Note: Direct edit Debtor/Creditor Opening balance is not the correct way to maintain Debtor/Creditor Opening Balance. This action will cause your ledger and Aging report not tally due to no entries was recorded in Aging.

The correct way to maintain Debtor/creditor opening, is go to AR / AP Menu to key in 'Past' entries or 'YTD' entries such as Invoice, CN, DN, Payment. The amounts of Past/YTD entries will then be updated to Opening / YTD Balance.
