APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Excel 97 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q169400

SYMPTOMS

In a Trial Balance report, when you drill down for detail about an asset or liability account, the beginning balance figures do not match the beginning balances for the accounting data.

CAUSE

This behavior occurs only for the beginning balance figures. Note that the Trial Balance uses the Net Change column to reflect the true balance for that period.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.

MORE INFORMATION

In the Microsoft Small Business Financial Manager 97 for Microsoft Excel 97 you can generate various reports by using the Report Wizard. In a report, when you double-click a cell that contains a balance for a particular account, a new worksheet is generated. Detailed accounting data for that account is listed including beginning balances and net change amounts. The beginning balances may not match accounting data. However, the net change amount for that period is correct.
