The row definition is essential to the function of the financial statement. The properties that you apply to a row regulate what will appear in that row, its location, organization, and to some extent, its appearance.

  1. Select a row by clicking the row description/number button /_images/acct_pr/csa/row-button.gif on the left side of the editing worksheet. This automatically selects Row mode.
  2. Specify the row type by choosing it from the drop-down list in the Type field. Depending on the type you select, different fields will be available in the rest of the Row Properties box.

Tip: After defining the row properties for a statement, you would normally define the cell properties for an entire column and then make adjustments to individual cells as necessary.
