Securities Reports

 Security Card Report

This report creates a tab that summarises all the movements regarding a certain security. The structure is similar to that of the account card, but besides being filtered by security, it also shows the variation of the quantity of securities over time and how the securities' book value changes after each operation.

The header of the table shows the id, description and currency of the security along with the current date.


Enter the id of the title for which you want to create a tab. If the title is not found in the Items table, an error message is displayed, in this case make sure that the title exists in the table.

 Reconciliation Report

This report allows you to obtain the information to reconcile the accounting movements concerning securities. For each security account indicated, it summarises the movements of those items attributed to that security, thus allowing to compare all movements of a security with the totals calculated by the program.

Together with the totals there is a field "differences" in which any differences between the movements and the calculated totals are reported, this amount must correspond to zero, otherwise it means that something is not correct in the accounting.


Enter the name of the account(s) you wish to view the reconciliation for, if there are more than one use a semicolon as a separator between the accounts ';'.

  • Current Balance: Current balance of the security account returned by the program.
