Hi Everyone :),
First time here so please go easy on me.
I am in charge of IT at this institute and yesterday my CFO called me and said that the accountants told her about a wrong entry that has been made couple of years back (3).
the entry is to the tune of $209,000
During that time we we were running simply accounting 2006.
we did do an upgrade and currently running sage 50 quantum 2018.
The accountants were kind enough to blame IT and say...it was because of data corruption.
I am completely lost over here trying to figure out how the consistent updates i did from 2006 version to 2018...that is i made sure all the database was migrated properly, with the sage tool.
I also checked for consistency. everything checked out.
I do have a back up clone from the time before the update.
my question here is, does the accusation of data corruption hold and valid point ?
or could it have just been a mistaken entry ( like $209,000 instead of $209)?
or could the zeroes could have been added during the database update?
Is there anyway to fix this ? apparently they ( accountants) tried fixing it and it wouldn't let them ( no idea what this means).
from and IT point of view..I understand data corruption can happen during migrations, but that is why we always have back ups and clones.
also, i don't believe data corruption can add extra zeroes ? please feel free to correct me if i am wrong.
