Today I will explore with you a new function in MS Dynamics AX 2012 which is Ledger Account Alias. I consider this function could be used for:-

1- Non accountant “end users” who are not familiar in chart of accounts structure and required to key in a financial transaction, and Ledger account aliases allow accountants to enter predefined code for combinations of financial dimensions. Instead of manually selecting an individual dimension combination each time that he enters a transaction, so this function gives more usability to transaction entry.


Under General ledger->Setup->Chart of Accounts->Ledger account alias

Ledger Account Alias Setup















Create new record

Enter alias name, which will be used in transaction voucher

Select account structure, and company

Select ledger account alias definition, the translation of  the above alias, here identify account structure, the main account combined with dimensions.

Ledger Account Alias Setup 











Create new ledger journal, and enter lines.

In the account filed enter the predefined ledger account alias, and click on the combo box, it filters to the entered alias and shows the account structure as well.

After selecting alias description and populated in the account filed with account structure combination, cursor will be on a segment that have been specified in the Initial focus filed in setup form.
