Reconciliation Descriptions

This page describes the Reconciliation Descriptions setting in the Nominal Ledger.

---

When you use the 'Account Reconciliation' window to reconcile your bank statements with the postings to the Bank Account in your Nominal Ledger, you can enter a Reconciliation Code in the Recon. field in each row. Reconciliation Codes are arbitrary codes that you can use to identify postings that you have reconciled on a particular day or from a particular bank statement.

The Reconciliation Descriptions setting allows you to construct a list of standard Reconciliation Codes. Each Reconciliation Code should have a description. After entering the Reconciliation Codes and descriptions in this setting, you will be able to access them from the Recon. field in each row in the 'Account Reconciliation' window using 'Paste Special'. In other words, you can use the Reconciliation Descriptions setting to construct a look-up table for the Recon. field. You can then have the descriptions printed in the Account Reconciliation report (by printing it using the Show Recon. Comments option).

To open the Reconciliation Descriptions setting, first ensure you are in the Nominal Ledger. Then, if you are using Windows or macOS, click the [Settings] button in the Navigation Centre or use the Ctrl-S/⌘-S keyboard shortcuts and then double-click 'Reconciliation Descriptions' in the 'Settings' list. If you are using iOS or Android, select 'Settings' from the Tools menu (with 'wrench' icon) and tap 'Reconciliation Descriptions' in the 'Settings' list.

The 'Reconciliation Descriptions: Browse' window will open, listing any Reconciliation Descriptions that you have already entered. To enter a new record, select 'New' from the Create menu (Windows/macOS) or the + menu (iOS/Android). The 'Reconciliation Description: New' window appears: enter a Code and a Comment as appropriate and click [Save] (Windows/macOS) or tap √ (iOS/Android) to save the new record.
