The Statement Text File application allows the entry and maintenance of special instructions and explanatory data that are to appear on the financial statements. It can be used to add, change, or delete lines from texts in the Text file or to add new texts as well as to print out the texts, as they will appear on the financial statements.
The Text file may contain up to 99 text statements. Each text statement may contain up to 20 lines with up to 75 characters per line.
Simply type out the text as you wish it to appear on the Financial Statements.
The RETURN key serves to position the cursor at the beginning of the next line. To terminate entry on the screen, press the F1 key, when the cursor is positioned at the beginning of any line.
Text statements may be used for footnotes, opinions, to replace headers, etc. Text statements may be coded to appear on Financial Statements, Supporting Schedules, and Source and Application of Funds statements by using a TEXT layout code.
Each text statement is manually assigned a unique two‑digit text code. This code is then entered through Statement Layout File after first entering TEXT as the special layout code (see notes for the Statement Layout File application).
