Sage 200 2013 ON PREMISE

It’s finally arrived after months of anticipation.

Today sees the launch of the ON PREMISE release of Sage 200 2013. This follows on from the online version which was released in July.

An update has been released for Sage 200 Report Designer (Update 1.4.2013.27). This is to resolve the following known issue:

Issue 5454 – PCs running Sage 200 2011 cannot view reports spooled on the machine that has received the Sage 50 Payroll auto-update

Sage 200 users that also have Sage 50 Payroll installed, on their client machine, found problems with Sage 200 reports after installing Payroll Update 4 (v19.02).

This was because the Report Designer is updated to a higher version being run than the Report Designer used by Sage 200-only users. Reports modified or spooled (in Sage 200) by the Sage 50 Payroll users cannot be used by the Sage 200 users.

To overcome this Sage have released a standalone Report Designer update which can be installed on machines running Sage 200 2011 Service Pack 5. This update aligns the Report Designer to the same version as the Payroll users.

NB. This is the same version of Report Designer that comes as standard with Sage 200 2013 On Premise.

This update should be installed to all Sage 200 machines (not just those using Sage Payroll). Please be aware that a re-boot is also required once completed.

There is a compatibility issue with Sage 2013 Online v9.0 and the latest version of Payroll 19.02.157 which has update 4.

When logging on you get the following error box and Sage 200 won’t open:

Sage Payroll and 2013 Online issue

This is being looked into by Sage and they advised it will be fixed in v9.1 which should be released in the next 3-4 weeks.

The only workaround is to use a machine that doesn’t have this Payroll installed

A genious comparison of Technology and the Local pub.

Sage 200 could easily be the local pub itself, being the heart of a business like the local is the heart of a community.

I’m sure we all have a local pub, the kind of place where you know the landlord by his first name, and who is always telling you a few dubious jokes with a cheeky grin.

You often see a few regular faces propping up the bar, reminiscing or just generally gossiping about the antics of their next door neighbour and his new girlfriend over a pint of abbot ale…pub landlord

I recently had a meal and a pint with my Dad at our local pub, and as is generally the case the conversation drifted on to technology which started to make me think. The local pub is an institution in the UK and something that brings people together, it promotes communication…which is exactly what technology does!

You have Facebook, with the local’s equivalent being the notice board showing pictures of…

Slightly late posting this, but please be aware Sage have announced the date for the Sage 200 2013 On premise release has moved out to Tuesday 27th August.

Clearly its better they fix issues before release, but hopefully we get something on the 27th.
