Renaming accounts

General ledger accounts can be renamed if they have not had any journal activity. They can only be renamed in the current financial year.
Initially, the renaming of accounts is only performed in the general ledger table. Run this program when you are ready to update the following sub-systems:

  • debtors
  • creditors
  • general ledger linked tables
  • payroll
  • sales
  • assets.

That is, you can create next year's general ledger and rename accounts but have to wait until all processing has been completed in the sub-systems before you update them using this program.

To rename general ledger accounts in sub-systems:

  1. Select Module > General Ledger > Apply General Ledger Rename.
    The Apply General Ledger Rename window is displayed.
  2. Click .
    The account is renamed.
