Hi timn64 and Chris75.
Could not find any solution to the three stated queries.
Version 5.24 seems to have a bug. "When a new Invoice is processed and the "Record" button is selected and entered, a window appears to request " Please select the account for Payment". Was not able to resolve issue and can remember also seeing this being posted by another member.
I battled along with system until financial Year end as at 28th Feb 2018. Once all year end adjustments were made, the my old outdated computer and 5.24 on new computer was dumped and terminated. Backup of 4.98 and restore to 5.24 version did not work.
1) Then started from scratch by downloading fresh 5.24 wef the beginning of March 2018 which worked with the security code as it was downloaded within the 6 month time limit. Also set up new accounts to my liking as old system had too many dormant accounts.
2) Saved all Debtors and Creditors of old system in CSV format and uploaded into new computer.
3) To get all balances of Debtors recorded on new system, Sales tax free Invoices were done for all customers. Some journal adjustments were required to General sales and Unbalanced Suspense account.
4) To get Creditors updated on new system, their opening balances were also recorded on new system. NB NB . 1 - 4 not recommended for inexperienced bookkeeper!!
After all this effort, the problem still exists and I still manually select Bank Account ........ Looking forward to updated version.
Another irritating feature of 5.24 is that when a Creditor payment is made, a screen box pops up which requests the following: "Would you like to view all unprinted cheques now?" "View cheque List." I always have to select "Cancel". In this modern day and age 99% of payments are electronic trough bank account or otherwise paid in cash. I hope this will also be resolved with future updates. If anyone out there have a solution please be so kind to share and assist.
After all I still love the program.
