Accounting CS automatically creates proxy transactions (as additions or payments) in the Actions > Enter Transactions screen when you create transactions for which one or more distributions are allocated to a GL account that is assigned to a bank account. The purpose of proxy transactions is to enable the application to correctly calculate the running balance for the bank account(s) associated with the distributions. The application does not post proxy transactions to the general ledger.


  • Accounting CS displays proxy transactions only when the Enter Transactions screen is in Bank account mode. You can switch between Bank account mode and Journal mode using either of the following methods.
    • Choose Edit > Options dialog and select Bank Account or Journal in the Data entry method field.
    • Click the Bank acct mode icon icon on the toolbar in the Enter Transactions screen to switch to Bank account mode and the Journal mode icon icon to switch to Journal mode.
  • To display the running balance in the Balance column (when the Bank Account method is selected in the Enter Transactions Options dialog), you must sort the transactions by date (by clicking the Date column heading) and remove any Searching or Filtering that may eliminate bank transactions.

Tabbed pages in this screen

This tab displays information about the source transaction, including the transaction type, reference, date, and journal (for journal entry source transactions) or bank account (for bank account source transactions).

This tab also includes a Go To Source button. Click the button to open the transaction record for the source transaction.

Note: If you do not have permission to view the transaction type of the source transaction, the Go To Source button will not be available.

This tab displays any notes that were entered in the Notes tab for the source transaction.

This tab displays the date and time that an action was taken on the source transaction and the ID and name of the staff person who took the action. Recorded events include adding, finalizing (entering as handwritten, changing to handwritten, or printing), and voiding the transaction.

Fields & buttons

The Transaction Detail section of the proxy transaction record displays the bank account, journal, posting period, reference, date, description, and amount from the source transaction. The Type field for proxy transactions is always Addition or Payment. You cannot modify any of the information in the Transaction Detail section for the proxy transaction, and you cannot delete the proxy transaction directly from the proxy transaction record. To change any of this information or to delete the proxy transaction, click the Go To Source button in the Source tab and modify the information in the Transaction Detail section and/or the Distributions tab of the source transaction.
