A couple of weeks have gone by and we are progressing nice and easy — on schedule and on budget. Our client has multiple entities (with thousands of data) and we are finished balancing on one and about 95% balanced to another with only 3 more to go.
The struggle has been with SAP and their transaction codes. Current FY data is sometimes hidden – which is a small struggle, but we persevere! Another small struggle for the client is trying to assist us in reconciling starting balances between what SAP could/can handle against what they’ve had to manipulate off-line out of the system. Hence the reason they are implementing Sage FAS Asset Accounting – NO OFF-LINE ADJUSTMENTS NECESSARY!
Remember when converting and implementing any system for the first time, the VERY first thing you should do is pick a date to balance out to. This ensures that no data gets left behind and you will have a clean start.
