Deleting sales reps


There is only one way to delete sales reps in Fincon Accounting and that is in the Delete Codes/Accounts/Item Numbers window which is explained later in this guide.

Fincon Accounting allows you to delete a sales rep when there is no reference of it on the system in the current financial year, in other words, the sales rep is not present on any transactions within the current financial year.

"Current Financial Year" in this context means period 1 to 24 in the "Current" year.

When you delete sales reps you will be able to recall them if you have not reindexed and packed the data files. The sales rep will remain on the system until you complete the process by reindexing and packing the data files.

This process will completely remove the sales reps from Fincon Accounting and will only work if no other users are querying any database tables.

The easiest way to ensure this is to have all users close their Fincon Accounting applications.
  1. Navigate to System / System Maintenance / Reindex Files.

  3. Click the Accept button.
  4. Wait for the process to finish running. You will know it’s done when there is no progress being displayed at the bottom of the window, and the Accept button is no longer greyed out.
