This post is part of the New Functionality In Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 Wave 2 series in which I am taking a look at the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central 2023 Wave 2.
The twenty-seventh of the new functionality in the Application section is Generate a customer statement only with open entries.
Businesses send customer statements to customers in various formats and to serve various purposes. Microsoft have added a new option to the Customer Statement report that can clarify what customers owe you..

If you open the Customer Statement report from the Customers list or the role explorer, you’ll find a Style field on the request page. The field offers two options:
- Balance: Get an overview of outstanding amounts.
- Open Items: If you choose this option, the report will:
- Only show open entries within the selected date range.
- Show a balance for open entries before the start date.
- Ignore any entries with a posting date that’s after the end date.
While statements are usually produced showing all activity in a specified period, I can see producing one only of open entries would be very useful from a credit control point of view, allowing you to send a statement to a customer of all invoices yet to be paid.
