How to use batch changes in Sage 50 Accounts

Sage 50 Accounts


In Sage 50 Accounts, you may want to make the same changes to multiple records. For example, you may want to set the same payment due days on multiple customer records, or assign a group of products to a particular stock category.

The Batch changes option is a great time saving tool that you can use in Sage 50 Accounts to make changes to multiple records at the same time, rather than amending each record one by one.

How do I make a batch change in Sage 50?

1. Take a backup of your data.

2. Open the relevant module, for example Customers, and select the records you want to amend.

  • To select all records listed, click Clear then Swap.
  • To select more than one item you may need to hold down the Ctrl key.

3. Right-click one of the selected records then click Batch changes.

4. On the blank record, amend the required boxes.

5. Boxes which you can’t change aren’t available. If none of the boxes on a tab can be amended, the tab doesn’t appear.

6. Click Save then click Yes.
