Agreed. You could allow users to set a session date (in a manner
similar those we have discussed in prior posts) for the entry of
transactions, yet still have system-wide immutable cutoffs and date
restrictions (i.e. once the books have been closed for a period,
transactions cannot be entered for dates prior to the close date).

I like the session date idea, as long as there is some log that a

it could support, but my experience says there's always someone
find a use.. So, on logon or on change from 'today' a quick log
request would be good.
Just in case you are saying what I think you are saying...
I am NOT saying that the computer system date should be changed
arbitrarily so LSMB can have screens populated with that date. That
would be a very bad idea, especially because other apps on the
would be thrown out. Please tell me that you are NOT suggesting this.
I'm not, although the idea is entertaining in a horrific sort of
way :-). However, I remain by my observation that I'd like to have
an idea of who is entering transactions later - there are
procedural cut-off dates for such things so it would be nice to see
how far away from the red line one operates.
