Update Starting Entries

When making journal entries or entering vouchers & checks in the previous fiscal year, the Pontem GL program many times needs to manually run the end of year procedures to update reports.  The following steps will walk you through how to run the Update Starting Entries tool.

  1. Open the GL program with your usual login
  2. Click "File" on the menu bar
  3. Place the mouse on top of "Maintenance", then click on "Backup Your Pontem General Ledger Data"
  4. Click the "OK" button to accept the default location to save the backup
  5. On the completion notification, click the "OK" button to acknowledge
  6. Click "File" on the menu bar
  7. Place the mouse on top of "Maintenance" then click on "Update Starting Entries"
  8. Read the warning message and click the "Yes" button if you wish to continue with the process.  If you wish to exit the tool, click the "No" button.
  9. When the process is complete, you will be returned to the main work space of the GL program.  You are now ready to run the reports with the new information.
