How to implement account mappings and sub group consolidation in Dynamics, Xero, QuickBooks, MYOB, etc.

A typical need for finance professionals is mapping accounts or other system entities (companies, products, contacts, etc.) in a different way than they are structured in their source system. Acterys provides a very simple way to do this either in Excel using the Acterys Excel Add-on or in the Acterys Modeller. Excel is typically the easiest option as you have all Excel features like copy/paste, drag and drop, validate, etc. at your disposal.

Adding groups/mapping/sub consolidations to Dynamics, Xero, QuickBooks, MYOB and other systems

To map your data details just create a new column for the dimension (e.g. accounts, organization) that you want to use in the Acterys Modeller:

Acterys Modeller: Add mapping/consolidation sub groups

Enter a name for the new column in the following dialog box:

Now you can edit details for the new column e.g. mapping organizations to sub consolidations/ accounts to account groups etc. directly in the browser or switch to Excel and use Edit Dimension.

Validation with Linked Columns

The process can also be made easier by using “Linked Columns” that enable you to -in addition to typing the grouping details- select them from a list of allowed entries:
