Trial Balance


How do I run a Trial Balance to check my data integrity?

Detailed Description

Step 1

Click on the Reports > Accounting Detail > Trial Balance menu option.

Step 2

Choose the reporting date, then click the Print button.

Step 3

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.


Step 4

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.
