The Summary and Detail options apply to those accounts which import into a statement dialog in UltraTax CS. Select one of these two options as follows.

  • Select the Summary option have UltraTax CS total all items assigned to the same tax code and display that total in one line on the statement. The name of the first account imported with the assigned tax code is used by UltraTax CS as the description of the imported amount on the statement.
  • Click the Detail option to have UltraTax CS import each account (that is assigned to a single tax code) as a separate item on the statement dialog, so each amount is displayed in a separate line. The statement dialog includes a total of each account included in that statement.
