Here is a tutorial on how to configure Dynamics AX 2012 to import a general journal from a CSV file. The steps below are using Contoso demo data.

Thanks for the post.
I have found two issues with the standard opening balance import entity:
1. When using it for importing customer balances and you also need to import settlement discounts, the discounts do not post through to the customer transactions, although it is specified in the journal. We had to run a separate job after the import to initialise the discount creation.
2. When import fixed assets depreciation transactions using this entity, the asset transaction type also do not get updated.
Hi Eddie -
I'm not seeing anything previously reported on the customer discounts issue. I would recommend either submitting a support ticket to have an Engineer investigate it or submit a product suggestion on our Connect site:
It looks like we've released a hotfix for AX 2012 R2 for the issues with importing the fixed assets depreciation journal and the transaction type. The hotfix is KB 2911714 which can be downloaded from PartnerSource. You'll need to log in first, but here is the link:
I hope this helps!
