How to view account history on Sage 300 General Ledger


  1. Open General Ledger > G/L Accounts > Account History Inquiry.
  2. In the Account field, enter or select the account number you want to inquire on.
  3. In the Year field, select the fiscal year for which you want to view account activity.
  4. If your General Ledger and the selected account are multicurrency, select a currency and the currency type (Source or Functional) in which to display account balances.
    • Note:
      • If your functional currency is the euro and a reporting currency is defined in Common Services (on the Company Profile screen), you can select Reporting, Source, or Functional as the currency type.
      • If your functional currency is the euro and you have a single currency system, you can choose Functional or Reporting as the currency type.
  5. If the Show Quantity option is available, select it to view information for quantities posted to the account.
    • Note: You can select the Show Quantity option for a rollup account even if it does not use
      the Maintain Quantities option. General Ledger checks whether any of the member accounts
      maintain quantities. If they do, their quantities are rolled up along with their account balances, if you also select the Use Rolled Up Amounts option.
  6. If you selected a rollup account and you want to see rolled-up amounts for the account, select the Use Rolled Up Amounts option.
  7. Double-click a period to open the G/L Transaction History screen, where you can view detailed history for the account and period.
