I am located in Belgium. Due to a HDD crash I started input of a book-year and closed it. I did a backup of this period. I started a new book-year period and see that all my bank-statements, invoices, journal-entries, custom reports etc. are still mentioned in the new book-year. I suppose this can be solved and cleared by using the ‘batch delete’-tab. Will the items be still accessible when I go back to the previous book-year ?
This makes no sense. How did you start a “new book-year?” The fact that all your previous entries and definitions are still there means you did not start a new business, and there is nothing else you could have done. Please be precise and complete in your answer.
Have business named ‘X’ with accounting period from 01/01/Y to 31/12/Y set in ‘Summary’. Made all my end transactions and balances on 31/12/Y. Set lock date to 31/12/Y. Made a back-up.
Started new period for ‘X’ from 01/01/Y+1 to 31/12/Y+1 set in ‘Summary’. See that the ‘Assets’ and ‘Liabilies’ accounts/balance from 31/12/Y are still there. That’s ok. See that the ‘Profit and Loss’ account is set to ‘0’. That’s ok. So far so good for me.
When I go to the ‘Journal Entries’ I still see all the ‘Journal Entries’ for the period 01/01/Y to 31/12/Y. What do I do to get this list not showing up anymore? Can not delete them because they are locked and ‘batch delete’ does nothing. The same for ‘Receipts’, ‘Payments’, ‘Sales Invoices’ and ‘Purchase Invoices’,
When I go to ‘Reports’ and ‘ General Ledger Summary’ I see the values are ok for the new period. It’s ok.
When I go to ‘Custom Reports’ all my reports for the period 01/01/Y to 31/12/Y are still showing up. When I do a ‘Batch Delete’ in the new period 01/01/Y+1 to 31/12/Y+1 I see that the ‘Custom Reports’ are also deleted in the period 01/01/Y to 31/12/Y.
Is there a way to clear these items or did I something wrong in closing the period 01/01/Y and starting the new period 01/01/Y+1 to 31/12/Y+1?
