A new file can be created from a client data source. Company details, accounts, journal entries, and other accounting data are imported from the specified data source and included in the new file.
Note: A client file should never be added as a template and used to create new client files.
In Caseware Working Papers, select File | New.
- Enter a name for the file and then click Existing File | Create File or Create and import data.
If you select Create and import data and choose from one of three methods to bring in the trial balance and other client data:
Client data file – based on an existing QuickBooks™ accounting file
Existing file – based on an existing Caseware Working Papers file
Other Data Source – based on other accounting packages
After the copying is completed, an Engagement Profile Selector dialog prompts you to choose a profile:
For files based on the Audit template, select a default set of audit forms and template features for your engagement.
For files based on the Review and Compilation template, select whether the engagement is a Review, or a Compilation.
Select the profile that best suits the engagement. All components of the selected template are copied automatically into the new client file.
Once the profile is selected for audit client files, an Optimiser Checklist will automatically open, prompting the engagement team to answer a series of questions related to the engagement. Answering each question will mark the associated documents for deletion in the Optimiser Confirmation Report (AOCR). All work-programs and leadsheets will appear in Part III of the AOCR. Do not proceed with deleting these documents until materiality is completed.
This online help system applies to all Caseware Audit, Review and Compilation products. Not all features are available in all products.
