Is your trial balance out of balance in your Sage 100 ERP system?

Are you having trouble figuring which entry is the culprit that is making it unbalanced?Sage 100 ERP Trial Balance

Well, you are in luck!

Here is a quick and easy way to determine what the cause of the unbalance is – even if it goes back years:

  1. 1. Go to General Ledger Reports
  2. 2. Choose Source Journal History Reports
  3. 3. Run the Source Journal History Report
  4. 4. Review the listing for any journals that have an asterisks (*) next to them.  This indicates that they are out of balance.
  5. 5. Through General Ledger Detail, go to Source Report for the indicated journal that is out of balance.  Here you can determine which entry caused the out-of-balance and what you need to do to fix it.
  6. 6. Assuming you have appropriate access, you can post a one-sided journal entry to fix the problem, thus balancing the trial balance.
