Rebuild Your Agrimaster File

This feature allows the program to self-diagnose and resolve many errors and issues that may accumulate over time on your file. 

We recommend you rebuild your file periodically, if not on a monthly basis, at least prior to submitting your BAS to ensure data integrity. 

When you rebuild your file, you will see: 

  • An Auto-Backup is performed as a safeguard
  • All data including transactions, invoices and worksheets is checked
  • Required repairs are reported for you to fix or correct
  • The file is compacted. 

The feature reports all items requiring your attention plus any that it auto-corrects. A file rebuild will detect most errors. It is extremely important that you address these errors. Errors in a closed period must be fixed via Repair Past.

  1.  Start at the Home Page
