Can I turn off the restrictions on working with last FY accounts after creating an Accountant's copy?

As a novice Reckon user, I conscientiously followed the EOFY steps laid out in my trusty Dummies guide book...so I created an Accountant's Copy of the last FY file. Unfortunately, I didn't read ahead to understand that I wouldn't be able to make any necessary additions or amendments to the whole year before importing accountant's changes. 

I sent the file to the auditor, explaining the situation, but have had no response. I really need to be able to make corrections before the audit in September. Is there some way I can turn off or reverse the restrictions applied?

Just make the corrections in the normal data file; and then make another Accountants copy and send that to the accountant

You also need to turn off the Accountants copy before making any changes and creating a new copy

Hi Charles. Thanks, but I don't have "client activities" in my menu, only "import..." or "cancel accountant's changes". I'm using Hosted.
