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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

The workpaper reference is a text field that allows you to enter up to 10 alphanumeric characters to supply an audit trail and represent where the journal entry originated.

  1. Choose Tasks > Adjusting Journal Entries to open the Adjusting Journal Entries window in Add mode.
  2. Enter a reference of up to 10 alphanumeric characters in the Reference field of the Journal Entry grid.

    Note: If you are working with both a GL and Trial Balance CS client, keep in mind that reference numbers of 100 or greater are reserved for checks, unless otherwise specified in the General Ledger tab of the File > Client Properties dialog.

  3. Enter the date of the transaction in the Date field (MMDDYY format).
  4. Enter a short description in the Description field.
  5. Select an account number from the F4 drop-down list in the Account field.
  6. Enter the appropriate amount in the Amount field. The application automatically enters a balancing amount on the subsequent line in the Journal Entry Detail grid.
  7. Select an Entry Type from the F4 drop-down list in the Entry Types field. (If you select a Potential entry type, you can select a misstatement type from the Misstatement Types F4 drop-down list.)
  8. You can enter an optional alphanumeric workpaper reference of up to ten characters in the Workpaper field.
  9. Click the Enter button to save the record and return to Browse mode.
