Sage 200 2016 SP2

Sage 200 2016 SP2 has been out for a while now.

One key issue that impacted users in Sage 200 2016 were the restrictions on Accounts which were placed ‘On Hold’.

There is an issue with entering Memo’s and also it is not possible to allocate transactions.

SP2 fixed the Memo issue. It didn’t fix the allocations but after I did some communicating with Sage support they did a great job and there is actually a Hotfix now available.

It still isn’t possible to import transactions which is something else we have come up against, however my opinion on this is that for Invoices in particular it is probably working by design. I would be interested to know other people’s thoughts on this.

Service pack 3 has now been released for Sage 200 Extra 2015. There are a number fixes included as detailed in Sage 200 Extra 2015 SP3 Issues Fixed .

Sage 200 Manufacturing

Stock Projection Details

Some changes have been made to improve compatibility with Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012, these changes also make a consistent look and feel with other areas of Sage 200 Extra.

As a result of these changes, the following graphs are no longer available:

• Graph tab on Stock Projection Item Details

• Graph tab on Monitor Operation Times

• Histogram tab on Monitor Operation Times

The changes also prevents some workspace options (for example, opening, saving, Copy to Clipboard, print and the tools to change the display of the charts).

MRP – Unable to amend the first recommendation on the system

When the user runs MRP within Manufacturing for the first time, the MRP numbering sequence runs from MRP000000, rather than MRP000001.

As a consequence of this, the first recommendation will not be selectable on the MRP Recommendations form.

To renumber the recommendations you must run the MRP twice on a new dataset, before actioning or maintaining any recommendations.

Subsequently, MRP need only be run once.

Sage 200 Suite Tools

Sage 200 2015 SP3 uses a new version of ManufacturingCSVFileConversion.exe

If you attempt to use the previous tool, the following message appears:

Error launching application. Could not load file or assembly ‘Sage. Manufacturing, Version – 17.0.0.1’.

 

There is a Known issue (5924) which is fixed in Service Pack 1 for Sage 200 2013 R2 where the details of held journals, which were created from Journal Templates, are lost if more than one journal has been held.

NB. there was a hotfix for this originally but this is now rolled up into SP1.

An issue has been found within the Estimating module for Sage 200 2011 SP3.

The issue occurs when a user amends an estimate by adding a new stage or amending an existing stage on the estimate. If this is done, some stages will then have duplications of Stock items that were already added.

A hotfix has now been released.

An issue has been found within both SOP and POP, where by an exception error is given when a user tries to amend an order that contains multiple lines and the user has re-sorted the lines by the ‘Complete’ column.

A hotfix has been released. This is only relevent to Sage 200 SP3.

There is a known issue with Sage 200 2011 SP3 in relation to the consolidation routine.

When the user attempts to consolidate their subsidiary company, they receive an error ‘system.outofmemory exception’

The issue number that this is logged under is 4545. Sage have released a hotfix, this should only be applied to sites with Sage 200 2011 SP3.

A known issue has been fixed for Sage 200 2011 SP3.

Some Manufacturing sites found that when recording a POP Invoice for One-Off Works Orders it causes an exception:

1. Create a One-Off Works Order with components that have unconfirmed costs.

2. Raise a POP order for the components and receive in full.

2. Allocate, issue and complete the Works Order.

3. Fully record the POP invoice.

System generates a “Divide By Zero” exception.

The known issue is 4627.  Sage has released a hotfix that must be applied to  Sage 200 2011 sp3 only.

Be aware of a known issue in Sage 200 2011 SP3 that affects Manufacturing WIP postings. It has be found that incorrect cost is posted to the WIP nominal account, when responding to “Cost of Sale” posting from POP if multiple POP Invoices are recorded:

1. Create a Works Order with components that have unconfirmed costs.

2. Raise a POP order for the components and receive in full on multiple GRNs.

3. Allocate, issue and complete the Works Order.

4. Part record the POP invoice.

5. Fully record rest of POP invoice.

Invalid nominal postings are made for the cost of sales on the 2nd GRN.

This known issue is logged as issue 4591, however a hotfix has been released and should be installed for Manufacturing sites running Sage 200 2011 SP3.

If a user tries to expand MRP tags, where the parent tag is for multiple recommendations, the system can become unresponsive and run out of memory.

From testing Sage have found that this is more apparent when there are large quantities of tagged demand, which have generated thousands of recommendations. Sage 200 does not attempt to cache any data fetched for a particular tag and so if it meets the same tag in the tree hierarchy elsewhere it will attempt to explode it again.

This is known issue 4618. A hotfix has now been released and should only be applied to Manufacturing sites that have Sage 200 2011 SP3.

Sage have found and fixed an issue with Sage 200 Manufacturing, when substituting a traceable component within Works Order Processing (WOP).

The issue is described by Sage as follows:

If you use the “Substitute Traceable Component” feature to amend an already complete Works Order, either to add extra components or to remove components, the issue quantity on the Works Order Allocation/Issue does not get updated to reflect the correct quantity that has been issued. This has the effect of making the Works Order total cost not being correct based on the actual costs incurred.
