A long time in the making, Sage 100 Payroll 2.0 (aka "Payroll 2018") is the next-generation payroll module that has been totally revamped, modernized, and re-imagined to improve performance and user experience. Since Payroll 2.0 represents such a significant change, we wanted to introduce you to a few how-to videos that should help you with a smooth transition from the legacy payroll module in Sage 100.
While using Sage 300 (aka Accpac), you may discover that the 1099 codes or amounts you've recorded for an accounts payable vendor need to be edited or adjusted (especially during year end processing). The following steps show you how to change 1099 codes or amounts in Sage 300.
In Sage 100, you can’t post an out of balance journal entry in the general ledger. Total debit entries must equal the total credit entries. Here are some tips and a video tutorial that will show you how to correct an out-of-balance journal entry before updating the general ledger in Sage 100.
Before you begin anything like upgrading or period and year-end processing in Sage 100 (formerly "MAS 90"), it's important to create a backup of your company data.
It's useful to create an archive company using the Copy Company feature in Sage 100 (formerly "MAS 90"). This provides a readily accessible copy (and backup) of the current year’s data even after you perform period-end or year-end processing in your live company.
Here's how it works.

Technology sure has come a long. But as businesses become more reliant on technology, it's also important to remember that technology isn't always foolproof. Computer viruses, hardware failure, theft, and even natural disasters have the potential to cripple your business if you don't have a recent backup of your Sage 300 (formerly "Accpac") database.
Making backups (and testing those backups) is vital to every company and should be a part of your regular business practices. At a minimum, you should create a backup before an upgrade, before and after processing year end, and before any major system changes - like system integration, or module installation.
Here's how to create - and restore - database backups in your Sage 300 system.
Data entry is inevitable in accounting, but that tedious "heads down" work doesn't have to take up so much time. When entering a large volume of transactions in Sage 100 (formerly "MAS 90"), switching between your keyboard and mouse can slow you down and potentially cause errors.
All maintenance and data entry windows in Sage 100 share the same set of buttons and keystrokes to help you easily navigate through data and perform tasks quickly.
Here's a complete guide to the Sage 100 Keyboard Shortcuts and other "hotkeys" that will save you loads of time when it comes to data and transaction entry.

Sage X3 makes it easy for you to enter and manage batches in your system. In this blog post, we'll show you how to use the batch entry function allowing you to enter multiple journal entries - which can be from different sources or locations - all prior to validation and posting.
