Erase Actuals

Warning: Erase Actuals erases numeric data in specified months and accounts and cannot be undone.
Values in system accounts and cells with formulas will not be erased.

To erase actuals data from your system:

  1. If your system has multiple actuals versions, select the actuals version from which you wish to delete data. A version represents a particular planning scenario, such as Budget 2013 or a what-if plan for evaluating effects of an potential acquisition, down sizing, and so on.

  2. Select whether to delete from the GL (short for General Ledger), accounts, custom accounts, or cube accounts (if cube accounts, specify the sheet Sheets group accounts in meaningful ways and are used by planners to enter and calculate future expenses, staffing requirements, capital purchases, and other financial needs of their department. For example, the Expense sheet lists accounts that record monthly expenses, such as airfare or cell phones, and the Personnel sheet lists employees and used to plan for head count, salaries, and benefits. Planners only see the sheets that an administrator has placed on the levels the planner owns, and only sees data for the owned levels or sheets that have been assigned to them. The organization structure admin exposes sheets to planners when setting up the top level.).

  3. Select the months to erase, either an individual month or a range.

  4. If you want to delete cell notes as well as numeric data, check the Include cell notes check box.

  5. Click Erase Actuals.
