Hi Fellow Manager Fans,
As always, I should apologise to you all in advance for my long winded post !
I’ve been using Manager for several years now and have always found it great (except for a few errors and problems that I’ve managed to create for myself).
I’m running Manager using the Cash “System” and generally, I do my invoices etc and normally on a weekly basis I print out a bank statement then go through and enter payments and receipts etc.
This system has worked well for me and for the most part, my Manager totals agree with my bank statements.
There have been a few occasions where my old age or senility become involved and incorrect dates may be entered or similar mishaps occur but generally, after making my hair somewhat greyer, I manage to sort the issues out.
In the last week or so I had a problem where the bank and Manager didn’t agree so I went digging and finally managed to track the problem down and it turned out that I had cloned an old transaction but neglected to change the date.
I did try using the reconciliation feature and didn’t seem to be getting anywhere so I pulled out my bank statements and by checking monthly balances, I tracked the problem down.
I’ve now found that opening the reconciliation tab shows several different dates and discrepancy amounts even though, to me, everything seems to balance OK.
I would appreciate it greatly, if anyone could suggest what I could have done (or am still doing wrong) to cause issues such as these.
I will also add that I’ve had virtually no previous experience in accounting and am completely self taught but thankfully, I have been getting by fairly well for six or so years.
Stay Safe Everyone !!
