Pro forma journals entries are review-level entries that are held in a payroll workfile (F06395) until you run final update. You create the pro forma journal entry workfile to prepare the journal entries for review and posting. When you create the workfile, the system generates the Pay Period Journal Batch Proof report (R06229). You use this report to review the accuracy of your payroll cycle information before the system posts the information to the general ledger.

To have journal entries posted automatically during final update, you must first correct any errors that you find when you review the Pay Period Journal Batch Proof report.

The final update step creates actual journal entries, updates the Account Ledger table (F0911), and optionally posts the entries to the Account Balances table (F0902) if your payroll system is integrated with the J.D. Edwards General Accounting system.
