This can be used for most Transaction Types.
1. Gather the following information: the transaction source (i.e. API, JV), session ID, and document number that you want to copy.
2. Create a New Session for the chosen transaction source. Click the Start button.
3. On a blank transaction entry screen, click the Copy Posted Document button.
4. Copy Posted Document Screen will pop up.
5. Manually Type in the Original Session ID or Use the dropdown arrow to select the Original Session ID that contains the document you want to copy.
6. Use the dropdown arrow to select the original Document number that you want to copy.
7. If you are in the process of correcting a mistake, you will want the Copy to Document ID to be exactly the same document number (or invoice number) as the original, and you will want to leave “Use Original Effective Date” checked. You will likely leave “Use Original Document Date” checked as well. That way, the copied document, the original document, and any reversal document with exactly the same document number will be grouped together in the general ledger after you post.
8. If you are just using the original document as a template, and you really do want the new copy to have a new document number and a new effective date, go ahead and make those changes in this screen. In this case, you would uncheck “Use Original Effective Date” and enter a new effective date of your choice. Whether you use a new document date is up to you as that date does not affect the general ledger.
9. Click OK to finish the copy process and review the transaction. You can correct any coding, dates or amounts on the document needed.
10. Save the document, save the session, and post the session.
