Entering analytical accounting journals is usually encountered with a lot of efforts as you have to go through several screens and options. When entering opening balances specifically, the journal with its associated details is quite difficult. From here, the idea to create an Excel-based macro generator tool was derived.
Throughout the previous month, the tool was published for testing and the feedback was quite positive.I highly appreciate the efforts taken by the community members who dedicated some time to help make this tool better.
Few modifications were applied and the tool is now open for the community to download and use.
