Assigning Values for Accounts
You can specify your accounts in the GL_INTERFACE table in one of two ways: segment specification or code combination ID specification. Segment Specification Assign an account value for each segment that you enabled in your General Ledger application. For example, if you enabled four account segments, you need to first determine into which columns of the GL_INTERFACE table you should enter data. This can be done by looking at the Column field of each segment in the Key Flexfield Segments window. In this example we find that: Segment 1 corresponds to the column SEGMENT1 Segment 2 corresponds to the column SEGMENT2 Segment 3 corresponds to the column SEGMENT4 Segment 4 corresponds to the column SEGMENT5 Note: The column named SEGMENT3 is not used. Given the above information above, you should load the data as follows: Data for Flexfield Segment 1 Segment 2 Segment 3 Segment 4 Load Into: GL_INTERFACE.SEGMENT1 GL_INTERFACE.SEGMENT2 GL_INTERFACE.SEGMENT4 GL_INTERFACE.SEGMENT5

Load valid enabled segment values for your enabled segments into the GL_INTERFACE table. The segment values must already be defined in your General Ledger application. For example, value 01 is not the same as value 1. You can specify Maximum Size and Right-justify Zero-fill Numbers when you define your value sets in the Value Sets form. Maximum Size indicates the maximum width of each segment value that Journal Import expects. Right-justify Zero-fill Numbers indicates whether your account should right justify and zero-fill numbers when you enter values for a particular value set. If you have the Right-justify Zero-fill Numbers option enabled, and your Maximum Size is three, then your segment value would be 001. However, if your Maximum Size is four, then your segment value would be 0001. Journal Import does not allow null values in enabled segments. Code Combination ID Specification

Alternatively, you can enter a code combination ID to identify your account segments. You can find a list of valid account code combinations and their corresponding code combination IDs in the GL_CODE_COMBINATIONS table. If you want Journal Import to use the code combination ID to create your journal entries, enter the appropriate code combination ID in the CODE_COMBINATION_ID column of the GL_INTERFACE table and do not enter values in the SEGMENT1 through SEGMENT30 columns. If you enter values for your account segments in the SEGMENT1 through SEGMENT30 columns and enter a value in the CODE_COMBINATION_ID column, Journal Import uses the Segment column values to create your journal entries. If you enter segment values for an invalid account in the GL_INTERFACE table, General Ledger prints the invalid account in your Journal Import Execution Report. If you enter a code combination ID and if suspense posting is disabled, General Ledger prints the invalid code combination ID in your Journal Import Execution Report. If you enter a code combination ID and if suspense posting is enabled, General Ledger prints only the segment value separators in your Journal Import Execution Report. Therefore, we recommend that you disable suspense posting if entering code combination IDs.
