The General Ledger Report requires a valid year to be entered in the For Year field which defaults to the current year.  Select the desired Fiscal Months from the Starting and Ending Fiscal Month menus.  Both a Summary and a Detail version of the report are available.  The Summary version shows accounting activity for all Accounts in Design Manager including:  the Opening Balance for each Fiscal Month, the total of each accounting type for the month (i.e. Sales, Purchases, etc.), and the Ending Balance for the month.  The Detail version shows each transaction for the selected fiscal period.  Therefore, the Detail version may be quite lengthy depending on the size of the fiscal period and the amount of transactions recorded in Design Manager.  Choosing the Suppress Net Zero Months option will not print a Fiscal Month for any Account where the net activity for the Account is zero in that Fiscal Month.  As such, the Suppress Net Zero Months option reduces the length of the report considerably.
