This support note applies to:

  • AO Classic General Ledger (AU)
  • AO Classic (NZ)
Article ID: 28966

This error occurs when running reports on an Annual Ledger in Accountants Office on a workstation using Windows Server 2003. A Windows Server 2003 update available from the 14th of September 2006 changed the security profile of the Windows Temp directories.

MYOB is investigating this issue. To fix the error, either:

  • change security settings to allow user access to the Temp directories
  • change your ledger from an Annual Ledger to a Period Ledger.

To change your security settings

See Windows help, or consult your IT technician.
