Payroll Checks in January

Q:  I am trying to print my Payroll Checks for the first time in a new year. Every time I try to print the Payroll Summary, the system tells me that some General Ledger file is not found. What am I missing?

A:  From your question, it appears you are using CertiflexDimension Ultra Payroll and General Ledger operating interactively. It also sounds like you have already created a new year for your payroll files. This allows you to record pay data in the new year, but you must also create a new year for General Ledger before you can print the Payroll Summary and Payroll Checks. This procedure can be accessed by setting your processing date to the last day of the old year and then clicking >File>Start New Period File.
