When building the sources and uses, always include a “model check” as shown in the template to show that sources equal uses. If you prefer to conceal these cells for aesthetic purposes, you can color them white, group and hide the row (Alt>d>g>g + Alt>d>g>h), or set the row height to zero (Alt>o>r>e). It is best-practice to output all model checks to a single worksheet so that any user can quickly tell if the model contains errors.
