    Hello RobertOke 


    Could you please confirm that your Total Equity - Net Assets = Historical Balancing figure, as shown in the image below?


    If this is the case for you, please give the following steps a try:

    1. Backup your file
    2. Go to the Setup Menu > Balances > Account Opening Balances
    3. Select an account with a $0 opening balance (take note of this account)
    4. Enter a $1 opening balance for this account and click 'OK'
    5. Go back to Setup Menu > Balances > Account Opening Balances and remove the $1 balance to make it $0
    6. Click 'OK'
    7. Run your balance sheet again and it should now balance.

    Please let me know if the above steps resolve this for you. If not, please send me a private message by clicking on this link and let me know the serial number of your account, and I will be in touch with additional instructions.
