Copy an Existing Set of Books

Parent Previous Next

TurboCASH can create an exact copy of an existing Set of Books and all the data contained in that Set of Books. The system will automatically copy all the data files of the selected Set of Books into a new Set of Books specified in any directory on your computer.

This new Set of Books can be accessed within the TurboCASH program, even if it is not created in the TurboCASH directory. TurboCASH allows you to keep your Set of Books in any mapped directory, i.e. on a local or network drive.

To Create a Copy of a Set of Books:

1.Click on the File → Create Set of Books menu.

F10

The Creation Wizard screen is displayed:

2.TurboCASH automatically defaults to the option “Let TurboCASH help you to create a Set of Books?”, as this is the recommended option for most users. Select the Copy an existing Set of Books? option.

3.Click on the Next button. The following screen of the Creation Wizard is displayed:

4.Select any of the available Set of Books on your system. If you do not find the Set of Books on the list, you may click on the Browse button to Browse for a Set of Books from the Pick a Directory screen.

5.Click on the Next button. The following screen of the Creation Wizard is displayed:

6.Enter the name for your new Set of Books.

The name must not already exist and may not be longer than 15 characters. This name will help you to identify your Set of Books on your system and you will need to select this name, whenever you need to open the Set of Books or perform some other functions on the Set of Books.

The Directory in which you create the Set of Books is displayed underneath the Location Browse button. It will usually be the default directory in which TurboCASH is installed (TCASH4) or directory other than TCASH4, which you have specified when you installed TurboCASH. If you wish to create your Set of Books in any other directory or location on your system, you may click on the Browse button to select any Folder or Drive on the Pick a Directory screen.

9.Click on the OK button. The new Set of Books, which is a copy of another Set of Books, is automatically opened and ready to work in.

You have created a copy of an existing Set of Books, which already has transactions and balances, you may need to clear / reset the transactions and balances in the Set of Books. (See Tools → Global Processes → Clear / Reset menu). All the master files (accounts, etc.) will be available and you may then enter your own transactions and balances in the new Set of Books.

This is similar to the File → Save As menu, where you may save an exact copy of an existing Set of Books with a new name.

You may also copy all the settings and data of an existing Set of Books into a new Set of Books using the Tools → Global Processes → Copy from a Set of Books menu.
