    pastel ver 12

    Hi there im hoping someone can help me out on this one,I am currently still in my training phase on pastel version 12 and have started adding payments and receipts to cash book,when i was done with that i had to go into bank recon and both amounts that show on top were correct but when i started searching for the amounys on the bank statement half of them werent found so you guessed it,I did the entries all over again and now my recon is way off balance,i have found the new amounts but the rest show that its duplicated and I dont know how to resolve this,Is there any way of completely deleting all the entries on cash book and starting with a clean slate,please help I need to finish my book but cannot carry on otherwise everything else left in the lessons will be out of balance

    Seems the Pastel gurus are still on holiday.

    As I understand it, the way to reverse entries in Pastel is to capture them the same way as you did originally, except with a minus (-) sign before the values.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Not knowing who "they" are, I have absolutely no idea

    Hi melbvil! I doubt that you will be able to "erase" anything and start again. The only way to go back, is to restore your backup which you should be making frequently. (I do a backup every day.)

    If you do not have the luxury of restoring from a backup then you will have to correct your entries. To do this, (first make a backup) then copy your incorrect entry into the cash book exactly as before but this time make the amount negative. This effectively "reverses" the incorrect entry.
    An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't. - Anatole France
