You may flag an account as inactive to prevent it from being used on future transactions. However, if the account is referenced on a CONTROL, INVLOC, MRKCODE, STAX or VENDOR record, you will not be able flag the account as inactive until the account number has been changed on those records. In addtion, transactions that already reference the account number are not affected. It is recommended that you run GLCHART.R2 after flagging an account as inactive. This report will print a listing of inactive accounts that are still posted to open records such as a/p, a/r, s/o, etc. The report will, also, list control or set-up records using the inactive accounts. This important to prevent an inactive account from being used in the future.
