SAP Journal Entry Guide

A journal entry (also known as a journal voucher / JV) is an entry or transaction used in the SAP general ledger to book amounts for assets, liabilities, expenses, and revenues for a company or entity.
Journal entries are initiated and completed by those at Duke with the proper security access to create journal entries in SAP R/3 at Duke.Those users are known as “Document Initiators”.

Journal Entry documents should be initiated and completed on a timely basis to ensure that those reviewing have time to take action. If possible, do not wait until the fiscal month closing week to initiate documents.
