When completing a financial statement, the following are common uses for the double underline in Excel:

  • Income Statement - DU Net Income (bottom number)

  • Statement of RE - DU ending RE (bottom number)

  • Balance Sheet - DU for Total Assets AND Total Liabilities and Equity (one line item)

  • Statement of Cash Flows - DU Ending Cash Balance at the bottom of the statement

  • At the end of a journal page to show debits and credits have been verified and they balance.
