Kyla's Reckon Hints and Tips


Avoiding Data Corruption


Always ensure you close your Reckon file correctly:

  • File
  • Close File – don't just click on the X to Close as this can corrupt your file

At least once a week verify your file:

  • File
  • Utilities
  • Verify Data – you will need to close all other windows prior to verifying your data. This will check your file for any errors, that way you know your file and backups are not corrupt

Rebuild your data your file at least once a month

  • File
  • Utilities
  • Rebuild File

This process is like compressing your file. You would also run a Rebuild if there were errors found in your file after running the Verify Data process.  Sometimes you need to Rebuild your file multiple times to fix data errors.


Backup your file


Ensure you regularly backup to another source apart from your hard drive i.e. USB stick or external hard drive


Set a Closing Date


Set a Closing Date on your file after every BAS period (preferably every month after the Bank Reconciliation is done).

  • Ensure your file is in single user mode
  • Go into Company
  • Set Closing Date
  • Set Date/Password

You can still make adjustments if required (you must have Administrator rights), but this will stop any transactions being accidentally entered or modified in a prior period.
