/Liquidation that get caught between fiscal years
