Add Chart of accounts field to disclose normal balance debit or credit

So we could print out a chart of accounts report that would list whether an account typically has a debit or credit balance.  I am new to blackbaud and we just finished our audit.  When I printed my trial balance reports there were numerous balances in parenthesis which normally means subtract the figure.  But that was not the case with some of these account balances.  For newbies like  me it would be very helpful.

    You can get a list of this information one of two ways.  You can simply go into general ledger > configuration > account codes.  While there you right-click with your mouse and export to excel.  It will include a column indicating if the account is a contra account.  The other way would be to create a query that gives you a list of all of your accounts and includes the contra field.
