Issue when upgrading multi currency file

I am having difficulties to upgrade my file from MYOB classic V19 into accounting Right using the multi currency - 

The file does not have any of the following : This is only an importator.

crossForeign sales
crossForeign purchases that use layouts other than Item and Service
crossGST on foreign transactions​
crossForeign general journals​

 

Many thanks for any help,

 

David

Re: Issue when upgrading multi currency file

Hi @David2310

 

The list you pasted explains the transactions types that AR2018.4 does not support. 

 

My understanding is that upgrading a v19 file is a different matter entirely. If your v19 file has multi currency switched on, it cannot be upgraded.  See https://community.myob.com/t5/Multi-Currency-Test-Drive/What-you-can-and-can-t-do-with-multi-currenc... where it states what you cannot do:

 

  • Upgrade from v19 multi-currency files – multi-currency users will require help from MYOB and their advisor to upgrade from v19 and use multi-currency in AccountRight 2018. We need to manually export data from v19 and import those transactions into ARL. (it’s complicated and time consuming)

While this may have changed with the later version, the image you pasted indicates your file has some of the listed transaction types that prevent upgrade at this stage.

 

Regards

Hey there! Welcome to the MYOB Forum!

 

If the software is throwing that message, it means it's detected a transaction in the datafile that meets any of that criteria. This would be checking your entire transaction history too. So if there was a transaction a few years ago, this will still cause problems.

 

There's a MYOB Help Wiki on how to upgrade Multi Currency files now too: Upgrading a Premier multi-currency company file

 

 

Looks like they're adding more and more upgrade ability as releases come out, so it might be worth waiting until the next release or the one after to upgrade as those tools would begin allowing the file to go through.
