In MYOB Accountants Enterprise (AE) Assets, to delete an AE Assets ledger you'll need to run the -deleteast function.

Before you begin, make sure you have taken a backup of the Accounts and Assets ledger from Client File Maintenance. If you are unsure how to do this, Backing up ledgers and creating work files in AE Accounts will guide you through the process.

To perform the -deleteast function
  1. Press and hold the Windows button and press R on your keyboard. The Run window opens.
  2. In the Open field, type X:\MYOB\bin\accounting.exe -deleteast <client code> and click OK.
    Where X:MYOB\bin is the installation path of the program directory and <client code> is the client code of the contact you are deleting the asset register for.

  3. The Delete Solution 6 Assets Ledger window appears with the message "This action will permanently delete the AE Assets Ledger for <Client Name and Code>".

  4. Select the backup acknowlegement option and click Yes. The Assets ledger is deleted.
  5. Click OK. The process is complete.

You can now create new Assets data for your client.
