recommended for the current section.
Inflow Description: The description you want to appear on the Cash Flow Report.
# of Pmts Per Year: Enter the number of times per year you typically pay or
receive the given cash flow. If you typically pay your electric bill once per month, you
would enter "12" as the # of Pmts Per Year. On the other hand, if you typically
pay your auto insurance once every six months, you would enter "2" as the # of
Pmts Per Year.
Amt of Each Pmt: Enter the average amount of the cash flow as it corresponds to
the # of Pmts Per Year. In other words, if you make two payments of $200 for auto
insurance each year, you would enter "2" in the # of Pmts Per Year field and
"200" in the Amt of Each Payment field.
Monthly Amount: This is a computed field that calculates the monthly amount
needed to be set aside for the given cash flow account. Upon clicking on the
"Compute..." button the underlying equation divides the # of Pmts Per Year entry
by 12, and then divides the Amt of Each Pmt by that result. For example, if you make two
payments of $600 each year, the Monthly Amount field will give a result of "100"
as the amount you'll need to set aside each month in order to have the $600 available when
the payment comes due
. Balance Forward: This is a computed field that will
show you how much of your cash inflow total is still available for allocation. If this
number is negative, it means you've allocated more outflows than the total of your
