Export G/L Trial Balance

This document explains how to email and export an A/R Aged Trial balance, the G/L Trial balance and the A/P Aged Trial balance in a spreadsheet format.


For this example the G/L Trial balance will be e-mailed in a spreadsheet format.


  • General Ledger (Module 4)
    • G/L Trial Balance (Task 9)
      • Ranges: Make appropriate selections
      • Print Options:  No to detail, Yes to print zero balance accounts, Single spaced, Acct # order.
      • Totals: No to the totals options.
      • NOTE: This report won’t work if detail is needed because the account subtotals are in the same column as the date and other columns are merged.  An option for e-mailing detail is to e-mail the G/L Trial balance with detail in a PDF format. Another option for detail is to export Task #20 - YTD Master.
