The new version Accounts Hosted opening an old version of your company file

  • Acknowledged
Some users are finding that the new version of Reckon Accounts Hosted is opening an old file.  This may happen under some circumstances and is not affecting everyone.

Reckon apologises for the inconvenience this is causing.  

You will know that the last company file opened is not being found if you were asked to upgrade a file that you have already used in the 2014 R3 version.    You should do the following:

Examine all Folders and Shared Shortcuts in your Q-drive for files.  When you find your company file, take note of the date alongside - the date last saved.  If it is not the latest date of access, keep looking until you find the company file with the correct latest date accessed.  

If you cannot find your latest accessed company file then contact Technical Support immediately.

regards, John.

John, Contacting technical support IMMEDIATELY is an expensive joke. I am in my 38th minute on hold and sitting here reading about everyone else's 2 hour wait. What a messy, unprofessional service we are paying for. Never, ever again will I use or recommend  Reckon Hosted for my clients. You have become worse at upgrades and worse in technical support over 3 years. Not a record to be proud of.
Same, all I'm getting is a black screen.

Hi chierie,

Sorry to hear you have been hit by this issue.  The solution is the same as if an older version of your file opens:

Examine all Folders and Shared Shortcuts in your Q-drive for files.  When you find your company file, take note of the date alongside - the date last saved.  If it is not the latest date of access, keep looking until you find the company file with the correct latest date accessed.  

If you cannot find your latest accessed company file then contact Technical Support immediately.

Hope you find your file there.

regards,
John.

Cherie, where did you find your file?

Was it not in the same location you had it previously?

Am still on hold to Reckon support too. This is third phone call - last phone call was 35min and went completely silent, no on hold music, I had no idea whether I was still on hold at all! So hung up and have finally got through again - already up to 20mins.

Hi John 

It would great if we can get your direct line and get some assistance as your 1300 number is constantly engaged.

Hi SR,

Sorry to hear of the problems you are experiencing and the delays on the telephone - a few people are experiencing your issue and you should do the following:

Examine all Folders and Shared Shortcuts in your Q-drive for files.  When you find your company file, take note of the date alongside - the date last saved.  If it is not the latest date of access, keep looking until you find the company file with the correct latest date accessed.  

If you cannot find your latest accessed company file then you have no alternative but contact Technical Support immediately.  We expect the delays to progressively diminish.  

We are sorry for the inconvenience the change to the new version is causing you.


regards,
John

John I can't even log back in to the system to look for my file! I had logged in this morning but had to get out and now it won't recognise the new password and I have no idea where the forgotten password email is going because it isn't to me! I had clearly found an old version as I was asked to upgrade so I did but I don't know if I am missing the current file! Given how many other users are screaming I would imagine that I am missing the file as it isn't the first time I have lost data at the expense of reckon!

Where is my last saved file? All I see is 3 shared folders with QBW files dates 24 July 2014 - not my last date of access. What is going on here?
Having just increased my monthly fee by 30%, I would expect a better upgrade experience!
