Important reminder!

Product support for Engagement CS is ending on September 30, 2020. See Engagement CS license expiration 2020 - frequently asked questions for more information.

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS permanently expired on March 1, 2017.

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

You may use this procedure to record transactions when you have ending account balances only.

  1. From the CSA main window, choose Tasks > Transaction Entry.
  2. In the Transactions window, click the Journal Entries tab and enter the reference, date, description, accounts, and ending balance amounts for the transaction. Click the Enter button to save the transaction.
  3. Choose Edit > Options.
  4. In the Posting Options group box of the Transactions Options dialog, mark the Make reversing entry for beginning balance checkbox. This reverses the beginning balances automatically, so that each account shows the correct ending balance. You do not need to calculate the net change manually for each account.
  5. Click OK to save the changes you have made and return to the Transactions window. The selected options affect all transactions entered for this client and stay in effect until you return to the Transaction Options dialog and change them.
  6. Choose Post Transactions from the Edit menu or from the F3 or right-click context menu (or simply press the F5 key).
