Note : Before you proceed with the following instructions, back up the database. If your organization integrates multiple Blackbaud products, refer to the Additional Requirements section of the backup article.
  1. In Administration, click Purge fiscal years
  2. In the Purge all fiscal years through field, select the closed or summarized fiscal years to purge
    Note: Fiscal years must be closed consecutively.
  3. Click Purge Now
  4. Click Yes to continue the purging process. Once purging is complete, a confirmation message appears.
  5. Click OK to return to the Administration page.
Note : Summarizing your fiscal years prior to purging will be required if you'd like the Journal Entry batches from that year to be completely removed.  If the year is not summarized prior to purging, the batch numbers will still be visible in General Ledger>> Journal Entry as empty batches with no transactions.
