You can copy the files from any other similar company you have on the hard disk. Change the Company Name in the new company profile (PARM.DBF) file. You will be given the opportunity to delete any accounts you so not need in the new Master Account (MSTR.DBF) file, this copy will have Zero balances forwards. Remember to reset the NEXTNO field in the Source (SOURCE.DBF) file.

Now you will need to create a batch file in the new folder, so you can access the new Company.

Please check the Sr Accountant - Installation instructions on how to create a batch file.
