This refers to the 2014 version, but that's what I have and it's probably still in the 2016 version: Under the section on making an Accountant's copy, the text repeatedly states that only the account can make changes before the dividing date and only you can make changes after the dividing date. Who makes changes ON the dividing date? This is actually why I bought the book!! Either the accountant or the user needs to be able to make changes ON the dividing date and that will determine (for example) whether you make that date the last day of the month or the 1st day of the next month. Please fix! Also, while the text notes that you are locked out of making changes prior to the dividing date, it does not say if you are still locked out after you merge the accountants changes. That's another thing I wanted to know that isn't in Intuit's documentation, and it's not in yours either. Unless you fixed it in later versions :) Thanks

Note from the Author or Editor:
Where the text says the accountant can make changes before the dividing date, it should say on or before the dividing date.
