Financial Statements in erpWizard [How To]

Once again, our team is giving you an inside glimpse at our fully integrated accounting and ERP software solution. This time, we are displaying the details of the financial statements section found in erpWizard’s Accounting menu.Financial_Statements_in_erpWizard1

Before you can define the setup of your financial statements, you must first create the Columns, Groups and Sections that will be used to create the reports. We show you how below.

Column Schemes

The first step in setting up the Financial Statements is to set up the Column Schemes. This is where you define which type of information you want to see in each column of your report. Each report has a maximum of 6 columns.

To begin, select Column Schemes from the Accounting menu under Financial Statements, Master Tables. You can run the program by either double-clicking on it or by right-clicking and selecting Run Program.

  • Click the New button to create a new Column Scheme.
  • Click the Modify button to make changes to an existing Column Scheme.
  • Click the Delete button to delete a Column Scheme. Please note that the Delete button will only be enabled for Column Schemes that have NOT been used in a Financial Statement.
  • Click the Print button to print the list of the Columns Schemes and their setup.
  • Click the Exit button to exit from the Columns Scheme program.

Column Scheme Details

The next step would be to enter the necessary details for the column scheme. This is an easy process, where a description for the column schema is entered and titles for each column will be defined as well.

  • Select the Column 1 Type from the drop-down box. There are many options to choose from, such as Current PTD and Previous PTD. There is an Actual, Budget or Projection type available for each one.
  • Enter a description for the Column 1 in the Header 1 field.
  • Check off the box next to Percentage? if this column will be for percentage values.
  • Repeat the last 3 steps for columns 2 to 6.

Groups Master

The second step in setting up the Financial Statements is to set up the Groups. This is where you define the different Groups or GL Accounts for your report.

To begin, select Groups Master from the Accounting menu under Financial Statements, Master Tables. You can run the program by either double-clicking on it or by right-clicking and selecting Run Program.
