For each general ledger account, the General Ledger Transactions Report currently has a total debit and a total credit. However, it would be far more useful if it ALSO had the “net balance” for each account shown in the appropriate column (viz. if DR - CR > 0.00 then the “net balance” for that account would be shown in the DR column; if CR- DR > 0.00 then the “net balance” for that account would be shown in the CR column). A General Ledger report should EASILY reconcile with the Summary Reports (e.g. General Ledger Summary; Trial Balance etc) but at the moment a “manual” subtraction needs to occur for each account. Although I am not a developer @lubos I can’t imagine that it would take a lot of time to insert an extra “net balance” for each account in the General Ledger Transactions Report … and I feel certain that a lot of users would benefit (at least all the CPAs “out there”
This information is already available in the General Ledger Summary report.
Yes, it is available there, but every GL detail report I have ever seen (and I have seen a lot) has had a NET BALANCE shown for each account in the detail report. A summary report is just that … a summary of the TOTALS found in a detail report.
By the way @lubos I am certainly NOT denigrating Manager; it blows most other packages out of the water in terms of price, functionality and ease of use. It is just that if a few basic “loose ends” were attended to (e.g. some reporting issues; and a better audit trail) then it would be almost perfect as a extraordinarily comprehensive (and auditable) package.
