Last updated on AUGUST 16, 2022

Applies to:

JD Edwards World General Ledger - Version A7.3 cume 4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


If you experience incorrect amounts on your financial statements, you might discover that the business units are not associated correctly in any or all of the following files: the Business Unit Master file (F0006), the Account Master file (F0901), the Account Ledger file (F0911), or the Account Balance File (F0902).  This is common when merging companies and not all files are updated as they should be.    This document describes the steps to use to change the company number on business units, and the programs that you need to run to update records in the Account Master (F0901), Account Ledger (F0911), and Account Balances (F0902) files with the new company number. 

Additionally, this document provides an itemized list of programs and processes to consider, especially if you are merging companies.

If you use Fixed Assets, you must additionally update information in the Asset Balances file (F1202). Review <document 626837.1> for details.
