How To: Query Basic Information from JD Edwards General Ledger with Example

JD Edwards General Ledger Tables

Financial reporting is a constant and growing concern for most companies. While ERP systems like JD Edwards EnterpriseOne (E1) or JD Edwards World can improve the quality of your business, new users may need some help. With any JD Edwards implementation or system conversion, understanding some table basics can help save time when writing SQL scripts.  For this example we will retrieve basic information from the JDE General Ledger through a simple SQL query.  The following tables are primarily used together for JD Edwards General Ledger reporting.  Refer to the list at the end of the post for frequently used fields and descriptions within these tables.

  • F0901 – Account Master:  Contains Account Descriptions, Level of Detail, and Category Codes.
  • F0902 – General Ledger Balances:  Contains Account Balances with various details
  • F0911 – General Ledger Details:  Contains journal entries that are rolled up and posted to the F0902 during the GL Posting process.
  • F0006 – Business Unit Master:  Contains Business Unit Descriptions and Category Code Information.


Let’s say that you would like to see JDE GL balances for a range of accounts.  You may also want to see the account descriptions and business unit descriptions.  So we will begin looking at how to relate the two tables so we can retrieve the data we need.  In order to write this query, you will need to join the F0902, F0006, and F0901 tables.

To join the F0902 to the F0901, we will relate F0902.GBAID to F0901.GMAID
To join the F0902 to the F0006, we will relate F0902.GBMCU to F0006.MCMCU

Sample SQL:


Now, let’s do the same thing for the GL Details Table.

To join the F0911 to the F0901, we will relate F0911.GLAID  = F0901.GMAID
To join the F0911 to the F0006, we will relate F0911.GLMCU = F0006.MCMCU

Sample SQL:


***Note*** The above SQL is based on SQL Server.  You may need to change the owner.  If you are using Oracle or DB2, you will need to change the syntax in order for the SQL to work.

Each of these queries will return all of the fields from their three joined JDE tables.  This sample SQL can help combine account details for easy reference.  Check back for future SQL examples used with JD Edwards.  Checkout for more information on specific SQL functions or syntax.

The next post in the series will focus on filtering the data we have gathered.
