I want to search for a transaction based on its amount. Can I do this in VTT+?
There is no search feature in VTT+. Can be a pain in the you know what sometimes but do not despair. Simply copy into excel and run a search in there. Only takes 30 seconds. Bit long winded but works as well as any other search feature. Hope that helps.
Hi Stefan - Copy what into Excel? The whole ledger?
If you know if it's a payment or receipt, you can use the transaction list/daybook or the transaction report shows everything between dates. Display what you want on the screen and then edit, copy and paste. Good luck.
Yes, that is a good point. I suppose one just has to put a little more thought into what one is looking for.
Thank you, both of you.
One of my staff commented it would be nice to have a search function in the bank rec as sometimes it hard to find the transaction on screen if there are many. There is such a function in sage. May be a recomendation for after ixbrl is done if anyone at VT is watching?
Yes i would like to import transaction dates as well.
I posted the following into the 'any answers' forum but wanted to add a further question.
Is it possible to search by 'payee' or report by 'payee' - I often get a call asking did you receive my cheque X months ago.
I have been an avid spreadsheet user for the last ten or so years, developing my Excel skills as and when needed.
Due to a number of factors I have decided now is the time to move over to a more tailored package which enforces the correct way of entering data.
The question I have, is should you be entering a separate payee for each person paid or just put a generic 'Payment' in the payee field?
The reason I ask, is part of the speed entering with VT Cashbooks is achieved through memory of previous payee's - if this is then cluttered with hundreds of different selections it defeats the purpose.
I had thought about using the note field but this doesn't appear visible in the 'entering transactions' menu, only in account summary.
