Hi Erin,

That warning will still around, but a yellow warning will not prevent you from saving or processing (a red error would stop you in your tracks).   Control accounts help ensure that your subledgers (the various modules) don’t get out of balance from your General Ledger.  This is why you have the option to prevent Manual Posting (i.e. a manual journal entry) to these accounts.

To mark an account as a control account, you set this up on the Chart of Accounts.  Check out this article for more information:

As per the article above: “It is possible, although not recommended, to not configure any GL accounts as control accounts. In this case, when a non-control account is selected in a box where the system expects that a control account for the applicable subledger be selected, a warning is displayed.”
