1 Deleting unwanted historical unposted batches prior to commencing finance module

This is irreversible so take a backup in case of errors. It is advisable to do this on test data first and then on main data. The process only deletes unposted records. At the time of writing, AF found no way to verify which exact version could be categorised as before or after 2009 and hence he suggests you should do this in test data first.

The instructions say LT 2008.12 or LT 0812 - "LT" means LESS THAN ie NOT including the period mentioned so it is the first period you want to KEEP!

1.1 NEOSYS versions after mid-2009

1.1.1 Clearing both posted & unposted items

F5
SELECT BATCHES WITH YEAR_PERIOD LT "2008.12"

SELECT VOUCHERS WITH YEAR_PERIOD LT "0812"
DELETE VOUCHERS
FLUSH.INDEX
UTIL - this prepares maintenance to run the next command
CHK.VINDEX               ("0" for all periods and delete all missing voucher entries and clear all empty index records)
FLUSH.INDEX
CLEARFILE BALANCES

2 Deleting selected vouchers from open item statements

This may be useful in fixing some types of cross check balance errors. It must be done in maintenance mode using F5.

2.1 Method 1 - Recreation

Delete all and rebuild using CHK.ALLOC. This method is the easiest but takes longer and cannot be done while users are online.

AAAA is the ORIGINAL account no and CCC is the company code

DELETE VOUCHER.INDEX *AAAA*CCC
CHK.ALLOC

2.2 Method 2 - Editing

Direct editing using Ctrl+G, Ctrl+D, F9 and Esc.

WARNING: You can easily delete the wrong entries. If so then use Method 2 to recover.

WARNING: Do not remain in edit long if there are users online who might post to this account and company otherwise their posting will hang and maybe crash resulting in unrecoverably corrupt finance data requiring restoration of a backup and loss of all users work since the last backup.

After you list the vouchers in step 2 you will be able to see which ones (lines) you need to delete. The order in the edit is the same as the order in the list. Delete in reverse order, last lines first so the order is unchanged until you delete a line.

AAAA is the ORIGINAL account no and CCC is the company code

SELECTVOUCHERS AAAA 1
LIST VOUCHERS DATE VOUCHER_PERIOD
ED VOUCHERS *AAAA*C
