Using TurboCASH


This option is used to update or post your documents created or generated on the Input - Documents menu option to the Ledger. The debtor (customer) documents, which can be updated or posted to the Ledger, are Invoices and Credit Notes. The creditor (supplier) documents are Purchase and Goods Returned Notes. Quotes for debtors and Orders for creditors can not be updated or posted to the Ledger.

Only once these Documents have been updated or posted to the Ledger, the transactions will be included in the Reports. When these documents are updated to the Ledger they will automatically write up your journals and post the transactions to the applicable accounts in the Ledger (the General Ledger as well as the Debtors Ledger, Creditors Ledger and Stock Ledger).

If you have purchased stock items from a creditor or supplier, you need to update the Purchase documents before you update or post your Invoices for sales of stock items to your debtors or customers. This will ensure that your Stock Item file will be updated with the purchases before you actually sell the stock items and that you will have sufficient stock items on hand when you update or post the Invoices.


You may set the auto-post documents on print option in the Setup - System Parameters - Documents menu option to update or post documents automatically once a document is generated and printed. If you use this feature and do not print a document once it is generated, you need to update or post the unprinted documents in this Input - Update ledger menu option.
