    Please clarify a few things for me before I comment.

    When you open the cashbook, is there only one bank account option in the drop-down box at the top?

    If the answer above is YES, then what is incorrect about it? The description or the GL account code?

    If the answer is NO, then is the correct bank account on the drop-down list? If so, then you can select that option.

    There is only one bank account on the drop down and the account number is wrong. The account number showing is an old one, the company last used it 2yrs ago.

    Tinach - click on edit > select General Ledger > select Accounts > click on the search icon (magnifying glass) > find the bank account that you want to change (generally will be 8400/000) > double click on the account > Type in new account description > click on save icon. Voila!

    Has a general ledger code been created for the new bank account? If so, then all that needs to be done is to set it up as a cashbook account, so that it appears on your cashbook journal.

    Here are the steps to create a new cashbook.

    After creating the general ledger account for a new cashbook, you need to do the following:
    • Go to Setup...Entry Types
    • Scroll down to the next available empty row
    • In the "Description" column, type in CB* Payments (where * represents the cash book number)
    • In the "DC" column, type in D
    • In the "Account Access" column, click on the drop-down arrow and select "GL and Suppliers"
    • In the "Date/Period Entry" column, leave the default setting (Period Defaults Date)
    • In the "Cash Book" column, type in the cash book number, or click on the drop-down arrow and select the next available number
    • In the "Currency" column, leave the default setting as "Home Currency" (unless you are using foreign currency)
    • In the "Bank Account" column, type in the new general ledger account that you had previously created for this cash book
    • On the next row, in the "Description" column, type in CB* Receipts (where * represents the cash book number)
    • In the "DC" column, type in C
    • In the "Account Access" column, click on the drop-down arrow and select "GL and Customers"
    • In the "Date/Period Entry" column, leave the default setting (Period Defaults Date)
    • Repeat the above steps for the other cash books that you wish to setup

    Click on OK
