Extended Trial Balance Report
The Extended Trial Balance report displays a trial balance as at the beginning of the opening date next to a trial balance as at the end of the closing date. The final column shows movements for each account during the period covered.
This report is mainly useful as an audit/reconciliation tool for accountants and bookkeepers.
You can specify a date range for the transaction. Dates can either be entered manually or selected from the pop-up calendar. Dates must be entered in the format DD/MM/YYYY, for example, 01/01/2018.
When entering dates manually, a date guessing routine speeds up the input by taking the user input and assuming the missing month and or year based on the current date as the user leaves the field i.e. the date today is 30th October 2018
- User enters 15 or 15/ and tabs - field displays 15/10/2018
- User enters 15/9 or 15/9/ and tabs - field displays 15/9/2018
