A new feature  for MAS 90 has been added in the latest Product Update (  Now you  can now post a transaction into the Check Deposit and Adjustment Entry and have an option to post directly to General Ledger.

Here is how it works.

Bank Reconciliation -> Check, Deposit and Adjustment Entry ->

Enter a new check at the bottom of the list. After entering the check number, entry number, check date, reference, payee name and amount, select the check box “Select for G/L Posting. When the check box has been selected the field “Distribution Account No.” opens up and you can enter the general ledger account number. The Comment field also opens up. If you enter anything into the Comment field it will post into the general ledger.

Back at the menu there is a Bank Reconciliation Transaction Register menu item. The bank code is selected.

The register is printed and updated, just like all other posting processes in MAS90.

A Daily Transaction Register is printed and updated.

After the transaction has been updated the Check, Deposit and Adjustment Entry displays the account number but the field is grayed out.

One word of caution. While you cannot change the account number it is possible to delete the line. Deleting the line does not undo the journal that was posted to you general ledger.

Additional note. There are two new buttons on the bottom left of the screen. You can launch the Bank Reconciliation Transaction Register and the Bank Recap Report from the entry screen. Just another little convenience!
