Working in a random file

It is ordinarily recommended to work in a monthly file. However, there are instances where it is desirable to work in a random period date sequence. For example, if you are setting up a Time & Billing file in the middle of the fiscal year, it may be advisable to work in a short year. In this example, you can set up a monthly file that lasts for only 5 months. This is especially advantageous when it is necessary to enter work in process and accounts receivable opening balances for the previous month.

When you roll forward the file into the new year, change the file from a random period date sequence to a monthly period date sequence.
