How Do I Run End of Month?

This lesson will teach you how to run the End Of Month.

This process should be done after all statements and reports, if any, have been run for the month you are closing. It is recommended that you do a backup before the Month End.

If the month end process is not done in a timely fashion and a year goes by without an End Of Month process, then it makes it difficult to use the electronic journal to view past transactions. It also causes reports to slow down considerably.
