I've done it twice. It takes planning, but it's not as bad as some may expect. It's really a matter of ensuring that you don't forget anything, such as AFI rules, customer/supplier control accounts and so on. On both occasions I converted history too and with a methodical approach it's not bad. Allow a weekend for the conversion routines to run.

They are currently setup with 1 level and 1 extension code level. They would like to change this to be 2 chart of account levels and no extension code levels. My questions are therefore: 1. What is the best way to do this? 2. What effect will this haveon existing data? 3. When should we do this? Would it be something that should only be done at year end or can it be done in the middle of the year? 4. What happens if I switch off extension codes anyway? Will this mess anything up (even if I do not add the extra level)? 5. Anyone done it and what she we watch out for and what would the steps be? Thanks for all the help.
