Breaking News & Updates
Changing accounting systems for an established business is like changing banks. You need to make sure all your new services and accounts are setup and working correctly and then change all your paperwork and systems to make sure the old ones aren’t used any more. Then you’ve got to let everyone who needs to know, know.
It’s easy to say but a fair bit harder to do but more and more companies are making the change from MYOB to Xero. Here’s what we’re building to help
Exporting Accounting Records from MYOB AccountRight
The first step when making a change to something like Xero is to decide when you want to begin official record keeping in the new software. You then export the information into a TXT file (which is usually opened in Microsoft Excel) which you’ll then use to import into the new software program.
Whether you use Excel or not you’ll have the information in a format that Excel can open, read and modify. Learn about the Microsoft Excel short course in databases.
The first problem you’ll come across is what information do you want to export. It’s one thing to say all, it’s another to actually go into the software and choose all that data.
The next problem you’ll have will be match fields between your freshly exported Excel file with your new software.

MYOB & Xero Training Courses
We’ve just created the foundation outline for a new micro course on exporting all your accounting records from MYOB AccountRight. We decided it was a good idea because of the shear number of students who are now enquiring about training packages which include BOTH of these software programs.

Even though MYOB are rapidly updating and improving all their software, Xero seem to have a marketing advantage when business owners think about all the benefits of cloud based accounting software.
Stay tuned for updates about this MYOB & Excel short course and read up about our Additions & Updates Policy to see if you’ll receive it for free when it’s released.
