The Bank Profile screen is a list of codes which represent each of the different banks used within Newton. A bank code is assigned to each Cash, Check, and Journal Transaction when applicable.

Before You Begin

Access to view the Bank Profile requires the current operator to have Security System: Profiles -> Bank -> View access.

Create a Bank

Example Bank Codes:
101 - Operating Account
102 - Premium Trust
200 - Cash On-Hand (Deposit Bag)
300 - CC MC 9999
301 - CC VS 9998

If you have an operating and a trust account at the same bank you will need to enter them as two different banks.

Bank codes are also used to represent other sums of money, including Cash On-Hand, and Credit Card Processing For Expense Entry.

  1. From the Main Menu, select Setup -> Bank.
  2. Select Create New.
  3. Enter the desired three digit number. Capital letters and numbers are both available. (Examples: 101, 200, FAB)

  5. Press <TAB> to step through the fields, and enter remaining profile information. The Address, Phone, and E-Mail are not required.
  6. Enter the Next Check Number value. When a Check is created with the selected bank, the system will use this value as the assigned check number and advance automatically unless the user enters a specific value.

  8. Select Exit.
