Prior Year Database

Menu Item Help Arrow Head Locate Prior Year Database (2018)

 

The Client (Filer, Entity) Management module maintains your clients in distinct annual databases that can be rolled forward from year-to-year without any loss of prior year integrity. If you used Account Ability in 2018, you will probably want to roll forward the 2018 client register (see Client (Filer) Management).

 

If a prior year database, AA2018.abs, is not found, an exception is raised

 

Prior Year Data Not Found

 

If this should happen, use the selection

 

Locate Prior Year Database (2018)

 

on the Help menu to search alternate locations for AA2018.abs

 

note Notes

 

An alternative way to locate prior year data is to exit the 2019 version of Account Ability, run the 2018 version and select About Account Ability's Database (2018) on the Help menu.
Instructions for rolling forward the client register can be found in the section Importing & Exporting Clients.
