Departments: Departments are used to associate General Ledger Accounts with a particular subdivision within the company. If the Account Type is set to either Revenue, Cost of Goods Sold, Operating Expense, or Other Income/Expense, the Department Code field will be available.
For example, a single design firm may have commercial and residential departments. Assigning a Department to an Account allows the Income Statement to be printed for a single Department or for the company as a whole.
You may Add, Edit and Delete Departments by choosing the Edit Dept. List... button on the Account Glossary - Account window.
To choose or add a Department Code to an Account, on the Account Glossary - Account window, click the Search button while the cursor is placed inside the Department field. You cannot Delete a department using the Search.
