Trial Balance Software?

What Trial Balance software is an option that works good with ProSeries 2012?
    Good question but I don't know if anybody that cruises this neighborhood can give you a definitive answer.  Of course, Intuit being Intuit, Quickbooks is the obvious choice for importing data but as far as naming specific trial balance software that works good is a completely different story.  This is all the knowledge base has on the subject:

      Follow up to my comment above:    With a recent 2013 ProSeries program update, the ATB import now works just fine for me (as it always has in prior years).  I know ATB is an older program, but it works better than any of the other trial balance programs that I have ever tried to use.  Good luck with your importing!
        I use Caseware for trial balance work, that is, where the client maintains their own GL. Depending on how you import the data, you can import either the clients trial balance or all the gl data if you wish, by month, qtr or year.
        I've imported data from QB, ACCPAC and excel spreadsheets.
        You can export data to a file where it is imported into proseries.

        Caseware has document management capabilities so you can link word docs and spreaedsheets to accounts for documentation, financial statement add-ons, and other functionality. 

          Currently ProSeries 2013 will not import directly from my ATB for Windows as it always has in the past.  I sure hope that this feature will be fixed very soon, since I have a lot of clients linked up to save many days of work.

            People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

            1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
            2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
            3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
            4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
            5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
