I have a Reckon Accounts Home & Business Personal Plus 2013 and I trying to write a Invoice . A pop up appears that my Invoice/ Estimate List is full and I can't proceed ( can't enter any Invoices at all ) . I'm sitting at 1500+ Invoices but it should not been  limited . Someone has any ideas what I can do ?

Hi Simone,
The below is an excerpt from a seperate Knowledgebase article.

If your invoice list has reached the 1500 limit, you will need to create a new data file. Archive data from before this financial year.

  • File > File Operations > Year-End Copy;
  • Under Current Data File click on I only want transactions in my current data file starting with this date: and enter the first date for this file – eg: 1/7/20xx;
  • Under Archive Data file:

a. For Give the archive file a name and location: select a location and if desired alter the default name;

b. For This archive data file will contain transactions up to an including: enter the day before the first day of the new file – eg: 30/6/20xx;

  • Click OK to carry out the process;
  • When complete, choose to open the Current file.
