When a user posts an individual transaction in GP, that transaction will likely display in the Financial Series Post, saved to a batch with an odd, automated ID. These IDs are auto-created by Dynamics GP & are based on the source document / originating module from which the transaction was posted. Generally, the first 2-3 characters of the these Batch IDs are based on the module, with 3 or so more characters to identify the transaction type. this is or course followed by a numeric counter.
If one reviews the Source Document listing in GP, that will generally tell them what all the abbreviations represent. For those more technical, source documents can be found in SY00900 in the database.
Below, I have listed a number of the more common prefixes to an automated Batch ID and have noted the module which they represent.
