I Agree with you on this one as long as Sage remembers to allow these accounts to still be included in reports.
along with the inactive flag, we need a do-not-post flag - making the account un-selectable in all transactions
sage knows how to make unselectable accounts- they do it now with linked accounts
Hi, what I do is change the name slightly in the modification so you know it is an account you do not want people to use. I change it by adding about 5 stars in front of the name and when someone goes to use the account they will see a difference. If it is an old account I have again put stars in front of the name but changed the name to "DO NOT USE". Not as ideal as making it inactive but it helps.
Usually a GL account can be set as inactive after you have switched to a new year, provided there is no balance in it
In order to make an account inactive, it must have no activity or balance in the current or prior year. There used to be a report that would show which accounts can be made inactive, but it was a *Crystal* report and is now gone.
