This support note applies to:

  • AO Classic General Ledger (AU)
  • AO Classic (NZ)
Article ID: 25248

In MYOB Accountants Office (AO) Classic General Ledger you can allocate transactions to sub-accounts by setting up sub-codes in your general ledger. Sub-codes can be used to break up an account code for more detail.

For example:

400 Motor Vehicle Expenses
400/01 Petrol & Oil
400/02 Registration & Insurance
400/03 Repairs & Maintenance
400/04 Running expenses

Before you begin, ensure the option Provide support for an additional Sub-Code has been selected within the Account Structure tab in the General Ledger > Options and the number of digits for Sub-Code has been specified (maximum of 2 digits).

To create a subcode
  1. From AO Classic, open your client's General Ledger.
  2. From your client's ledger, click on the General Ledgermenu and select Accounts Maintenance.
  3. Select the account you wish to add subcodes to. For example, 199 Interest Received.
  4. Press the F4 key on the keyboard to create a new account.
  5. Enter a code in the New Account Code field. For example, 199/03. Where:
    • 199 is the main account code
    • / symbol is the account code separator
    • 03 is the subcode.
  6. Select Copy account details from another account and enter the account code you would like to copy the settings from.
  7. Enter a description for the account in the New Account Description field, then click OK.

The new account appears in the Account File Maintenance list of Accounts.
