Changing Reconciliation Beginning Balance


This Solution describes the process for changing the Beginning Balance on a new Bank Reconciliation. This feature is useful for:

• Resolving a discrepancy between the cumulative Reconciliation Ending Balance and the actual Balance of the Bank Account.

• Creating Bank Reconciliations out of sequence

• Accommodating Reconciled transactions which have been Duplicated (3274)






Big Business 2.5 adds the ability to change the beginning balance used on a Bank Reconciliation. Previous versions of Big Business prompt you for a beginning balance only when creating the first reconciliation for a given account. Subsequent reconciliations forced you to use the ending balance of the previous reconciliation as a beginning balance.

Big Business 2.5 allows you to override this default by holding down the Command Key Set (Shift-Control-Alt on the PC, Shift-Option-Command on the Mac) while selecting the account to be reconciled.

You might want to enter the beginning balance rather than use the ending balance of the previous reconciliation if, for example, you are creating a bank reconciliation out of sequence.

To enter the beginning balance on a new Bank Reconciliation:
1. Open the Bank Reconciliation tool
2. Hold down the Command Key Set (Shift-Control-Alt on the PC, Shift-Option-Command on the Mac) while selecting the Account to be reconciled.
3. Enter the desired Beginning Balance and click the OK button.
