In this guide, you will learn which type of report you can generate with ERP5, and how to generate them.
In order to see the list of reports available to generate, click on the Reports tab of your ERP5 instance. On the left, you can see the Accounting area displaying a list of the reports you are able to generate: Import Report, Trial Balance, Account Statement, Journal, Third Parties, General Ledger, Balance Sheet, Profit and Loss, and Invoices Report. In order to create a report, simply click on the line of the report you want to create
. In our example, we will create Account Statement.
Here is an example of an Account Statement report Creation. As you can see in the screenshot, please follow the steps to set the following information.
Firstly, in the red area, the Section Category
is the group your company belongs to, you will have only one choice here;
At Date (end date)
are the dates delimiting your report.
The At Date is compulsory

you want to display in your report, and the
Journal Type (types of transactions)
you need to display.

Finally, when you are done editing, click the "Account Statement"
button. Then you can
