How do I run a Trial Balance to check my data integrity?
Click on the Reports > Accounting Detail > Trial Balance menu option.
Choose the reporting date, then click the Print button.
In accounting terms, for every entry there is a corresponding entry. When the sum of the debits equals the sum of the credits, you can be confident that your data has integrity.
The main reason for an error in the trial balance would be some form of data inconsistency. If you have a situation where the trial balance does not balance, go to the Utilities > Transaction Check menu option and ensure that there are no errors reported.
Now go back and re-run the trial balance - if it is still out of balance, call our support team for further assistance.
