I misunderstood how to setup the stock accounts for the categories of products :((( C:\fakepath\erroneous configuration of product categories.jpg This results in a complete mess in my accounting records for stocks since january 1st.

None of the period are closed since january 1st.

What will happen to my accounting records if I now change the various accounts which are set up ?

  • Will all past accounting entries be moved to the new accounts?
  • OR will the new accounts apply for future entries?

I think that old records are still wrong, but new records will get the correct value for expense and purchase.

So when you have changed the accounting accounts, you have to modify the existing records to match the correct accounts. This requires a script to be made....

This requires a script to be made.... OR EXPORTING/REIMPORTING because I am using the Saas online offer! Hundreds of accounting lines to change!

Exporting/importing should do the trick as well, and with a CSV, you can easily search/replace on a given column. Just make sure you have got 1 correct example in your download, so you know what to replace with what.
