It’s probably a good idea to get in the habit of always updating your MAS90 or MAS200 Daily Transaction Register and not leaving unposted items until the end of the day.
The Daily Transaction Register (DTRY) is the posting journal that transmits source transactions (say from an updated invoice register) to the General Ledger in the form of a journal entry.
In version 4.20 and earlier whenever you went and updated an invoice register (and it appears that this may impact all registers) if you didn’t update the DTR then the next time someone went and updated a register they could answer “yes” to updating the DTR and both their register AND any unposted registers would be updated.
Apparently in version 4.30 of Sage ERP MAS 90 and MAS 200 the logic somehow changed. Speculation is that this was changed to accommodate the use of Paperless Office.
Here’s the Sage KB Article. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why some journals have updated all the way to the general ledger and others haven’t – the cure is likely to always update the DTR each time you update a detail journal (or always have someone run the DTR from the general ledger at the end of the day).
