Statements in the report builder that go onto multiple pages will have the titles, headers, and disclaimer repeat on each page.

Locked vs Unlocked Statements


The locked statement simply means you are unable to add rows/data or re-arrange the rows. This is because the bookkeeping may change with added, deleted, or merged accounts. If the statement remains locked then all of those changes will update within Reach.


If you unlock the statement, you can add rows/data and re-arrange rows/accounts. All the accounts existing will still sync and update.

When you do have account changes:

A solution to any changes to your bookkeeping would be to delete any deleted accounts by selecting the gear icon next to the account name. New accounts should be added by selecting "Add Data / Rows" at the bottom. Then use the mapping (arrange) tool to map the account where it should go.

When you first attempt to unlock a statement, a popup will appear with this warning:

Changing the row structure of a statement will cause it to not be updated if accounts are added or deleted in your bookkeeping. This cannot be undone.

This is just to let you know to make sure not to unlock the statement if you always want it to auto-update with any account changes.
