I have a client who wants me to enter data for a period before I started. Can I do this in the current file in Reckon Accounts Plus 2014 or do I have two Company files?

    Hi Glenda,

    Another tip would be in the edit drop down menu > preferences > accounting > company preferences > untick the past days box otherwise you will get a message about it being more than 90 days in the past for every transaction you enter.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Kevin, thanks for your reply.  Only problem when I do this is the bank reconciliation opening balance is incorrect.  Any ideas please.
