Bad Values in Reports

My report says Bad Value in some of the fields. Why?

Goldenseal accounting software will fill in Bad Value if it can't find the source of information for something. In reports, that most often happens in the Balance Sheet or Income Statement, when there are no calculators to fill in values for the financial report.

If didn't start with one of the Starter files, the solution is to import the calculators that fill in report values.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Open your company file.
  2. Choose Import from the File menu, and choose Company File from the submenu.
  3. Navigate to your Goldenseal folder-- on a Macintosh it is probably on your main hard drive. In Windows it is probably on your C drive, inside the Program Files folder.
  4. Open the Other Data Files folder that is inside the Goldenseal folder.
  5. Select the Current Calculators file.
  6. Goldenseal will import the calculators you need to make reports work correctly.
