Renaming .RKN data files
I know this question has been asked many times before and I have had the problem myself many times over the years but this time nothing seems to work. I normally call my data files in Home & Business "Carl data' as I am very aware that Reckon doesn't play nicely when you have long file names. Over the last week, when I back up, Reckon keeps adding the date to the file name & I know if this continues, I am going to have problems. Restore only recognises .QDF and not .RKN files and if you restore a .QDF file the .QPH files do not transfer. By memory all I have done in the past was to rename all the latest files, RKN, .QPH etc. by dropping dates from the end but this time it is not working. I have also had a couple of very strange occurrences over the last couple of days. First when I downloaded my share prices on Monday, it came up with an astronomical figure and thought I had won the lottery, so closed the program and when I reopened it and did the download again, everything was back to normal. Yesterday when I opened the program, one of my accounts was showing a zero balance with no transactions. Again, when I reopened the program, everything was good. I only hope this doesn't mean that Reckon is finally going to die on me with over 20 years of records!
