Diagnostics List command

Use this command to run a diagnostic analysis on the CaseView document while in the Design Mode.

CaseView's automatic diagnostics check every cell in the document for calculation errors, rounding errors, and linkage errors. Each time the automatic diagnostics are run, a report is generated that analyzes the number of times cells are linked to the trial balance. The report also cautions about accounting information that is missing from the CaseView document. Use the automatic diagnostics to find all document inconsistencies and correct them. The Auto Diagnostics dialog is a "floating dialog" that stays open while the document is corrected.

The list displays each type of diagnostic error in the document along with details of the error. Highlight the desired diagnostic error in the list and use the buttons on the right to interact with them.

Use the refresh button when correcting cells in the document using the Jump button. Once a cell is corrected, clicking Refresh re-runs the diagnostics, omitting all corrected cells from the list.

Select an error and then click Jump to locate the cell. Make any necessary changes to the cell.

Click to print a report outlining all diagnostics errors.

When the selected diagnostic has been corrected, click Clear to remove it from the list.
