Erase Actuals

Explains how to permanently erase actuals from general ledger accounts, custom accounts, or cube accounts.

Erasing actuals deletes numeric data from specified months and accounts and cannot be undone. Values in system accounts and cells with formulas cannot be erased.

You can erase actuals to delete specific sets of data from actuals versions. Erase actuals to:

  • Clear account data to make adjustments for a new import.
  • Erase data in a period and start again with your most up-to-date actuals data.
  • Correct an import that loaded into an incorrect location.
  • Perform amount reclasses.
