Financial Audit heads up and Thank you!

"Getting the file onto the auditors computer, seems to me, will require a CDRW. File send may choke the email system."

Text files usually "winzip" fairly well (90% compression). Might save you from having to burn a CD.

Subject: [Vantage] Financial Audit heads up and Thank you!


Happy Friday,

I am one of those Onelist Lurkers who has learned more than I have
contributed.
Thank you for the education.

Now for the heads up.
Our Fiscal Year end is October 31.
In response to certain nationally reported accounting and reporting
disasters over the past months there are changes in the general audit
approach of our auditors during the upcoming annual audit. We do not use
any of the "Big 8" which then became the "Big 5" and as reported nationally
the "Big 4".

The new client prepared report required at the beginning of fieldwork for us
is:
"Electronic File of all Fiscal year 2002 transactions".
To me this means the export to txt or xls of the General Ledger report for
all accounts for the entire year.
Since we have learned to copy the temporary file while it is in print
preview, creating the file can be done relatively simply. Thank you!
Getting the file onto the auditors computer, seems to me, will require a
CDRW. File send may choke the email system. We have not spent time setting
up the auditors for access to our Networks,....yet.

So,
Thank you to the Group!
You may want to plan ahead for this one.
