Combine G/L Accounts - linked to Job History Record

MYOB AccountRight allows to 'combine accounts' however it is now ineffective due to the constraint "account associated with a job'.  The 'combine accounts' feature did not previously have this restriction and allowed all transactions from the 'secondary account' to flow across to the 'primary account' with associated supplementary details, eg Job record.

Combine Accounts feature should not be restricted due to a Job record (this is supplementary info to the accounting record).

 

A proper Combine Accounts feature (ie, without Job record restriction) allows for a  easier way to 'Re-structure a General Ledger Chart of Accounts - due to a business/process change that has occurred over time' and will not impact accounting data integrity.

Re: Combine G/L Accounts - linked to Job History Record

Hi @AccountsCombine

 

I do know of this issue and this is an issue in the new software as the Classic v19 release did allow this. I have tagged this post with the developers and requested them to re-prioritise this issue to be fixed.

 

At this stage I cannot give an ETA on resolution though when I hear a response from the team, I shall update this thread.



Cheers,

Re: Combine G/L Accounts - linked to Job History Record

I am attempting to combine accounts and continue to get this error.

Unfortunately we are talking years and years of transactions and there is no possible way that we can go in and change or delete every single job code.  This would involve going into thousands of transactions.

Is there a way around this?

Why were we able to combine without issue on previous versions of MYOB, but your UPDATED version continues to give this error?

When will this be rectified so that we can combine accounts?

Re: Combine G/L Accounts - linked to Job History Record

Is there any update on this situation? It is extremely frustrating and restricting because the only work around I can determine is to manually journal the total out of the secondary account to the primary account and then mark the secondary account inactive however that impacts reporting because you are then unable to generate a detailed GL report if looking for specific transactions.

I would like to suggest that it should be high on the development priority list.

Is there any work around for this issue please?  

 

As mentioned by others, its not feasible to edit every single transaction to move them to another account - so the combine accounts function is basically useless.

 

Removing the job code from the transations does not help; it still will not combine the accounts.
