I am totally confused with regards to the correlation between field prep and unassigned crop. I opted to skip a couple of updates and went from FW ver 10.x to ver 2008.x in Nov of 2007. We almost never know for certain what crop will ultimately get planted on a field the following spring when we begin field work in the fall. This is especially true when we start working a new farm. Field Prep worked wonderfully for us. I've been using Farmworks since 1994 and the use of field prep was second nature. I am currently using ver 2008.12.373 and would like to update to 2009 but I want to close out 2008 and make certain all my current entries are correct before doing so.

I've been trying to clear up field prep issues since I upgraded in Nov 2007 to ver2008 and thought I had them cleared up. Apparently I do not.

There are two issues in particular that I've wrangled with most of this afternoon:

1) Some farming actions made after harvest last year were somehow applied to a "retired" Field Prep enterprise. I'm fairly certain that I left the Crop Enterprise blank when I applied the farming actions to the fields. I know I didn't select Field Prep as an enterprise. I assume need to move them to <unassigned crop>? If so, how?

2)If Field Prep is gone, why does it show up as an option when I allocate expenses as I purchase them? ie If I pay, for example, a bill for plane hire in Payments & Purchases, then use Enterprise Allocation Field Crops - Mine in the Expense and Other Payments box, every field I farm shows up with a Field Prep option in this window. I've been allocating expenses as they occured this way since harvest. Will I now have to unallocate them and reallocate them to the fields later and after the crop enterprise is known?

As I said, I'm confused. :(
Old dog. New tricks. I suppose

Thanks for the help and sorry if I hijacked the thread.
