Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

For details, see CSA license expiration 2017 – frequently asked questions.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

Choose this command from the Edit menu to have the application delete and then rebuild the list of uncleared transactions from the general ledger. Depending on the number of transactions in the period, the rebuilding process could take several minutes.

In general, as you record checks and deposits in the Transactions window, they are automatically available for processing during bank reconciliation. If checks or deposits do not appear automatically in the Bank Reconciliation window, choosing to rebuild causes the application to look through all the existing transactions and rebuild the list of items available for clearing.

This feature is useful, for example, after completing client conversion from another General Ledger application or after adding GL for a client you have already been processing in another CSA module such as Payroll CS. You will also need to use this feature if you added the checkbook after entering any transactions in the Tasks > Transaction Entry window.

Rebuilding the list of transactions when a bank reconciliation is already in progress will unclear any items that have already been cleared.

Running the Rebuild command removes transactions currently in the Bank Reconciliation window that are dated prior to the number of years of transactions being saved with the client database. For example, assume that you save 2 years of transactions (specified in the GL tab of the File > Client Properties dialog), that 2009 is the current year, and that checks dated prior to 12/31/07 exist. When you run the Rebuild command, all transactions dated 12/31/07 or earlier are removed. This may cause the Bank Reconciliation to show an unreconciled amount when it previously did not. You would need to re-enter those now missing checks as initial open items. Prior to running the Rebuild command, you should print the current Bank Reconciliation Worksheet and include cleared and open items to make sure you have a complete listing of your checks.
