2018.3 New MYOB Accountright Version import

Post by Cathy » Fri 14 Sep, 2018 10:42 am

Hi there,

MYOB has pushed out the new version 2018.3 which includes a multi currency option. Will this effect the current import into MYOB.
We may also start using the multi currency in MYOB. We currently use it in our other software. Will we need to wait for those extra fields to be available in Transpost?

Regards,
Cathy

TransPost has always provided for currencies for the old Classic MYOB ODBC version. All the code is in place except that the API for AccountRight provides nowhere to put currency data so we cannot implement it.

Despite the recent changes, the API documentation as published by MYOB still does not provide for currency. When we can identify suitable fields in the API for passing currency data we will hook up the existing mapping fields and make them visible in the AccountRight Live context.

We are looking quite keenly at the available API structures for that opportunity.

Ok so we are safe to upgrade our MYOB to 2018.3 and shouldn't experience any issues with the current import then?

If you want to import data containing currency codes and exchange rates via TransPost you should stick with Classic MYOB and wait until MYOB have added them to the API as inputs. So far they have added the odd output field for currency but no details have been published for API fields enabling importing of transactions in foreign currencies.

When there are fields for importing currency details we will modify TransPost as quickly as possible to take advantage of them. They are all there for Classic MYOB so the update should not take us too long to develop. We will send out a newsletter and post here when that has occurred.
