It would be great if reports could be customized within the program instead of having to use Crystal Reports. It works in Quickbooks!
We are currently reviewing development for this capability. Our first concern is to ensure your bookkeeping stands up to any audit or review. Because our software may use a different database protocol than other systems, it requires Crystal Reports in order to retrieve information. Crystal provides a way of reporting data without compromising the integrity of the database.
Rest assured, we will keep striving to make our software more usable while keeping the data secure, and the system as configurable as possible.

Jean, we modified the balance sheet and Income statement by removing the header/footers for the Advance groupings using Crystal Reports. The suggestion I have is to have Denali add a "report" switch to these reports to remove or include the "Advance group" headers/footers

The reports are our biggest problem...and is the reason we have considered new software. Each month I have to "re-do" the financial statements because of the way they look. If you have multiple accounts in different groupings and also others alone - well, it is a mess. The answer is correct, but the way it looks is awful. It takes me an extra 2 hours a month!
This would be great going back and forth on a single point server and publishing and republishing is really confusing when only doing it monthly. Another list of some sort to keep custom reports would be great.
