Specifying a Balance Check
When you are in a Firm Library document for statements, you can supply a balance check for any new firm content that you have added. This is a calculation that provides validation that the statement is in balance, and displays a warning when it is not in balance.
To specify a balance check for a financial statement area, you must first open the Firm Library document for this area. See the section Accessing a financial statement area for details on how to do this.
- Open the Firm Library document for the area containing statements. See the section Accessing a financial statement area for details on how to do this.
In the configuration section at the top of the new content, in the Message when in balance field, type the message that is to be displayed in the client file when the statement is in balance.
In the Message when out of balance field, type the message that is to be displayed in the client file when the statement is out of balance.
Note: The Message when in balance and Message when out of balance fields must be provided when specifying a balance check.
- Double-click on the cells to create the calculations for the balance check for each year. These cells accept any CaseView calculation, including cell identifiers and map references.
The balance check is available for use in the selected financial statement area.
Note: By default, only two years are available for editing the balance check cell calculation in the library. To edit the third year, you must enable three-year reporting in the Entity Information tab in the financial statements.
