CCH Axcess with G/L Direct

First Time Set Up for CCH Axcess with G/L Direct

In CCH Axcess you need set up a Mapping Profile.

** This only needs to be done once for the lifetime of the CCH Axcess desktop install.

Please have one G/L Direct file downloaded from Tallyfor ready. In this example we will use the file "2019 Taxhub Test 1120S". Any Tallyfor file for CCH Axcess with G/L Direct will be fine.

1) Activate G/L Direct. Go to G/L Direct/Activate G/L Direct.

2) You don't need to change any default settings. Click OK. This will activate all of these tabs:

5) Under "Delimiters" pick "Comma" and Under "Options" choose quotes (") as the Text qualifier. Click OK. 

6) In the next screen, identify the columns with the proper Field Name. Follow the screenshot below.

A: Account Number. B: Account Description. C: Current Year/ Balance-Debit/Credit (Single column). D: Account Type. E: Tax Code. The most important ones are Account Description and Tax Code, but map them all so that the template is always ready. Click "OK" and then, Click "Close". 

7) That's it! The import configuration is now saved and you can use it for individual imports. To import individual Trial Balances, see below.

FAQs, Tips and Troubleshooting

Q: We have an open item on the Officer Compensation for 1120s and 1120S - we don't want to use the OVERRIDE. Other options?

A: CCH Axcess only allows import into the OVERRIDE field. This is the case for the other tax products as well. If you don't want to use that field, then we recommend utilizing the DO NOT MAP (Expense) mapping option.
