Access this screen by selecting Tool #534: Misc. Posting Codes Configuration (config) and Tool 957: View Misc. Posting Codes Configuration (inquiry).

This is the first of several screens used to configure codes that are used when using various applications that post to member accounts. Codes not only make posting these transactions faster and more convenient, they also provide a way for front-line staff to post to the general ledger without having to know or understand your Chart of Accounts. Using codes ensures that transactions are posted to the proper G/L account every time, for consistent reporting and tracking and better control of your credit union's accounting files.

You can use these codes to charge a fee when a specific Miscellaneous Receipt Code is used. See the detail screen.
