    Just recently started using Sage 200. However before this we were using a
    spreadsheet to log all of our daly sales / receipts and from this work out
    our debtors. The sales / receipts for the month were then transferred on to
    Sage line 50 complete with the debtors balance at another site. During this
    time we wrote off from our spreadsheet debts that we knew we weren't going
    to be paid for but at the time we continued to count these on our debtors
    for the end of the month (although we charge the P&L as a debt write off on
    Sage Line 50)

    The trouble is these old debts were transferred to our new system Sage 200
    but we didn't want these to. How would I go about removing these with out
    effecting the sales?

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

    Given that Sage is a double-entry system, if the 'bad debts' are showing up
    in debtors, where did the other side of the entry go when they were
    introduced. The answe to your problem should then be apparent.
