When you are ready to process these repeating (recurring) transactions, this option will import (copy( these transactions into the normal batch. You may then edit these transactions, and post them to the ledger.

For example, you may use a specific batch type (e.g. general journal) for many different transactions and may post many general journal transactions in a month or even in a year. The alias enables you to easily identify and select specific batches (journals). 

j)Totals for each period - Once you have entered transactions for more than one accounting period in any batch (journal), you may view the totals for each accounting period of the transactions in the batch (journal). This will display the total amount for the debit transactions, as well as the total amount for the credit transactions in each respective accounting period. 

k)Write delimited file - This option allows you to export transactions in a an unposted batch to a file in a comma separated value file format. Once a file is saved on your system, you may select the file from the location saved on your system, and import the transactions into a new batch with the Delimited file import batch processing option.

l)Reverse batch (D<-->C) - If the transactions are entered with the amounts in the incorrect column (for example, in the Credit column instead of the Debit column), this option will transfer the transaction amounts as entered into the credit columns to the debit columns and vice versa for a selected unposted batch.
