For the AccountRight 2019.3 release, we've added functions to some of our most popular features, including: 

  • Multi-currency changes–– Send statements to your overseas customers, enter item prices in foreign currencies and easily access the currency calculator when changing rates in transactions.
  • Bank feed rule enhancements–– Take transaction coding to the next level by creating bank feed rules that match transactions by a dollar amount. And for Australian businesses, bank feed rules can now be set up to mark taxable payments as reportable.
  • In Tray enhancements–– Create a spend money transaction by uploading a document to the In Tray, saving you time on tedious data entry.

Plus bug fixes and a set of small but helpful improvements.

 

[Premier only] Multi-currency enhancements 

Send statements to your overseas customers 

When sending statements to your overseas customers the amounts will now display in your customers currency. You can also add a currency code to your personalised statement to display the currency on your statement.

Item prices entered in foreign currency value

Item prices can now be entered in the foreign value. We’ve made this change to reflect how AccountRight v19 handled items and multi-currency.

Easily access the currency calculator when changing transaction rates

If you need to manually calculate the exchange rate, you can now easily access the currency calculator when changing the rate on a transaction.

Smarter bank feed rules

Create rules for a dollar amount

You make the rules and AccountRight plays by them. You can now set up bank feed rules for specific amounts. So, if you have regular amounts going through your bank account each month, set up bank feed rules for those amounts. AccountRight will then identify them and take care of the rest.

Create rules for reportable contractor payments (Australia only)

Marking taxable payments as reportable has always been a manual process…until now. Say hello to a new bank feed rule option which does it for you.

For more information, see Bank feed rules.

 

Create a spend money transaction from an In Tray document

You can now create a spend money transaction by uploading a document, such as a receipt, to the In Tray. This enables you to save time on manual data entry. AccountRight uses some smarts to read and automatically fill in as many of the fields on the transaction as possible.

 

All you need to do is check the details that have been automatically entered and enter any additional details that are needed.

 

If you use In Tray to create spend money transactions, you'll also:

  • know that expense documents are stored securely online and easy to access
  • have a proof of purchase for transactions, which is important for compliance.

You can add documents and use them to create spend money transactions or link them to existing ones - just go to the Banking command centre, click In Tray and choose an option.

With your documents securely stored in AccountRight, you can then move the emailed originals to that special folder – trash!

Workflow improvements and bug fixes

As always, this release includes some smaller changes and improvements to keep AccountRight running smoothly.

New fields on invoice forms

Improvement: There are 2 new columns available to use on item invoice and purchase order forms:

Invoices> Item:

  • EX PRICE 2 (price excluding tax)
  • INC PRICE 2 (price including tax)

Purchases Orders > Item:

  • EX PRICE 2 (price excluding tax)
  • PRICE 2 (price including tax)

These columns are formatted to 2 decimal places instead of 6.

 

Faster reporting

Improvement: We’ve improved the speed of the Business Insights Dashboard and the following reports:

  • Sales reports:
    • Customer - Analyse Sales [Customer - FY Comparison]
    • Salesperson - Custom Payment
    • Other Sales Report - GIS Customers
  • Accounts reports:
    • Categories - GL Summary
    • Balance Sheet - Balance Sheet
    • Balance Sheet - Balance Sheet Last Year Analysis
  • Others reports:
    • Inventory - Pricing - Price List Details
    • Other Purchase Reports - Bill Transactions Accrual

Copy transaction lists

Improvement: Easily copy data from each tab on the Find Transactions window with a simple right-click > Copy List to Clipboard. You can then paste the data into other documents, like Excel.

 

[Premier only} Multi-currency bug fixes

Fixed: We’ve fixed an issue where several reports were showing incorrect data on foreign currency transactions. These reports include:

  • Accounts Receivable Reconciliation Summary/Details reports
  • Accounts Payable Reconciliation Summary/Details reports

Fixed: We’ve fixed a validation issue on Foreign Recurring Purchases and Sales (Foreign Recurring Purchases and Sales aren’t supported yet).

Fixed: We’ve fixed an issue in which upgraded Classic AccountRight (v19) company files had incorrect balances showing on the bank reconciliation report.

Fixed: Fixed a bug where gains and losses were overstated or understated on transactions with deposits.

 

Other bug fixes

Fixed: Column widths weren’t saving in sales.
Fixed: Importing data caused a (DataChangedConflict) error.
Fixed: Payroll Advice report ordered employees by first name.

 

How to update

You'll be prompted to update when you open your company file, or you can download the AccountRight PC Edition now (subscription required).

If you need a different version (Server Edition, MSI, or older versions), you can find it on our AccountRight downloads page.

No it wasn't that bug. It is a magor bug with the software that has been in ARL since inception in 2013 which MYOB continually ignores.

Hope they've also fixed that AR 2019.1 and 2019.2 bug which caused Bank Reconciliations to show wage payments with the first line of the employee's address, rather than their name.

Hi,

My statements are still displaying "$" for a GBP based client.

I have gone into my plain paper statement and there is a field there called 'currency symbol' but it is displaying a dollar sign instead of a pounds sign when I print the statement?

Can someone tell me if they fixed the multi-currency issue in reports?

All my reports are displayed in AUD and it frustrates the life out of me... how am i meant to print a list of what's owing in the wrong currency ?!?!

LOVE "Spend Money" being an option in the in tray! You have just saved me Hours! 

Also love the currency calculator in the currency exchange rate window. 

Thanks for putting the effort into some nice time saving features.

Not that I can see KGatBarron

The work around we use is that I have the currency set up in the card file as the identifier and I just run reports on those identifiers. Not ideal but gets the result in the end. You could also use "custom list" if you wanted. 

 

MYOB I understand that doing this would take a massive amount of programming time so perhaps you could start by jsut asdding "currency" to the "available columns" in some of the reports. so that we can filter by that? Would be a better work around that using my above option as it means you won't missing anything if you have forgotten to add the identifier or if you have a supplier/customer that you use multiple currencies for.

I have just upgraded 3 files and now am unable to get bank feeds as it says the username and password is incorrect, but it most definitely is correct.

 

Anyone else?

New fields on invoice forms

Improvement: There are 2 new columns available to use on invoice forms:

  • Unit Price Tax Inc.
  • Unit Price Tax Ex.

These columns are formatted to 2 decimal places instead of 6.

 

 


If I reprint an invoice that was showing 6 decimals, does the above fix that automatically or do I need to edit my invoice and replace that column with one of above new columns then reprint? (Because reprinting current invoice still shows 6 decimals.)

 

Edit: I don't see Unit Price Tax inc or ex. ARe these in Customize forms or somewhere else??

happily updating invoice forms with the 2 decimal place fields! thank you for that - haven't tested sales form column widths being saved yet though.

 

cheers!

HI @CDFFDC 

 

The ExPrice2 and IncPrice2 columns need to be added to the table by clicking on the table and then going to Table Layout >> Show/Hide Columns. This will allow you to add additional columns to the invoice table and remove unneeded ones.

 

In contrast the Fields option on the toolbar adds individual fields, unconnected with the transactional information contained within the invoice table

Ok, but now it just adds it to the end and won't let me move it to where ExPrice was... smh.

Hi @CDFFDC 

 

There’s two ways you can reorder the columns on an invoice table. Either by adding the columns in the order you want them to appear or by clicking on the heading and dragging that column across to the desired location in between other columns

NO THEY HAVE NOT FIXED THE CURRENCY SYMBOL  IN UNIT PRICES. STILL NOT INCLUDED IN THE PREFERENCES (EVEN DESELECTING SHOW CURRENCY IN WINDOWS) ALL UPDATES ARE FOR MYOB PREMIER ONLY. SO INSTEAD OF GETTING ACCOUNTRIGHT, WE COULD HAVE GOTTEN PREMIER! LESS WORRIES, LESS PRICEY.

Thanks again @Neil_M , but both ways you describe no longer work in v2019.3. Have you tried it?

 

I've now fixed it but this is how:

 

- Click show/hide columns (this brings up the 'available columns' and 'columns in your table' as you mentioned)

- If I replace ExPrice with Ex price 2, it adds Ex Price 2 to the end

- I then have to remove the next column and add it back, but it adds it back in the same order it was with Ex Pric 2 at the end

- repeat for the rest of the columns

 

As I mentioned this adds them back in the same order they already were but with Ex Price 2 at the end, but when you press ok, Ex Price 2 is in the proper order.

 

?????? how is this acceptable???

 

Have a look at my form now:

2019-09-23_14h25_07.jpg

 

 

And doing it the other way won't let you 'grab' the column and move it. It just lets you adjust the width. Is it broken??

@CDFFDC 

it worked for me - I added the field, it went to the end, then I deleted the old field and dragged the new one into place.

Why are bank feed transactions now allocating a chq no. rather than "EFT" for the Transaction ID no. and is there any way to change this back to EFT?

I find this new software 2019 accountright is still riddled with problems. I ran with version 19 for years without issue. Now I find myself just about everyday looking at MYOB community posts to see if others are having the same issues that I experience. I would really appreciate a call from MYOB from somebody that actually understands the software, not some help centre operator that has no clue.

Hi Everyone,

 

Since updating I have notice that in the when I bring up reports from the INDEX that the report windows are missing the usual - Minimise/ Maximis/ Close icons?

 

Is it just me or is it a thing in the update?

 

Thanks

Column widths weren’t saving in quote form either, please fix WITHOUT forcing the expense of an update. It's an MYOB error, MYOB should fix it!

since upgrading it has truncated leading zero's in invoices and part number's when exporting to excel. Any solution to this?

Hello @call23 

As I understand it you have exported from MYOB as a text file.

Have excel open first and then select the text file you want to open. It will give you the text entry wizard and in step 3 (I think it is 3!) select these columns as text fields.

The leading zeros should then show.

 

cheers

Hi @JamieFCA 

 

We are aware that in v2019.3 Spend Money/Receive Money transactions created automatically by bank rules are switching 'EFT' and the transaction ID. Our developers are currently investigating this problem and working towards a fix. I'm afraid that the only workaround right now is clicking into the transactions and manually edit the ID field. 

 

Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

Hi @LaineW @AussieWendy 

 

Sorry about the trouble you are experiencing. Currently in v2019.3, the Item Register window does not display transactions if filtered by an item with 0 qty in hand. Our developers are investigating the root cause and working towards a fix as soon as possible. 

 

In the meantime, you can workaround it by generating the Item Register Report to view the information.

So just updated to 2019.3 and this is still not fixed...

 

https://community.myob.com/t5/AccountRight-Staffing-and/Payroll-Advice-report-bug-for-YTD-column-in-...

 

I cannot understand why such a coding bug would be this difficult to squash... plus it isn't like there is a legal requirement in Australia for these records to be reliable & correct... oh wait...

 

This was reported and demonstrated to your support team with a remote desktop connection in May!!!! I suppose it is simply too much to ask a modern accounting package to add up figures in the payroll reports!

Hi @PowerMyobBI, thank you for your query.

 

I have reached out to our Ecosystems team for more information on this. Will post back, as soon as I hear back from them.

This new release broke many reports. For our business it broke the Autobuild Items report in inventory. It I now IMPOSSIBLE TO EXTRACT OUT Bill of Materials line items from MYOB into Excel. There is absolutely NO OTHER WAY TO GET THIS DATA OUT TO LOOK AT.  This is a major flaw in the software.

As a manufacturing business it is imperative that we have this report working. 

 

We were looking to upgrade to MYOB Advanced - a significant investment - But We have now lost confidence in MYOB's ability to properly implement upgrades with so called "improvements". We will eventually be looking at another provider when we can invest the funds.

 

As a severely drought affected business in NSW employing over 30 staff we did not need this impediment to our operations.

An URGENT FIX IS REQUIRED

I just moved from Accountright Plus to meet STP requirements. Accountright is slow...unbearably slow...its taking too much business time. Is there and improvement being planned?

This release has still not fixed the column width not saving issue for any of my Sales Orders and Sales Invoices screens, however it appears to have worked for my Sales Quotes screen. Is there something that needs to happen to the default template files before the bug fix works? Like deleting or renaming the old template files so that new ones can be created?

Hi @dilliramkhatri 

 

Back in May 2014, we introduced Premier company files to the AccountRight Live range. With multi-currency being introduced in stages from AccountRight 2018.3 onwards, with AccountRight 2019.2 being the version that allowed AccountRight Classic mulit-currency Premier files to be migrated.
