Sage Pastel Open Item/Balance Forward Conversion
Customer and Supplier accounts can be created to be either Open Item or Balance Forward.
Should you wish to change the current processing method you will use the Open Item/ Balance Forward Conversion Assistant.
REQUIREMENTS BEFORE YOU BEGIN...
You must be the only person in Pastel.
You must have a supervisor password.
You must have all batches updated.
You must have made a backup, as this cannot be undone.
Please take note of the following important change:
When this assistant completes, the statement / remittance printout will no longer show prior months invoices and payments individually on the customers statement or suppliers remittance.
All your invoices, journals and payments will have been added together, and show as one entry, per period, as an "Opening Balance" total on the top line of the statement.
This happens because Pastel needs to do a refresh calculation of the account, to get to the correct balance on the account. This is only for THIS CURRENT PERIOD IN TIME when you run this procedure.
Hereafter when you update the batches for this customer/supplier, the entries will start to show individually again on the statement/supplier account.
