In the Batch List select Settings next to File in the top left of the form and select the “Show Post Form” option.

When selecting the Post button in Batch List the Post Batches form will be initiated.

Product Tips


Requirement: To distribute a single bank statement entry in RecXpress to multiple GL Accounts when generating a RecXpress batch.

Solution: Use the Distribution Sets in Cashbook to distribute a single bank statement entry across multiple GL accounts during RecXpress batch generation.

If the bank statement entry amount is equal to the total amount of the detail lines that make up the Distribution Code, the entry amount will be disbursed to the various lines that make up the Distribution Code, using the amount setup for each detail line within the Distribution Code.

If the bank statement entry amount exceeds the total of the amounts of the lines that make up the Distribution Code, the surplus amount will be allocated to the distribution line which has Yes in the Use for Adjustment column.

If there are no lines with the value Yes in the Use for Adjustment column the surplus amount will be allocated to the last line in the Distribution Set.
