Recalculate Totals

Use the Recalculate Totals settings to update financial balances for Debtors, Clients and Daysheets. You may select the type of records that you want to recalculate, or simply update your interest and fees. When recalculating Daysheets, you may select a date range in the FROM and TO fields.

Recalculating may take some time depending on the size of your database.

If you use automatic Debtor interest calculations, normally you would want to recalculate at the beginning of the day . Otherwise, you need only recalculate when you've added new accounts or posted payments.

tip.gif Please be aware that account Mode determines whether or not accounts are recalculated. This is set in the Mode field of the Debtor form.
