General Ledger Q&A: Renumber General Ledger Account

March 2022    Tags: ,

While I was running a report, I noticed that an account was given the wrong account number. Is there a way to change the account number without losing any journal entries?

This can be accomplished by running the Renumber GLS Account utility. All associated journal entries, deposit slips, and recurring entries are also renumbered.

To renumber an account

  1. In the Quick Launch, search for and select “Renumber Account.”
  2. In the Old Account Number field, select the account you want to renumber.
  3. In the New Account Number field, enter the new account number you want for the account.
  4. Click OK.

Note: Renumbering an account in GL will automatically update the references to that account in Tabs3 Billing, AP, and Trust integration settings. However, GL report definitions and GL Report Writer reports that use the Old Account Number will not be updated to use the New Account number.
