General ledger parameters -> Ledger Accounting rules

Hi All,

I was trying to familiarize with some of the nuances of the General Ledger Parameters module in Dynamics 365 for Operations using https://mbspartner.microsoft.com/D365/CourseModules/1643

However it was difficult to understand the effect of setting the accounting rules option in the General Parameters – Ledger Accounting rules -> Financial Dimensions -> Values used for summary account.

The below link by Ludwig Reinhard was of great help to understand how this setting affects the posting on the liability summary account.

I now know another blog site that I definitely need to go through https://dynamicsax-fico.com/author/ludwigreinhard/

Hope this helps

The significance of being in the zone, time zone that is.

This is a post with respect to how combined date/time fields is handled in AX/Dynamics 365 for Operations (Dyn365FO). For more information on the type of date and time fields in AX visit the following link from docs.microsoft.com.

Date/time data and time zones

Dyn365FO stores combined date/time fields internally in the SQL database based on UTC time zone. Whenever the date is to be displayed to the user, an offset based on the user preferred time zone is applied and then shown to the user.

This preferred time zone is set in the following section in Dyn365FO.

System Administration-> Users -> Users

User Options

Options-> Preferences

Time Zone
