When the Accounting Data Entry window is displayed, you can select the Tools > GL Numbers... menu item to cause the GL Number Selector panel to be displayed.
When entering a GL number which does not find a valid match, the Invalid GL number panel will be displayed, offering Lookup or Reenter.
If Reenter is selected, the incorrectly entered GL Number's text is selected (ready for retyping). Clicking on the Lookup button displays the GL Number Selector panel with all eligible GL Number selections for the currently active transaction input window and the already entered GL Prefix, if any.
Double-clicking on a selection will load the GL Number into the account number field in the Accounting Data Entry window, as will making a selection and clicking on the Select button. If you have trouble locating the desired account in a long list of choices, type the known description into the Description lookup field and press the Find button.
You cannot add new GL Number from within the Accounting Data Entry function. However, you can launch the Accounts - Chart editor, without dismissing the Accounting Data Entry function, and make the desired update.
