    Petty Cash Reconciliation in Imbalance to Detailed Petty Cash Book Details Account

    We have One Bank Account but we utilise 2 Cash Book viz. Cash Book and the Petty Cash Book on Pastel Partner V12. All our Receipts and Payments is made from the Main Cash Book. We process the Petty Cash Cheque on the Main Cash Book and all Petty Cash Payments is processed through the Petty Cash Book.
    The Petty Cash Reconciliation balances with the Petty Cash Control Account But it does not balance with the Detailed Petty Cash Detail Account.
    Upon investigation, I found that the Petty Cash Cheque from the Main Cash Book is not updating to the Petty Cash Detailed Account.
    I would appreciate it very much if anybody on the Forum can I assist Me in resolving this.
    I suspect that this has something to do with my Regional Language Format Setting.

    Thanking You in Advance for Your Assistance !

    Kind Regards
    Curare

    When you process a transaction from one cashbook to another cashbook, you need to allocate the payment from the "sending" cashbook to a designated suspense account called "Transfer Account" or similar, and then process a receipt in the "receiving" cashbook, and allocate it to the same suspense account.

    In other words, do not allocate any cashbook payment or receipt to another cashbook ledger account directly.
