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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

  1. Choose File > Select Period to Process.

    If the active client is using more than just the General Ledger module, you will be prompted to choose whether to change just GL period, just the payroll period, or both. Mark the appropriate option and click OK.

  2. In the Select General Ledger Period to Process dialog, highlight the period that you want to process. To select a period in a prior year, highlight the period at the top of the list, which should be the last period in the previous year.
  3. Click the Move to Selected Period button.
  4. If you need to move to a period more than one year back, repeat the steps above as many times as necessary to get to the appropriate period. You may only go back for as many years as you have saved transactions in the General Ledger tab of the File > Client Properties dialog. Make any necessary entries just as you would in the current period.
  5. When you are ready to move back to the current period, choose File > Select Period to Process and highlight the period in the list that you want to return to. If you are in a previous year, highlight the last period for the year and follow the procedure for closing to the next year.
  6. Click the Move to Selected Period button.
