Highlighting, Sorting and Filtering

The aged receivables list has very powerful sort and filter options available.  You can find comprehensive information on this at Sorting, Filtering and Exporting.

You can also highlight one or more customers by checking the tick box at the left-hand side of each customer row.

Export to Excel

You can export the list to an Excel file by clicking on the Export To Excel button. See Sorting, Filtering and Exporting for more information.


Grand Totals

If a column contains a numeric value, then the grand total row for all of the customers will be displayed at the bottom of the column. Note, this is for all of the customers in the accounts system, not just the customers currently being displayed.  

Filtered Totals

When you enable filtering or highlight one or more customers, a second total row is enabled, called Filtered Totals. This is the total of the values for the selected or filtered customers.
