Set Recurring Frequency on a Recurring Journal in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralFor a recent training session on the general ledger in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, I covered recurring journals with the client. One of the requirements, for accruals, is that the journal be posted on the last day of the month.

If every month was of an equal length this would be quite easy to do using a date formula of 1M, but they aren;t so a more complex date formula is required.

To post the journal on the last day of a month, every month, the date formula required is 1D+1M-1D, which means add 1 day, add 1 month and subtract 1 day from the posting date. With this formula Business Central calculates the date correctly regardless of how many days are in the month.
