AccountRight 19.2 - working on a backup

I want to work on a backup copy of our AccountRight 19.2 MYOB OFFLINE - I'm trying out new reports etc and don't want to use the main company file that's online. How do I open a backup copy to work locally, totally separate from the online file?

Hi @TAD 

To restore a backup of the company file you would go to File>>Restore>>Select the desired backup file you will then be able to select where you wish to save the file. If you wish to restore that backup file locally you would select the In a library on my computer or on my network



Note: When you restore a company file it creates a separate instance of that company file, which is not related to the original file. So a new transaction entered into the online file will not be included in the restored local company file.


Our Help Article: Restore your company file contains more information on that process.

Do let us know how you get on and if you require further assistance
