"Deposits & Prepaid Orders" linked account

  •  We do not use deposits & prepaid orders and so I do not want a linked account for this at all.  Therefor I have left the linked account on the set up forms blank.  I am getting a message saying that my file will not leave history mode until I designate a linked account for this.  Is there any way that I can avoid setting up a dummy account that I will never use?

  •  To leave history mode you must link accounts for deposits and prepaid orders. You can setup 'dummy' accounts and because they are linked you will not be able to make an entry to them in error.

     

  •  In this case, I would link the deposits and prepaid orders to the same account for the main aging. IE, if your accounts receivable linked account is #1200, then link the deposits and prepaid orders to #1200 as well. Same for accounts payable.

  •  This is a good suggestion.  Have done so.  Thanks!
