    If your sure you want to re-start all you have to do is

    1 file, maintenance
    2 rebuild data
    3 untick top click ok
    4 check year start date

    this will clear any invoices but keep details of company and suppliers.


    If you wish to remove suppliers untick top two

    Any probs let me know if i can help

    Hi Harry, me again!

    If you just want to cancel the transaction or even a few tranactions who've posted, go to file. maintenance, corrections. Click find (make a note of the trans no. by looking in financials beforehand) type in trans no and it will highlight that trans. You can then either delete the transaction or edit it.

    Sorry to pinch your thread Harry, but had anyone actually ever done this? I'm always wary of a message that says use with caution ! :001_smile:

    I did it once in line 50 when I had made a mess of opening balances - worked okay.

    Yeah i use it on instant when starting a new year without opening balances but want to keep the same suppliers without having to redo

    i agree. i use this function quite a lot, it's very useful if you want to start from Inv no 1 but keep all the customers, suppliers, and product code... etc

    You must be careful though. I work in a company which does not allow anyone to use maintenance. We have to 'back out' entries manually. Having disagreed with this for a long time it is actually much easier and I would never now think to use maintenance again! If you need advice just shout!
