Older version, need to reset from earlier date!

Older version, need to reset from earlier date!

Older version, need to reset from earlier date!

Collective wisdom:
So, I am charged with entering in all the inventory, after freezing items, etc.
When I went to see how far we had to go, and prioritize the big dollar items to reconcile, I accidentally updated the wrong thing.
The Physical Count Variance Register tells you what to find, and since I accidentally updated it, it acts like we lost half of the inventory.
There seems to be no real means of reversing this, nor can we 'back up' to the last date.
Any ideas on correcting this colossal mistake?

RE: Older version, need to reset from earlier date!

Do you backup your data regularly?  I would restore from backup and do it right.

RE: Older version, need to reset from earlier date!

Do a transaction entry adjustment and just adjust it back in on same date.

RE: Older version, need to reset from earlier date!

Won't work.
I didn't update G/L, but it still only gives us a useful backup date of the 12th...too far back.
Updating the variance register is the same as unfreezing items from the inventory point of view.
The backup on the 19th seems to not work, but I still wonder if daily parts usage is holding us up.
Anyway, I'm back to entering everything manually, by adding lines to a blank physical count worksheet.
