How to perform period-end maintenance on Sage 300 General Ledger


  1. Open General Ledger > G/L Periodic Processing > Period End Maintenance.
  2. Select the procedures you want to perform:
    • Delete Inactive Accounts. You can delete an account only if it:
      • Has an Inactive status.
      • Has zero balances for the current year, and for all previous years for which you
        retain transaction data.
      • Is not assigned as the default closing account on the G/L Options screen. (If necessary, you can assign a different account number to be the default account.)
    • Delete Transaction Detail History / Delete Fiscal Set History. General Ledger deletes
      historical financial, quantity, and budget details that are older than the number of years you specified for the Years of Fiscal Sets and Years of Transaction Detail options on the Posting tab of the G/L Options screen.
    • Reset Batch Number. Use this option to set the batch number back to 1.
  3. Click Process.
