You've come to the right place. I can share some insights about the error you're getting when pulling up your previous year's General Ledger report.
You'll normally get this alert when a report exceeds the size limits applied to reports generated within the program. The best way to work around this is to pull up your data periodically then export them to Excel.

Set the date for the report period then select Run Report.
Tap the Export icon, then choose Export to Excel.
