Enter Your Vendors' Opening Balances
Entering Balances as Balance Forward Amounts
Entering Balances as Accounts Payable Transactions
When you first start using Denali, most of your vendors will probably have existing balances. You can enter opening balances in two ways: you can enter the balance in the Balance Forward box on the Statistics tab of the AP Vendors window, or you can enter a transaction. You can enter these amounts either way, but the aging of the amounts differs depending on which method you use.
