17 Print Trial Balance Reports

This chapter contains these topics:

Trial balance reports are useful when you need to verify the accuracy of individual ledger account balances and your overall ledger. If a balancing problem occurs, you can review these reports to locate the problem. For example, you can use a trial balance report to locate which period is out-of-balance. You can also use the report to analyze the debit and credit totals that make up your trial balance.

17.1 Which Report Should You Choose?

You can use the trial balance reports to review cumulative balance information. You can use the debit/credit trial balance to review totals for debits and credits. All the reports provide information through the current period or any previous period or fiscal year that has been retained in your Account Balances table (F0902).

Choosing a report depends on how you want to review the account balances and what information you want to see, as follows:

Report Description
Trial Balance by Business Unit Use to analyze account balances by business unit and obtain business unit totals. This report includes a processing option for level-of-detail summarization.
Trial Balance by Object Account Use to review specific "like" object accounts, such as all Cash In Bank accounts, and to obtain account totals for each group.
Debit/Credit Trial Balance by Business Unit Use to review balance sheet, income statement, and trial balance information with debit and credit totals. This report includes a processing option for level-of-detail summarization.
Debit/Credit Trial Balance by Category Code Use to obtain debit and credit totals and to supplement your chart of accounts reporting for multi-national companies and for statutory accounting.
