New in Sage 50 Accounts v24.2, you can now edit or delete items in your archive files. This feature was added to help you with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Edit your archived data
1. Click File then click Open and click Company Archive.
2. From the list of archived data, select the archive data you want to edit then click Open.
If access rights were set up on the company prior to archiving the data, you need to log into the archive with the same user name and password that you used to access the company data at the time.
You can now edit customer, supplier and subcontractor account details, or delete these records in line with the normal deletion rules.
Quotations, invoices, credit notes, sales orders and purchase orders can also be deleted.
You can also run the Clear Audit Trail routine within the archive.
3. To return to your company data, click File, choose Open then click Open Company Data.
