    • Description shows the description assigned to this account within the chart of accounts.
    • Add New Account will open the screen shown below (please refer to the next screenshot; below) and allows you to add a new entry to your chart of accounts.
    • Modify lets you edit the highlighted record.
    • Print will print the chart of accounts table in its entirety (including any notes assigned to each item).
    • Import chart is used to import the Chart of Accounts into StorMan in a Tab-separated or SYLK format. The format required in this file is: Account Number (Max 10 Chars), Account Name (Max 35) and Account Type (Max 2); headers are NOT to be included.

    • Account type is used to tell StorMan what type of account this item is. References to allowable characters are provided underneath the field. Keep in mind that some account types need to be unique - in these instances you'll only be allowed to enter one in your chart of accounts.
    • Opening balance is used to enter the opening balance for this item in your chart of accounts, if any. This field is only used for Bank & Checking (e.g. B1, B2, etc) type accounts.

    • Actual YTD is the sum of all the balances for the account over the financial period (this field is calculated when running the GL Report).
    • Budget YTD is what was budgeted for that account (this field is calculated when running the GL Report).
