Check Register Update
During the Check Register Update process, the wage expense account number is first determined from Earnings Code Maintenance or Department Maintenance. When a valid Labor Code is present on the Payroll line and that Labor Code has an override segment entered, it will substitute the segment value into that wage expense account.
