Journal Entry Overview

Purpose: Allows you to add or modify Cash Flow journal entries which are used in the various Statements of Cash Flows available from the report menu in the Published Statements section. Rather than the traditional entry of debits and credits, this journal is more of a fill in the blanks process using positive and negative numbers to allow the system to generate the cash flow statements. These entries are only used to generate the cash flow statements.

Select a Fund - SCC: In order to make Cash Flow Journal entries select a specific fund from the fund list along the left side of the screen:
