- Do not delete the opening balances given.
- The ledgers are formatted using tables therefore it is best to navigate through the ledgers using the ‘tab’ function.
- When using tables, it is often easier to click on the “¶” function so you are able to see the formatting.
It is acceptable to shorten the account names in descriptions i.e. Cash at Bonk = CAB
