|The General Ledger is
the heart of any accounting system it is where all bookkeeping and accounting
transactions are received, summarized and processed. It provides the financial reports
which are of greatest value to the decision maker. The Sage MAS 90® For Windows® General
Ledger provides this crucial information and is powerful, flexible and
management-informative, yet easy to use and operate.The General Ledger module is so
flexible that you can maintain the same account title and numbering scheme you have been
accustomed to since you started your business. Posting to any future period can be
performed from general journals or from other modules without closing the current period.
The General Ledger also provides for extensive history and budget information. You can
retain activity by period, transaction history for up to ninety-nine years and three
separate budget categories current budget, revised budget and a user-defined
budget. Virtually unlimited financial reporting capabilities are available from the

reports, we have created a powerful, easy-to-use custom financial reporting capability.The

Chart of Accounts, budgets, and transaction data directly from, or to an external file.
This feature even allows you to transfer General Ledger postings from one company location
