Would be great if Reckon would allow access to the archiving function in the latest versions of all Reckon products; very disappointed this can't be utilised anymore. Why was this feature removed?

Hi Glenda,

Not sure where you read that this feature is no longer available but it's definitely still available.

To find this feature, please go to File > Utilities > Clean Up Company Data.

Please understand though, by archiving your data file, this does not reduce the size of the file nor does it make it any faster.

Further to Luke's comments Glenda - this is why it isn't used much anymore...  most Accredited Partners like myself believe its better to start a new fresh file and then have all the transaction history in the old file to refer back to - the Clean Up Company Data - will condense transactions into journals and you lose the history/details - so you may as well have a full historical file - and start a new fresh file, removing old and unwanted list items when you start...

I called Reckon and they said this feature has been disabled on later versions. Probably after 2013.
