I loaded bank account manger from the disk that came with version 11. Peachtree said this was the latest update of BAM and it would work with V13, but I get a system error message that states:

Error # 58 was generated by PCAWMenu
File already exists.

Anyone know how to fix this?

An error 58 occurs when a file that is running in the background is not closed properly due to some interruption in the program. To avoid this happening again, once you fix it, import only the current generation of files to BAM. If you import payroll, import prior to running post current period.

The files you need to look for are located in the data directory of AP, AR and PR.


Go to Utilities, Maintain Company Information, display information. Find the data file location of the above modules and also the current generation number.

Open a DOS window and change directory to AP's data file location and type the following:
DIR AP??DTL9.Did.$$$ (INSERT YOUR GENERATION NUMBER FOR THE ?? AND YOUR COMPANY ID FOR THE id.)

If the file is present,
type DEL AP??DTL9.Did (again, inserting the same generation number and company id)

Then type: REN AP??DTL9.Did.$$$ AP??DTL9.Did

If there is not a file with $$$ signs, change directory to your AR data directory and type the following:
DIR AR??TRN8.DID.$$$ (USE THE GENERATION NUMBER FOR AR AND THE COMPANY ID)
If the file is present, type DEL AR??TRN8.Did
Then type: REN AR??TRN8.Did.$$$ AR??TRN8.Did

If there is still not a file with $$$ in either of the two directories, change directory to the PR data directory and type the following:
DIR PR??EMP7.Did.$$$ Insert the payroll current generation number and company id)
If present, type DEL PR??EMP7.Did
Then, REN PR??EMP7.DiD.$$$ PR??EMP7.Did

If no files were found for these generations, it may be that the $$$ files are attached to another generation. You can search these folders for files with this name and delete the associated file without the $$$ and then rename the $$$ sign file to the original name as outlined above.
