If you use Payroll make sure that each account in Payroll Setup has a GL number entered in your Platinum data. You must have need a different GL number for each of your Liability and Expense account. If you have two Liability GL number's, two Expense GL numbers or a Liability and Expense GL numbers that are the same please correct or change the GL numbers BEFORE converting your data. This must be done even if your Payroll is not interactive with the General Ledger.
Once you have read the above and after completing the Federal Tax, State Tax and Payroll function you can click the Next button.
You will then be asked "What GL do you use for JIB Offset" and "What GL do you use for Revenue Offset", these are usually 76320 and 76330. However, if you use different GL numbers then you will need to change the GL numbers to what you are using.
Next select the Platinum Data directory you would like to make a copy of. To find out what the name of your data directory open up your Platinum programs and select Help then About. You will see on that screen the name of your Data Directory. Make sure you take note of your Data Directory and not your Program Directory name.
