Important reminder!

Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of Creative Solutions Accounting.

The Summary tab includes three main sections. The Statement Summary section on left contains information as it appears on the bank statement being reconciled. The sections on the right provide a summary of your reconciliation. When you advance to the next period, the program automatically updates this summary information.

The Statement Summary section is meant to mimic the bank statement that is being reconciled. It, like most bank statements, has a section for deposits and other credits, and a section for checks and debits, with the amounts in these fields corresponding to the amounts on the bank statement. The Other bank items field allows for the entry of items that are not recorded as debits or credits on the bank statement. If all bank items have been recorded in the debits and credits sections, the Other bank items field should be left blank.

You can choose to enter monthly totals for a quarterly bank reconciliation directly in the Quarterly Statement Summary dialog, and that information automatically transfers to the Summary tab of the Bank Reconciliation window.

When the amount displayed matches the cleared amount on the appropriate tab, an X appears next to the Deposits & Other Credits, Checks & Other Debits, and Other Bank Items fields

The Unreconciled amount field displays the difference between the Adjusted GL balance and the Bank balance reconciled. When the unreconciled amount is zero, an X will appear next to the field indicating that the bank account is in balance and the reconciliation is complete.

You can advance to the next period only when the account is in balance.
