Setting Up Shortcut Dimensions

You can choose up to eight dimensions whose values you can enter directly on journals or sales/purchase lines. These are called shortcut dimensions.

To Set Up Shortcut Dimensions:

  1. Open the General Ledger Setup window.

  2. On the Dimensions tab, in the Shortcut Dimension 3 Code field, click the AssistButton and select a dimension. Click OK to copy the code to the field.

  3. Repeat the procedure for Shortcut Dimension 4-8 Code fields.


The Shortcut Dimension 1 Code and Shortcut Dimension 2 Code are the same as the Global Dimension 1 Code and Global Dimension 2 Code and are, therefore, already filled out.


The dimensions you choose for shortcut dimensions should be the dimensions you most often enter manually.
