In the Chart of Accounts list, all G/L accounts are available and can be viewed at one time. However, there is also a G/L Account Card for each account, and this can be accessed from the Chart of Accounts list.

Each line in the chart of accounts is represented by a G/L account card where you define how the related G/L entries for that account are managed.
