By Clinton Jones on Dec 28, 2016

manual journal entryThe latest version of Winshuttle Journal Entry has grown in popularity over the past year to become a slick complement to Winshuttle Studio for running Finance manual journal entry based processes.

Journal Entry (JE) can also be used to post accruals and various Accounts Payable (AP) and Accounts Receivable (AR) documents in SAP, all from the easy to use Microsoft Excel interface. If you are already using Winshuttle Studio or Studio Runner, you have the ability to use Winshuttle Journal Entry. All you need to do is install the product. Journal Entry 9.4 comes with a couple of powerful new capabilities you might want to take advantage of to enhance an already rich user experience for posting journals in SAP.

Automate more manual journal entry transactions

Although common manual journal entry (MJE) transactions like FB01, F-02 and FB50 have been available since the first version of JE, v9.4 now includes FBV1 for document parking, F-65 for document parking and F-43 and F-22 for posting Vendor and Customer invoices. There is also added support for Windows 10 and Microsoft Office 2016 as well as SAP GUI 740 in this version.

A single installer will install the correct version, 32-bit or 64-bit, based on the version of Microsoft Office you have and there is now support for column based BAPI templates. Journal Entry 9.4 is compatible with the latest version of the Winshuttle Function Module and includes a bundle of 40 templates based on 21 transaction codes and the SAP BAPI BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_POST. Journal Entry also works with Winshuttle Foundation v10.7.

Unlike Winshuttle Transaction, there’s no recording involved in getting started with Journal Entry. Most customers can get up and running within minutes of installing it! You can learn more about Winshuttle Journal Entry and see the product in action by visiting the Journal Entry product page or by downloading the product brochure to learn more about the product’s features. Customers can apply their own recordings to the library of templates with recordings made using Studio (v10.x format) and Transaction.
