There is a new Posting Preview Type in Business Central. See how that works!

With BC v19 one of the Application changes affects the Posting Preview functionality.

Read more here.

The new Posting Preview feature can be enabled in the General Ledger Setup:

The way the posting preview worked until now is covered by Posting Preview Type = Standard.

So, if you don’t like the new Posting Preview (Extended) you can always use the previous one.

But let’s recall how the original Posting Preview looks like.

First, Search for General Ledger Setup and set the Posting Preview Type to Standard:

Open a sales order and choose Preview Posting; the image below shows only one group of ledgers, the Related Entries group:

Let’s now head to the General Ledger Setup and set the Posting Preview Type to Extended:

Then re-open the Sales Order and click on Post – > Preview Posting:

Notes:

  • we can see now 3 groups:
    • G/L Entries -> this is the place where will find the G/L Entries
    • VAT Entries -> records from VAT Entry table
    • Related Entries -> all the rest of the ledgers, including extension or custom entries
  • Show Hierarchical View is a toggle on how G/L entries and VAT entries in the posting preview weather grouped by Account No.(if Hierarchical View is on) or as a list (if Hierarchical View is off).

And if we want to view the details we can use the toggle in the upper right corner of the group to expand or collapse the groups:

Of course, the new Posting Preview on journals looks and feels similar to the documents’ Posting Preview.

Hope this helps!
