Image 001 - Accounting distributions
In general, dimension values for a given accounting distribution are populated from higher levels in the tree. Since different accounting distributions may require different dimension attributes based on the main account’s account structure and advanced rules, the system may have to traversethe defaulting order to ensure that all dimension values have defaulted.
The general order to determine dimension attributes for a given accounting distribution is:
Parent > Grandparent(s) > Default dimensions on the document line > Main account
AX also provides features (Main account allocation rules and Financial dimension default templates) to automatically split accounting distributions.How defaulting of dimension values works when these features are used will be described in a separate blog entry – Splitting and defaulting using Financial dimension default templates andMain account allocation rules.
