Work with Registers

Information Registers
Accumulation Registers
Accounting Registers
Calculation Registers

The main purpose of registers in the 1C:Enterprise system is to store information entered based on documents.

As a rule, users do not work directly with data stored in registers. This information is obtained and processed using various reports.

Information Registers

The main purpose of the information register is to store significant information for a specific combination of values that could be expanded over time. For example, if information on competitors' prices for goods sold must be stored, the collected price information extends over goods and competitors. And if trends in price variations must be followed, and we will enter prices periodically, the stored information also extends over time.

Data can be entered in an information register either automatically (for example, by entering information on an accounting object in a article catalog, by performing various data processors, e.g., retrieving currency exchange rates with 1C:Enterprise user Internet support tools), or manually.

To enter data, you should open the information register form and perform standard actions (add, edit, and delete data).

Accumulation Registers

An accumulation register is a configuration object designed to store register movements and total data.

Accumulation registers in 1C:Enterprise are used to accumulate information on availability and movement of assets—materials, cash, etc. All data on commercial transactions that is entered using documents or generated using calculations must be accumulated in registers. When it is accumulated, it will be possible to retrieve this information, analyze it and provide it to a user in report forms.

To view movements, you will need to open an accumulation register list form. The data in the list is read-only. To search for the required information, use filters and sorting.

Accounting Registers

Accounting registers are used in the 1C:Enterprise system to display data on commercial transactions in account books.

The basic concept of bookkeeping is the commercial transaction. A transaction is any commercial action capable of causing a change in the state of the enterprise's assets.

1C:Enterprise uses documents to enter data on commercial transactions. A document enables you to enter data on a commercial transaction into the system, and record the transaction date and time as well as the transaction amount and content.

Accounting data on a transaction are automatically generated based on the document (a Document type data object) and recorded in accounting registers. The procedure for such generation is defined in the Designer using the 1C:Enterprise script tools. When transaction data are entered, you can describe the completion of transaction attributes with various data from the document that generated the transaction.
In 1C:Enterprise, the operation record is always connected to the document that generated it: if you need to edit the document, the operation data will be changed according to the edited document; if you delete a document, the operation data connected to it will also be deleted.

In general, each commercial transaction consists of an arbitrary number of postings. In the 1C:Enterprise system, each bookkeeping posting corresponds to an accounting registers entry, and a set of accounting registers entries is analogous to a commercial transaction.

Postings are viewed in the accounting registers form. The data in the list is read-only. To search for the required information, use filters and sorting.

Calculation Registers

A calculation register is a configuration object that permits you to organize the accounting of the results of calculations that are performed at a certain frequency. They are closely related to one another by certain rules, and affect one another within a certain period. These features of a calculation register permit, for example, the recording of earnings by individuals (wages, sick pay, vacation pay, etc.).

Information is viewed in the register form. The data in the list is read-only. To search for the required information, use filters and sorting.
