For example, if you select in the field and in the field, only exchange rate loss postings are accepted by the system for the current account.

Note Note

The use of posting types also makes it much easier to set up posting profiles in the other modules, because the lookup form filters the ledger accounts according to posting types. For this example, open the lookup form from the field on the tab of the form. The tab now displays only those accounts that have the exchange rate loss posting type, therefore minimizing the risk of selecting a wrong account during setup of the system.
