If you enter a reference number into the "New reference" field, the reference numbers will not be incremented. 

The reference entered, will apply to all repeating transactions which will be imported or generated into the batch (journal).

5.Enter or select the following:

a)Select “This year”.

b)Select the period (month, i.e. “March 2021”) in which to repeat or copy the transactions. 

c)Enter "2103" in the “Add this to descriptions” field. You may enter your own, if necessary. This will add it after the description entered in the Repeating Batch which was imported.

d)Enter "DE2103" in the “New Reference” field. This will replace the Reference entered in the Repeating Batch which was imported.

The Reference "DE2103", as in this example, indicates that it is Depreciation for March 2021.

6.Click on the OK button. All the transactions you have entered in the repeating Batch entry for the General journal will be imported (copied) into the normal batch. 

7.Enter the Alias (batch name) in the "Change alias" field. In this example is ''Depreciate2103'' entered to indicate that the Depreciation transactions for "March 2021" was processed in this General journal batch.

The Alias (batch name) allows you to identify a batch by a unique name. You will be able to select the batch by alias or batch name if you need to reverse the posted batch or import a posted batch.  

8.The imported repeating batch, as in this example, should reflect as follows:

batch-repeating-transactions-imported

9.The first line should be imported will be blank, consisting only of the reference number and date. Click on the ^D: Delete icon to delete this row.

Always check that the amounts are the same before posting this batch. For instance if you have sold your Mercedes-Benz, you may need to delete the entry for the next months. If you have purchased new assets you may change the amount or add a new entry.  

You may do it on this screen, but it is recommended that you edit your repeating transactions in the Edit → Repeating transactions menu on the Action ribbon to avoid having to change the same issues every time you wish to update a repeating batch.  

10.If the batch is not balanced or in balance, you need to click on the F5:Balance icon to balance the batch. 

11.Click on the F8:List icon to print a list of the transactions in the batch.

It is recommended that the source documents (e.g. working papers, calculations, etc.) be attached to this List of the transactions and that it be retained for record and audit purposes.

You may also click on the reportman-preview-icon-save icon (Save the report as a metafile report), and save it as a PDF - compressed file for archiving purposes. 

12.Once you are satisfied that all the entries are correct, click on the F6:Post icon to post (update) the batch to the ledger. TurboCASH will update and post the transactions to the ledger accounts.
