The cursor will be positioned the Code (1) field. You must first create a code (up to 4 characters) describing this code, i.e. FFDE for Furniture & Fixtures Depreciation. The Refer(ence) (2) field is the same as the one in the Journal Posting module. RollMaster recommends typing “RECJRN” here to identify it as a recurring journal entry on the Account Detail Report. In the Comment (3) and Comment 2 fields, describe the recurring journal entry just as you would in the Journal Posting module. Click the Save button when this entry is complete. The data you just entered will then prompt in the fields below as follows:
The Seq(uence) (1) field will default to “0001” and the cursor will be positioned in the Acct Num field.

You can change the D/C (4) field and then add a value in the Amount (5) field to complete this line. When all data is correct, click the Add button. Continue adding recurring journal entry lines until all lines that make up the recurring entry are entered and your debits equal your credits. Once this is done, click the Save button to save the Recurring Journal entry.
Once you have added at least one Recurring Journal entry, you will see it listed in the Set Up Recurring Entries screen as follows:
To Edit (1) the header for a Recurring Entry, highlight the line in the screen above and Double Cick to pull up the Add Recurring Journal screen. Please note: you cannot edit the journal entries that make up a Recurring Entry, only the header data you see in the screenshot above. To make changes to an entry, delete it and re-enter with the correct data. To Delete (1) a Recurring Entry, highlight the line in the screen above and Right Click to display the Delete option. Click Delete and the Recurring Entry will be removed from the screen.
When you are ready to process a Recurring Entry, select the Post Recurring Entries option from the “Choose One” menu displayed above. The system will prompt a Post Recurring Entries screen as follows:

You will then highlight and double-click (3) on each line you would like to select for processing. As lines are selected, a “Y” (4) will appear in the Selected column. As a reminder, you can change the Posting Period field and the Posting Date field where applicable prior to clicking the Post Selected button to process. The Recurring Journal entries will appear on the General Journal and will each have their own sequence number. There is no reversing entry option in this module. To reverse a recurring journal entry, make the applicable reversing entries in the Journal Posting module.
