45-Day Grace Period
Error: "Your Sage 100 subscription has expired. You can continue using the software for 45 days. Please contact Sage before xx/xx/xxxx to renew your subscription"
DURING the grace period, you can still contact Sales or your Sage 100 Partner and renew your subscription if the expiration was unintentional.
AFTER the 45 day grace period, Sage 100 will only offer Read-Only access to data. In other words, you can no longer enter transactions or any other process that writes to the database but you can still view existing data.
