Trial balance report (LedgerTrialBalance) [AX 2012]

Updated: January 29, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 Feature Pack, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012

The Trial balance report displays full details of the ledger accounts. The report information includes opening balances, debits, credits, and the resulting balances for a given date range.

The general purpose of the trial balance is to expose any errors for account balances. All accounts that have debit balances must equal all accounts that have credit balances.

NoteNote

We recommend that you use Management Reporter for Microsoft Dynamics ERP to create, maintain, deploy, and view financial reports. Management Reporter lets you design financial reports based on ledger accounts and financial dimensions, drill down to transaction-level detail, and use web-based report viewing. For more information about how to print financial reports by using Management Reporter, see Management Reporter for Microsoft Dynamics ERP.

When you generate this report, the following default parameters are displayed. You can use these parameters to filter the data that will be displayed on the report. For more information, see Filter the data on a report.
