May i know how does the initial balances in general ledger work? Does it carry forward the amount from last month into this month? How does it link with trial balance?
I would like to get the bring forward amount in the general ledger for every month as the opening.
I've tried select the period and tick for the initial balances option but no luck, all the initial balance amount in my account ledger always show zero (RM0) when print the general ledger in pdf format .
Would appreciate anyone of your kind help point me to the right direction.
I am giving an example so that you can understand my situation easily.
"If I choose period for from 1st February 2016 to 29 February 2016, it didn't start with balance from 31st January 2016. it start with transaction of 1st February. For instance, my cash balance in 31st January 2016 is 1500. 1st February 2016 have a transaction which debit 500. When I tick period of 1st February 2016 to 29th February 2016, it will only show balance 500 instead of 2000."
So if I want the ending balance of February, I should choose period starting from January to February?
