Fiscal Year 2016 closed by mistake!


I have an issue with a customer who has closed the fiscal year 2016 by mistake.All accounting periods are now closed.

He's using NAV 2013

1. Is there any way to reopen them?

2. If not, what effects will this have in the following months ?Any problem with the inventory or depreciation or others...


Please, any advice is appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

  • And you're right again - in my 25 years working with NAV I have only met one user (an auditor) who actually knew and used this functionality. But it's there, and as I learned when 30 years ago was in intern in an accounting department for 2 years, then when it comes to accounting then it's always "Ordnung muss sein". [:)]

    As far as I remember then the accounting period table is "protected" like g/l entries etc., and therefor requires full license to allow you to run and change directly? If that's not the case, then you're right, then it could be done without it. Still nothing an user should know how to do. If it happens by a mistake once, then it typically doesn't happen again with that user.

    And - you work for a partner, so get one of your NAV developers to look at it. If he/she has done it before, then it only takes about 30 minutes - 1 hour (incl. registering time in the billing system). So its nothing major. My guess is that you've already spent more time on just checking it, trying yourself and writing about it here (not to say the time spent by Neil, Modris and myself also used - in the name of helping others to become better at using NAV).

    But present the options to the user. I'm sure that they know they "screwed up" and would like it to be fixed.
