    Not just AS/400, but any decent accounting program should prevent you from doing that.

    Closing a period means no more transactions.

    You might look for an "unclose" option, but that would be unusual.

    This will depend on the software package you are using. Suggest contacting support for the package.

    This is not a good thing to do and will cause issue if you ever get audited. Most G/L packages prevent this. What are you currently using for a finance package?

    We use DMAS AS400, the oldest; I was able to open closed general ledger and make changes. I close Sales Analysis for the YEAR; all of the accounts have started a new year. This is the worst system I have ever worked on;what is the best system to replace the AS400?

    The AS/400 is a good solid machine. It's usually the software purchased that causes the problems. You get what you pay for. The package we purchased has been so heavily modified, I do not know if the original programmer would recognized it.. But Hey, it was the cheapest.

    I Googled DMAS AS400 and found to hits. One was on the IBM website indicating that the product was out of support in 1993!. The other was w/ a company called I/O International. They indicated that the latest enhancements were in 2012, but it does not appear that the website has been updated since then. Appears that this is an accounting package specialized for the distribution industry. 

    The issue of replacement software is seperate from the hardware issue. There are several software packages for any given hardware system. The question is really which package will serve your companies needs best. While I (and I am sure others in this forum) have preferences for hardware based on reliability, ease of support, etc. 

    A given software package may peform very well for company A, and still be very wrong for company B.

    What do you want the package to do? Just accounting? integrate inventory? Manufacturing? Shipping/Recieiving? etc.  For very large companies to compile the list of requirements can take a couple of years. The more defined the requirements, the better the match, the happier you will be with your selection. (There are books written on this topic).

    If you buy anything pre-packaged chances are it won't fit 100 percent. You can have the developer make the mods for you at a premium cost or plan on having your own staff to make all the necessary modifications to get it to perform to your custom needs.
