So löschen Sie eine Rechnung in Sage 100

For new users of accounting software Sage 100, the need to delete a bill may arise due to various reasons such as errors or unauthorized payments. However, it is crucial to understand that deleting a bill can significantly impact your financial records, making it essential to follow proper procedures to ensure data integrity and accuracy. In this article, we provide a comprehensive guide for beginners on how to delete a bill in Sage 100 safely and effectively.

Step 1: Navigate to the “Bills” settings

To delete a bill in Sage 100, start by navigating to the "Bills" tab located at the top of the screen.

In the dropdown menu, select "Show all bills."

Use the system background color to mark the bill you intend to delete for easy identification.

Step 2: Initiate the deletion process

Click on the "Delete" button that appears under the "Actions" column for the marked bill. A confirmation message will appear, asking if you are sure you want to delete the bill. Be cautious and read through this message carefully before confirming your decision. Additionally, a warning may appear if the bill belongs to a popular vendor or customer, alerting you of potential downstream effects on other transactions.

Step 3: Choose deletion options

Once confirmed, Sage 100 will ask you whether you want to delete all relevant data associated with the invoice or just disconnect its relationship with the vendor/customer. This decision depends on your specific requirements and should be made carefully, taking into account any potential implications for future reporting or analysis. For instance, deleting a bill may affect your accounts receivable aging report, making it important to evaluate which data is necessary to maintain an adequate accounting record.

Step 4: Create a recall invoice as a safety measure

To mitigate the risks of deleting a bill, we recommend creating a recall invoice before completing the process. A recall invoice allows you to re-create the original transaction with all its relevant data, providing a safety net should you need to reinstate the record in the future. Once created, this new invoice will appear under the "Recalled Invoices" tab and can be accessed whenever required.

In conclusion, mistakes in processing bills can lead to significant accounting errors and inconsistencies. By following these steps carefully when deleting a bill within Sage 100, you can effectively manage your financial records while maintaining data accuracy and integrity.
