Datasets - Balances - Trial Balance

The Trial Balance section is designed to generate a trial balance report which can be filtered by the transaction display types. In addition, you can export journals tagged as "Export Pending" from this area.

The following fields are required to generate the report:

Exporting Journals tagged "Pending Export"

If you are processing all journals through Reportance and not directly in the client accounting file you will need to export any pending journals to the client accounting system. 

Exporting a balancing journal will 'tag' all transactions as exported, and store the net balancing journal in the system. It is advisable to do a fresh import from the source system after the balancing journal has been processed because the 'tagged' journals will be excluded from the calculation of trial balance in the future reports.

To do this simply run a Trial Balance report with the display field of "Pending Export". After the report has been generated the following field will be displayed. 

The two options for exporting journals are:
Automatically Export Journal (Default)- This will do three things:

  1. Change transaction from "Pending Export" to "Exported" 
  2. Create a balancing journal and post it to the system tagged as "Balancing" 
  3. Use the API connection to post the journal to the accounting system. 


Mark as Exported - this will do two things:

  1. Change transaction from "Pending Export" to "Exported" 
  2. Create a balancing journal and post it to the system tagged as "Balancing" 

 A user will manually need to export these journals. 

Unposting Exported Balancing Journals

If you need to unpost a previously committed balancing journal simply navigate to the journal screen, select the relevant journal and select Undo Balancing Journal
This will remove the balancing journal and change the tag of the associated journals back to "Pending Export"


To search through the generated report start typing in the search field as demonstrated below. This is a live search field to pressing enter is not required. 

For more information on Filtering and formatting generated reports see the Filtering and Formatting Report knowledge article.

Right-Click Menu

To access the Right-Click menu, use your mouse to right-click anywhere on the generated report to bring up the following menu options.  


Exporting via the right-click menu does not update the status of the journal - this needs to be done in the Datasets>Balances>Trial Balances section.
