OVERVIEW:  Financials’ View Posted Journals provides two different ways to view results. With the Summary field not checked the program shows all detail based on selections made in one or more of the 10 provided filters.  Placing a check mark in the Show Summary Journal field works best where the only filter in use is the Journal Type.

APPROACH:  When looking for specific activity on one or more account numbers, then make sure that the Show Summary Journal field is not checked.  When looking for activity in a specific journal type, i.e. AP, CD, etc.) and you want to see every account selected, then do not choose the Show Summary Journal.  But, if you only want to see each journal listed one time, then select the Show Summary Journal option.
