Questions and Answers
 Standard Journal entry definitions are set up and when the SQR is processed no journals are created or only one journal is created-for the current month, even though I defined my SJE to cover the entire year and used a monthly schedule.  Where are my journals?
 Why can't I change my Model journal entry? ie. reset SJE type to none
 I set up SJE with 0 lead days and ran the process, but now I understand that I want a larger value in the lead days box, but it is gray.  How can I change the lead days?  
 I ran the process for a definition set up to generate monthly, for a date range of 1/1/2003 - 12/30/2003.  I got all journals except December.  Why didn't I get the December journal?
 I am trying to setup recurring journal entries. When processed the journal does not have the amounts but it does bring over the chart fields.
 If using Business Calendars that restricts business holiday transactions and the last day of the month falls on a business holiday(which includes weekends), the journal date of the standard journal entry will be moved forward to the next available business day.   If the next available business day is in the following month, it will still move forward.  How do we keep the journal in the correct month?
