Balance Sheet out of balance

We have a problem with one of our companies using PT 2000 - 7.03.
We ran our Balance Sheet for September 03 and it is out of balance.
The balance sheet was fine in August 03 but now it also is out of balance
(its
our liabilities) this now goes all the way back to January of 2002. The
trial
balance is also off by the same amount and the g/l summary all the way to
January 2002.

Our senior bookkeeper posted a purchase to May of 2002 by mistake (s/b May
2003)
and paid the bill in June 2003. We thought this may be the problem but
every
thing was fine the prior months and went out of balance when she ran her
Balance sheet for September 03 to close out the month. When we checked
August
03 (in balance sheet) - p/l to the August 03 out of balance sheet - p/l the
problem shows up in the dept she coded it to but our accountant doesn't
think
this is the problem.

The only other thing we changed for her system is our Suta info, as we are a
2
state for our payroll and now we are pretax for 401k and medical insurance.
One state allows suta and the other doesn't but I don't see how that would
affect our liabilities etc.

We did contact our accountant as stated above but he had no clue. I have
spent
over 8 hours searching on line and google archives trying to find a
solution -
needless to say we have no support with Peachtree and we won't be upgrading.

My thought is to run the integrity checker and go from there. I am also
going to
take a backup copy which I will do first and run it on my computer to see I
can
find an answer. Our companies are separate entities.

What other suggestions would you have?
I would appreciate any input.

Monica

check

Thanks for the info..
I ran the integrity check and it is fixed.
I compared the out of balance trial balance to the fixed trial balance and
the problem was retained earnings.
We aren't sure why but did read a posting about power surges could be
culprit. Who knows?
Well thanks again

Yes... Great Advice!!!!
Best money I've spent in a long time...My most recent backup was only
three days old, but still too way much work to re-enter all that
information. My data files were corrupt and they got it back!!
(Surprised the hell out of me!!) I can usually fix stuff myself, and
I figured I would be gettin' a "Dear John" email about my corrupted
data files, but I was pleasantly surprised!
