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Some processes documented in the Help & How-To Center are no longer applicable, due to the discontinuation of these CSA modules.

This tab appears if the Enter multiple descriptions for journal entries checkbox is currently marked on the Transactions Option dialog in Write-Up CS.

See also: Transactions Entry > Journal Entries tab (without debit/credit descriptions)

Use this tab to enter or edit non-check transactions and any special types of transactions, including descriptions for each debit or credit entry. Enter debits as regular amounts. The program treats negative amounts as credits, so you must press the minus ( - ) sign when you enter a credit. When entering an amount, enter the decimal manually unless you have selected the Implied decimal on amounts option in the Setup > User Preferences dialog.

Choose Transaction Entry from the Tasks menu and then click the Journal Entries tab. (Verify that the Enter multiple descriptions for journal entries checkbox is marked on the Transaction Options dialog.)

Tip: When entering negative amounts, enter the amount first followed by the minus ( - ) sign to have the cursor move immediately to the next field.


  • The fields in this tab are accessible only in Add or Edit mode, not in Browse mode. However, you must use Browse mode to change the journal in which you are entering transactions.
  • The rows of the Journal Entry grid can be re-ordered via drag and drop. In Add or Edit mode, click the number button at the left of a row and drag it to its desired new position.
