Scenario:
A policy is created with an initial balance set to a particular number. However, whenever a Time Off balance report is run, Starting Balance (Hrs) shows 0.00 hours.

Resolution:
The Starting Balance (Hrs) column within this report always takes the value before the start date within the filter. If a policy is set to 20 hours with an effective date of August 1st, the report should have a start date of August 2nd such that it will show the Starting Balance (Hrs) before August 2nd and that is 20 hours. If we choose the start date as August 1st in the report, then, it will look out for Starting Balance (Hrs) before August 1st and that means 0.0 Hours.
