Journal Entry Template - Remove Parameters


Is there a way to remove or hide the "Auto Reverse" checkbox in the Journal entry template? Can this be done through the appset/application parameters?

Also, is it possible to have "Reopen journal in the next period" unchecked by default?

Any suggestions / ideas would be appreciated.

    I don't think this is possible, at least on BPC 5.1

    Customizing the journal template in this manner isn't officially supported. The only supported customization is of the placement of dimensions on the header & detail, and the other items you see in the admin console's journal wizard.

    I've heard of some consultants who managed to work around these limitations, and make some unsupported customizations to the journal template XLT file behind the scenes. But there are some risks involved, and I wouldn't recommend it unless you're absolutely certain of what you're doing. Even then, with a version upgrade you may find that your customizations get destroyed.

    However, given the nature of the changes you want to make -- just changing the default values of the checkbox selections -- it seems pretty low risk, at first glance.

      Hi, this thread is a bit old, but my question seems pertinent to it... I was going to modify the 'Ev4Journal.xlt' template to make some "unsupported" modifications, but that file has Excel protection set with a password. Anyone know what the password is? I am on BPC 7.0.
