Doing opening balances right box says in the 6th paragraph (last paragraph) that "You can download a QuickBooks company file that includes an opeing balance general journal entry from www. missingmanuals.com/cds." However, when you go to the site, it is difficult to find the specific link to use to download the file. It should be in the chapter 3 section for setting up the chart of accounts, but none of the links there indicate that a template will be provided that will have a general journal entry to show the company's opening balances for its accounts (from its trial balance). This is really critical, because nowhere in the book does it show an example of how to set up the journal entry to transfer over an existing business opening balances.

Note from the Author or Editor:
THere should be a link for the missing CD that links to the file OpeningBal JournalEntry.QBF. The missing CD pages for all the versions of my book seem to only have hyperlinks - not links to download the sample files I provide. I am sending the file to the person who submitted the erratum but we need to fix this for all the book versions!

figure 17-8

the screenshots for figures 17-8 and 17=9 are swapped. The screenshot in 17-8 should be the one in 17-9, and the one in 17-9 should be in 17-8.

figure

disregard the previous errata on this. It isn't that the figures are swapped. Figure 17-8 and 17-10 are identical. THe figure in 17-8 should show a cash flow report and doesn't.
