    Hi @buccarasta

    Can you let me know where and when this error is appearing during setup? Is it appearing on any item you attempt to setup?

    Can I grab a screenshot if possible.

    Hi Rav,

    I can't get it to do it again sorry!

    Can I ask another question.... Having moved here from Quickbooks Pro 2011-12, I am used to making journal entries as either debits or credits. In Reckon One this is not working. I keep getting an error message saying

    The journal does not balance. ($0.00DR vs $1.74CR = difference of $1.74CR)

    How do I set it up to just make the single entry pls? Is it possible?

    Thank you
