    If you are referring to use of Dummy G/L a/c at the time of initial data uploads during go-live, then you will be using it for the following:

    1. Loading Opening Balances of different Balance Sheet Accounts

    2. Loading Opening Balances of different P&L Accounts.

    Example entry will be

    Customer A/c Dr

    To Dummy 1 A/c

    Dummy 2 A/c Dr

    To Vendor A/c

    Stationery A/c Dr

    To Dummy 3 A/c

    At the end of the day, if you add up all the different dummy accounts, it should net to 0.00. The reason why you need to use this is because, you are not loading the detail level transactions and you are only uploading the beginning balances. It also becomes easy to reconcile at the end of data loads.

    You can have any number of dummy accounts, but it is advised to have dummy accounts for A/R, A/P, Inventory, Fixed Assets and All Other Accounts.

    Assign Points accordingly.

    Thanks,

    Madhav Nanduri
