Viewing/Refreshing Existing Reports

The Financial Statement Report Log can be used to view and refresh reports that have already been run.  Here you can find a listing of every report that has been run. If you've made minor changes to a Financial Statement Spec., or maybe you posted additional journal entries during a fiscal period and want to see the adjusted balances, this log can be used to refresh the data rather than run a new report with the same dates. Using this method will save time prevent an excessively long Financial Statement Report Log with duplicate reports. Please note that dates for financial reports in the Financial Statement Report Log cannot be changed.
