This is something you will use a lot.
Continuously we get people, e.g. bookkeepers, bankers, etc. asking us for financial figures that are years old. So what people need from their POS Software is to find out what a client or the total clients owed on a nominated date. Say they wanted to know how much your customers owed you on 3/1/2018.
This is often a problem for people with other Point of Sale Systems. They have to keep special backups. Now they have to find the appropriate ones. Then load these backups to get the figures. Once they manage to supply this information as sure as day follows night, they get asked for other figures from other dates. This can be a problem if they have not kept the backups.
Here is a better way for you to do it.
Go to the main menu> Register reports>Customers>Trial Balance.
Now select the date that was, in this case, we want 3/1/2018, so I put this date here.
Now comes out all the details.
If they pick another date for you, no worries put in those dates.
You have saved yourself a lot of work and time.
