    Hello Suzanne,

    Thanks for asking.

    I've looked at a couple of reports and noticed that the Open Balance field is coded to show either Net or Gross on that report regardless of your Reporting and Tax preferences.  Unless the column in the report is coded to respond to preferences then you will not be able to change its display.  Your only

    Sorry Suzanne, here it is again....

    I've looked at a couple of reports and noticed that the Open Balance field is coded to show either Net or Gross on that report regardless of your Reporting and Tax preferences.  Unless the column in the report is coded to respond to preferences then you will not be able to change its display.  Your only workaround is to find a report that displays the Open Balance as Gross and customise it to show what you are after (most reports display Open Balance as Net).

    regards,
    John

    Thankyou so much for your response John.  I have spent countless hours on the phone to technical support who haven't been able to explain this.  Do you have much experience dealing with accounts in the building industry? I'm asking for future professional advice.

    Hi Suzanne,

    Glad to help.

    I hope we are pretty good in helping users get over their technical problems with the programme, but the interesting bits of accounting and industry-specific issues are not really in our domain.  We have a Partner Programme of bookkeepers and accountants who do bring the two together.  I've put a notice on their board that you have an interest in the building industry so at some time in the future you may get a post here from a partner willing to extend their services to you.  You can always look for a Partner on their search page.


    regards,
    John.
