I have received a number of queries recently relating to Time Out errors being experienced during the running of a year end. There have been a couple of known issues with regards to these errors which were actually fixed in Sage 200 2011 SP1.

Below are details with regards to the issues now fixed in Sage 200 2011 SP1:

Known issue 3226 related to SQL timeout errors when running year end. The routine reached about 4% of Stage 2.

Known issue 4179 related to running year end on large data sets. Data sets with a high volume of transactions for a particular period or companies with a large number of accounts, timeout errors could occur when calculating period values.
