Payment and Cash ReceiptsIf a bank account has the same currency code entered as the LCY code we will force the Bank Account Currency Code onto the Cash Receipts Journal line to ensure the line can still be posted.

Statement IntelligenceOn the account statement line new fields called "Cust. Document Type" and "Cust. Document no." have been added. Here you can enter a document type and no. When this is done the system will check to see if the document is open. If it is open we create a line in the cash receipt journal of type Payment that will apply to the entered document no. and have the bank account as balance account. After posting of the line the system will then be able to automatically reconcile the new bank ledger entry. If the customer document no. entered is found to be closed the system will try to locate the bank ledger entry that was created at the time and set that bank ledger entry to be reconciled. If the system finds a closed bank account ledger entry on another bank account than the one currently being reconciled the system will give a message stating so.13330
