Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

If you choose to change a CBS client's Chart of Accounts setup in CSA, you will need to verify that the correct GL account numbers are being used in each of several areas in CSA, Accountant's Assistant, and CBS:

After verifying all account numbers in the areas listed below, you will need to generate an updated Accountant's Transfer Disk for the client to import into CBS. In the Generate Client Information dialog within Accountant's Assistant, be sure to choose all options for each module for which the client is licensed.

Account numbers to verify in CBS

Note: If you change the Chart of Accounts for an existing CBS client, the client will be able to create new transactions using the new Chart of Accounts. However, the changes will not affect existing or historical transactions. Any open transactions in the client's application will continue to use the accounts specified when the transaction was saved. Furthermore, any historical data will be reported using the account numbers assigned when the transactions were originally saved.
