BEFORE YOU START entering your debt into your past, make sure that your balance sheet is entered correctly in the form.

The amount appearing on the Total Assets line must be equal to the amount on the Total Liabilities and Equity line. If these amounts are different, you'll see the difference on the Validation line. The cell containing the difference will be in red. To ensure that your historical data is entered properly, your balance sheet must absolutely balance, otherwise the budget will contain errors.
