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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

Use the Transactions window to add or update general ledger transactions (including cash transactions and journal entries) for the selected client.

Choose Transaction Entry from the Tasks menu.


  • If you wish to use multiple journals for the client, first select Use separate journals in transactions data entry from the General Ledger tab of the File > Client Properties dialog and then define each journal in the Setup > Journals dialog. Otherwise, all transactions are automatically entered in the General Journal.
  • The program saves changes you make to column widths for an individual client in both the list pane and the data-entry grids of the Tasks > Transaction Entry window. To undo any changes to column widths, click the Restore Default button on the Columns tab of the Transaction Data Entry Options dialog.
