Is there a way to highlight customers who have no transactions recorded, and then to Delete them in Bulk, or perhaps rename them to sort into order to Delete them?
Hosted is not really an option - not until we get onto the NBN and a guaranteed of a good connection.
Is there any way of exporting the Customer list - doing the edit (customer delete) externally, then re-importing to Reckon Books?
you can flag the customers by setting up a type - delete, Export the cust list in excel, add delete to all those cust, delete all other cust from excel, then re-import cust list - BACK up before re-importing.
then in the cust centre - go to view and customise columns to include the type in the list. Then sort list alphabetically. The start on first cust - ctrl D on keyboard, click enter, - this should take you to next cust, ctrl D, enter. if you use left hand for ctrl D and right to click enter it is the fastest - also you can keep ctlr down and just lift on and off the D. Give that a go!
Sounds like a lot to do but this is all very quick!!
