Hi, I'm new to this, but here goes .....
When I make a card inactive I do not want it to reappear as a choice in Sales and Receive Payments. If I make the choice to make a card inactive, why do I then have to put zzz's infront of the name or combine with another card, it seems a bit silly to me as it doesn't take long to reactivate a card if you decide you need it again.
So... my idea is Inactive Cards should stay Inactive unless you go to the card file and make them Active manually.
Thank you for your response. I have version 2013.3 and if you start typing the name rather than clicking on the drop down arrow, Inactive cards still appear and can be used in both Enter Sales and Receive Pyaments.
Thank you for the update.
Marking a Card as Inactive, only stops it from appearing in the Select from list option. As you've found, the system will allow you use these Inactive cards in transactions and bring them in reports, unless they are Combined with another card or Deleted from the Cards List.
To prevent these cards from being used we do recommend adding ZZZs to the front of the card name.
I run version 2012.10 and the problem that BBW reported does not exist.
Perhaps it has only become a problem in 2013.3
Can you please check that out?
As far as I'm aware "recommending ZZZs to the front of the card name" still does apply to V19 and earlier.

I have tested this in 2012.9 (I didn't have 2012.10 installed) and you are certainly correct it wasn't an error at this time. It does look like it's an error that has occured in a later update. I will make sure this feedback is passed on to the appropriate team.
In regards to the 'ZZZ's, while the new AccountRight does have the ability to hide inactive cards, I can see it still may be helpful to rename your cards for easier sorting.
Have a great afternoon
I am using AR2013.5. And I wish the inactive cards would not appear when I start typing a customer name in the Sales Invoice or Payment window.
Just making them invisible in the drop down list is not good enough for me.
I use the keyboard as much as possible, to prevent RSI and because it is a lot quicker when you have a load of invoices to enter, to start typing the name you want to use.
Putting Zz in front of customer names is a fix, but it is time consuming to do.
why can you still make a sale to an inactive customer very frustrating !! Surely this can be fixed
This needs to be fixed as it is certainly happening again in the 2014.4 version.
