Enter an Interfund Journal Entry Lesson

In this lesson you will learn how to enter an interfund journal entry.


If you enter an interfund (intercompany) journal entry where the Fund associated with the primary entry's business unit is different from the offset's business unit, the system creates a corresponding offset document for the cross-fund transaction with a document type of AE (automatic entry).
