To do this, please follow these steps:

  1. Open your AutoEntry Desktop Sync App, and click 'Disconnect' next to the company's name.

  2. Attempt to restore the company data on Sage again.

  3. Reconnect the company on the Sync App (same method as disconnecting, but click 'Connect' next to the company's name.)

  4. Once reconnected, please keep the Sync App open whilst your codes are syncing back through to AutoEntry from Sage.
