Request - General Ledger Transactions Report Modification


#1

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” :slight_smile:

This information is already available in the General Ledger Summary report.


#3

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.
