Clients > Account Mask tab

The Chart of Accounts mask is the key to defining all accounts for the client. The mask must be set up before you can add accounts to the Chart of Accounts or enter transactions in the application. Accounting CS enables you to assign a color code to each segment for easy identification in the mask, but it is not required.

Choose Setup > Clients and click the Account Mask tab.

Note: If you access Accounting CS via Virtual Client Office, you can view the information on this tabbed page, but you cannot modify it.

Fields & buttons

In the Chart of Accounts Mask grid, define up to 20 segments for the mask. Mark the checkbox in the Core column for any segment that is part of the core mask. The application uses the core account to accumulate and report on consolidated totals.

Mark the checkbox in the Primary column for the segment to use for reporting and rounding balances and when closing the year by individual segment.

For detailed information on using the Chart of Accounts Mask grid, see Setting up a client's Chart of Accounts mask.

Mark this checkbox to have the application display leading zeros in account segment codes (in the Setup > Account Segments screen or the Select Code dialog) when the account number has more than one segment. This does not affect how the actual account numbers are created or displayed - only how the code is displayed.

Click the Delete button button to delete the current segment row. Click the arrow Up arrow button down arrow button buttons to change the order in which the segments are listed in the Chart of Accounts Mask grid.
