I need to process for the next Financial year, but the menu options are all greyed out
If a new financial year has just started, the reason for all your menu options being greyed out will most probably be as a result of you trying to process in a period in which processing has not yet been set as allowed. You can tell this by the date on your top toolbar displaying in red.
To allow posting into the next financial year:
in 7.14.6 and later go to File | Change Periods, Set Open Periods.
in 7.13.60 and before check that the “Allow processing for this financial year” is ticked in the Period Setup screen for the next financial year.
