Dear All,

I need some advice.

We are running Style Distribution & Production (Aurora v1.2) and Finance
(SP5). All postings are done manually, and relevant data (customers,
exchange rates, etc.) are entered into both systems.

We now wish to upgrade Finance to Aurora, but the Finance Dept want to
continue doing all postings manually. Although I have worked with S21 for
many years, I have managed to largely keep clear of the Finance modules, so
I am not totally confident about it, but (as far as I can see) there are
two ways of achieving this.

1. Create a new environment for Finance. Write a few trigger problems to
keep the relevant data synchronised.
2. Migrate Finance to the same environment as Style Distribution &
Production. Switch off the interfaces.

I favour the second option, but I am not sure how to switch off the
interfaces. Sales invoices are no problem because we generate them from a
packing system so I can disable that option in S21. We are not using AFI,
and the manual seems to say that BFI cannot be switched off.

As we already have the Finance modules installed in the environment where
we run Style Distribution & Production, I can check to see if there are any
postings being generated, but I am not sure where to start looking.

On the other hand, the first option makes the migration easier. As the
migration over-writes all the data, we will need to save the data for test
companies (using 1/ARU, 1/APU, 1/GLU, 1/CSU) and then restore it again
(using 3/ARU, 3/APU, 3/GLU, 3/CSU).

Any ideas or suggestions will be very welcome!

Best Regards
