Archiving old data

One of the big benefits of using Sage200cloud is the ability to archive older data.  You may have used Sage200cloud for a long time but after a while, some screens may start to get slower – selecting criteria on a report, selection lists when trying to view an order or an account transaction list, and numerous other functions.

Rather than running with a slower system, you can archive your:

Coupled with the ability to hide accounts in newer versions of Sage200cloud, you can really cut down on the information displayed, without losing anything!

An example below relates to the Supplier/Customer/Nominal transactions side.

With Customers/Suppliers/Nominal, most things work the same way. Once you have archived some older data, you can see the customer Transaction Enquiry below shows the “Current” transactions (transactions not archived):


And then within the “Historical” tab (that is where the archived transactions live) you can see details of the archived transactions.  You can still use the drilldown functionality to see details of Nominal codes affected, allocation details etc.


That means, when you run a Transaction Listing report (Current), then the report will be much shorter.  If you then want to report on the Historic transactions, there are separate reports for these.
