Problem adding new departments

Post by irenasobolewska » 09 May 2011, 12:21

I am on SAGE 50 Accounts Professional 2008 v14

I have set up some departments but now they are not all showing and when I add one it changes the previous ones name and contents etc to the new one I have just added. As an example I had a department ref 201. When I add a dept ref 204 it changes the dept ref of 201 (and all its YTD values) to 204 and adds another dept 204 with exactly the same contents. When I change one of the 204 references back to 201 it changes both the 204s back to 201. I can't create a 202 or 203 ref because it says it already exists (I did set them up) but they have dissapeared and I can't find them. I am obviously doing something wrong - how can I fix this.

Also, when I run a transactional P&L report usign the reference numbers I have given the departments they show as empty. SAGE does however seem to have its own numbering for the departments I have set up. For instance it seems to think that my reference 101 is department 32 (it's about the 32nd dept I have set up). I can find out by trial and error what the SAGE dept number is for my department references but I wonder why this is happening?

You can not actually add new departments in V2008 as all 1000 departments 000-999 are already created.

You edit them and change them to have non blank names.

I suspect you are editing the same one all the time.
