If you have a large company file (500MB or larger), starting a new financial year (rolling over) can take a long time - sometimes hours. To check your company file size, go to the Accounts command centre and click Company Data Auditor. The displayed window shows the size of your company file.
Interrupting the rollover process can damage the company file. If this happens, the entire rollover process will need to be started again. In some cases, your company file will need to be repaired.

Before rolling over
From within each command centre in AccountRight, go to the File menu and choose Purge (this command will vary depending on the command centre you're in). Follow the onscreen prompts to determine the data you will purge. After purging within a command centre, go to the File menu and choose Optimise.
Recommendations for rolling over a large company file
- Ensure you perform the company file rollover on the computer where the company file is stored. Never roll over a company file across a network.
- If the company file returns any errors during an Optimise or Verify, search this help for details on your error. A rollover of a company file should not be attempted when errors are appearing.
- Rollover the company file overnight. This will minimise the impact of processing time.
