Slow MYOB Premier?
You may want to look at upgrading to the MODERN version of MYOB it may suit your business set-up.
Here are a few tips to improve performance of MYOB Premier if you do find you are having speed issues.
Are you operating in the current financial year? To find out what year you are operating in go to the Menu Bar -> Setup -> Company Information. You should see the year you are working in the bottom right hand corner. Is it the current year? If it does not you need to investigate. DO NOT roll over your company file without checking with your accountant and referring to your company financial statements. I suggest you also make an appointment for a MYOB Certified Consultant to visit (even if it is not us!) to ensure everything is done efficiently and effectively.
When did you last optimise the company file? An optimisation is like a DEFRAG of your company file. You may need to allow an hour or more for this process to run, and no-one will be able to access the data file while it is optimising. Maybe do it just as you go out for lunch? Take a back-up of your company file; turn your screen saver off during the process, go to the Menu Bar -> File -> Optimise Company File. When the process has finished remember to turn your screen saver back on.
Are you storing unprinted cheques on your system? Go to the Banking Command Centre->CLICK on Print Cheques. Print these cheques to a PDF and then delete them. You may want to change your preferences so they do not accumulate in future. Goto Setup -> Preferences -> Banking TAB -> tick the box Default cheque is already printed.
