When a GENERAL LEDGER UPDATE is processed a journal is created for each account that has postings to it during the month. Some transactions are posted indirectly, for example sales are entered to customer accounts but these values are posted to the general ledger sales account(s). See Utilities - Modules for details about specifying the various control accounts.

All of the details that are found in this report can also be found during a GL account enquiry.
