Weekly Sage 100cloud News and Tips


Hello and welcome to another Thursday full of news and information about Sage 100.

So far the feedback on installing Sage 100 2020 is largely positive. I'm tracking these open issues which are expected to be resolved in September with the first product update.
  1. In Purchase Order when performing Receipt of Goods - if Inventory is not installed/integrated - you must change the default receipt date before doing any data entry.
  2. In Sales Order Shipping data entry, you can't change the Ship Date before entering an Order number or it'll pull up lines from all previously entered shipments for the day.
As noted, both of these issues seem to appear only when Inventory is NOT integrated.

What is Wave Picking?

If you use Sage 100 to manage inventory and ship products from your warehouse - have a look at this video which demonstrates how wave picking can speed up your picking and ultimately shipping.

Find and Fix Bad Dates in Your Sage 100 Data Files

As you may know, once your system finds a bad date it may stop processing further and prompt you with a Vendor Code 9 error message.

These bad dates may be tough to locate. Most people try to create a Crystal Report to read the data table and uncover the bad date(s) however even Crystal Reports may stop reading data unless you modify your SOTAMAS90 to allow for NULL Dates.

Sage has a utility which can scan your data files searching for bad dates. It then creates a data file XXX (where XXX is your 3-character Sage 100 company code) XXX_CheckDate.txt in your \MAS90\HOME\Textout\
