For those of you who liked the convenience of quickly  retrieving a document you recently worked on in Windows XP, you can add it back  to your Start Menu in Windows 7.

Here’s how:

Use Recent Items. To find a file you just worked on, use Recent Items
(called My Recent Documents in Windows XP) in the Start menu. In previous versions of the Windows operating system,    Recent Items showed a list of your recently used files on the right side of the   Start menu. You could open a file from this list by clicking it. In
Windows 7, Recent Items no longer appears on the Start menu by default,
but you can add it. To add Recent Items to the Start menu:

  • Right-click the taskbar, and then click Properties
    to open the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog box.
  • Click the Start Menu tab. Under Privacy,
    select the Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the
    taskbar
    check box.
  • Click Customize. In the Customize Start Menu
    dialog box, scroll through the list of options to find the Recent Items
    check box, select it, click OK, and then click OK again.

Thanks to Giselle for this tip

This error is related to the “DEP” on the WIN 2008 server and you need to disable the DEP from checking the Launcher32.exe file.

You might ask what DEP is?   Well  Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is a security feature that can help prevent damage to your computer from viruses and other security threats. Harmful programs can try to attack Windows by attempting to run (also known as execute) code from your computer’s memory reserved for Windows and other authorized programs. These types of attacks can harm your programs and files.DEP can help protect your computer by monitoring your programs to make sure that they use computer memory safely. If DEP notices a program on your computer using memory incorrectly, it closes the program and notifies you

Turns out that  MAS90 or 200 are not compatible with DEP on Version 4.30 and it must be disabled.  Otherwise you will receive the force close  errors and Exception error like the one below.

==============
Exception EAccessViolation in Module RpcRtRemote.dll at
00001479
Access violation at Address 74D31479 in module
‘RpcRTRemote.dll’.  Write of address 74D31479

=======================================

So the best way to resolve it is by disabling the  DEP when launching the MAS90/200

Here is  how you disable it.

I must give  kudos  to Nathan Shaw  for the solution.

 MAS 90/ MAS 200 White Paper 

 DE6 / DE9 / DE9c / California Quarterly Unemployment Filing

Background 

 The following DSD White Paper explains the 2011 changes to filing of California EDD Quarterly Unemployment, and how it relates to DSD’s MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting. 

 The following are presented in this White Paper: 

  • What are DE6, DE9 and DE9C filings?
  • How does DSD’s MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting fulfill these filings in MAS90 | MAS 200?
  • What format is the MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting in?
  • How do I setup an online account with the EDD?
  • How do I generate the upload file using DSD’s MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting?
  • How do I upload the file to the EDD website?
  • How do I contact the EDD for assistance?

  

What are DE6, DE9 and DE9C filings?
DE6: The California DE6 Form, Quarterly Wage and Withholding Report, is a required report to be filed by California employers. Business owners report individual employee’s wages and personal income tax (PIT) withholdings. This form is used for filing for years 2010 and prior. To view a copy of this form, select this link: http://www.edd.ca.gov/pdf_pub_ctr/de6.pdf 

When filling out this form, you submit Company and Employee information on one form. 

If you have 250 employees or more, you may not use this form, but must instead file electronically. 

DE9 and DE9C: Starting in 2011, the DE9 and DE9C forms replace the DE6 form. Basically, they broke up the DE6 form into 2 forms: The DE9 is the Company information, and the DE9C is the Employee information. 

To view copies of these forms, select the following links: 

http://www.edd.ca.gov/pdf_pub_ctr/de9.pdf

http://www.edd.ca.gov/pdf_pub_ctr/de9c.pdf 

As with the DE6 form: If you have 250 employees or more, you may not use this form, but must instead file electronically. 

How does DSD’s MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting fulfill these filings when using MAS 90 |MAS 200? 

As mentioned, if you have more than 250 employees, you may not use the DE6 or DE9/DE9C forms for filing. Conversely, you may file electronically instead of using these forms, regardless of how many employees you have. 

DSD’s MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting is a MAS 90/200 enhancement that generates the file that can be sent to the EDD electronically. It can be purchased through your Sage Reseller. If you are a Sage Reseller, you may contact DSD directly to purchase at (858) 550-5900. 

What format is the MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting in? 

As of 2011, the California EDD allows for three (4) formats for Electronic filing: 

• Comma-Delimited file (CSV)
• MMREF format
• ICESA format
• XML format (added in year 2011) 

DSD’s  MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting is in the ICESA format. 

According to the California EDD, all 4 formats will be allowed for the next few years. At some point, the MMREF and ICESA formats will be retired, and you will be required to submit in XML format. DSD is currently researching this format, and the MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting will be changed to this format in the next 18 months, before it is required by the EDD. 

When uploading the electronic file, the EDD allows for the CSV and XML files to be uploaded as-is. For the ICESA and MMREF formats, the file must be zipped into a .zip file before uploading. 

How do I setup an online account with the EDD? 

Starting March 1, 2011, employers that submit Quarterly Unemployment Reporting electronically are required to enroll in e-Services for Business. To start this process, select the following link: 

https://eddservices.edd.ca.gov/index.html 

1. Select the e-Services for Business Login link
2. Select the Enroll for a username and password link
3. Enter the information on the e-Services for Business enrollment.
4. Continue through the enrollment process. Once you obtain a User Name and Password, you will then have the ability to upload your electronic file. 

IMPORTANT: DSD recommends that you setup your EDD account IMMEDIATELY, as it may take a week or more to obtain your User Name and Password, 

How do I generate the upload file using DSD’s MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting? 

The latest version of the User Manual for DSD’s MRCA California Quarterly Unemployment Reporting can be obtained by selecting the following link: 

http://www.dsdinc.com/enh/downloads/MRCA440.PDF 

Please review this User Manual, as it explains how the UIWAGE file is created. Once you create your UIWAGE file, you can then zip the UIWAGE into a .zip file, and use the .zip file to upload. 

To create a .zip file, typically, you can right-click on the UIWAGE file, and select “Send to” and then “Compressed (Zipped) Folder”. This will create a UIWAGE.ZIP in the same directory as UIWAGE. Again, the UIWAGE.ZIP is the file that you upload. 

How do I upload the file to the EDD website? 

1. Go to https://eddservices.edd.ca.gov/index.html
2. Select the eServices for Business Login link
3. After you login, a new screen will be displayed that has two sections. On the top section, it displays My Summary and on the bottom section, it displays My Accounts.
4. On the right side of the screen is the navigation “I Want to…” with some selections
5. IMPORTANT: Do NOT select an account from My Accounts, as it will display different ”I Want To” selections.
6. From the “I want to…” selection, select Attach a Return File
7. A new screen will be displayed that allows for you to enter information for the upload.
8. At the top of this screen, it will ask you for the Attachment Type.
9. Select DE9, ICESA, ZIP
10. Select the Browse Button to select the UIWAGE.ZIP that you generated from DSD’s MRCA enhancement.
11. Go to the Return File Upload section and complete the information on the screen. 

On the following page, Appendix A, there is a screenshot of this Upload screen. 

How do I contact the EDD for assistance? 

There are many phone numbers on the EDD website that you can call, but the one that I used that got me directly to the proper person is: (800) 796-3524

Version 4.40 and later:

The Average Inventory YTD is calculated based on the Year and Period/Month selected. The data used in the calculation is stored in the IM_PeriodPostingHistory.m4t file.

The first step is to calculate the Ending Balance for each period. For example: if period 3 was selected you would have the following calculation:

  • BeginningBalQty (Per1) + PeriodChangeQty (Per1) = EndingBalPer1
  • BeginningBalQty (Per1) + PeriodChangeQty (Per1) + PeriodChangeQty (Per2) = EndingBalPer2
  • BeginningBalQty (Per1) + PeriodChangeQty (Per1) + PeriodChangeQty (Per2) + PeriodChangeQty (Per3) = EndingBalPer3

Then, add these Ending Balances together then divide by the number of periods.

(EndingBalPer1 + EndingBalPer2 + EndingBalPer3)  / 3

Here is what those formulas look like with data:

  • Period 1:  0 + 0 = 0
  • Period 2:  0 + 0 + 0 = 0
  • Period 3:  0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 0
  • Period 4:  0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 33 = 33
  • Period 5:  0 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 33 + 2642 = 2675
  • Average Inventory Quantity: YTD (0+0+0+33+2675) / 5 = 541.60

Version 3.71 to 4.30

Note: Inventory is perpetual; therefore the quantity on hand may include future transactions.

The Average Inventory is calculated at period end by dividing the running total of the quantity on hand plus the current quantity on hand by the number of periods.

Formula: (A + B) / C = D

  • A = The running total of the quantity on hand
    The quantity on hand for the prior period is added to the accumulated quantities on hand for all the prior periods for the year. The current period is not included.
  • B = The quantity on hand for the period just closed
  • C = The period last closed (in other words, for period 5, C = 5)
  • D = Average inventory

Example:

  1. Inventory is in period 1, and a new item is created. A receipt for 50 of the items is processed.  Then I/M period end is performed. When period end was performed, the quantity on hand was 50. The calculation for Average Inventory is: (0+50)/1=50
    Note: A=0 (Prior total); B = 50 (0 + 50); C = 1; D = 50.
  2. In period 2, another receipt for 75 of the items is processed. Then I/M period 2 is closed. At the time of period end, the item’s quantity on hand is 125. The calculation forAverage Inventory is: (50 + 125) / 2 = 87.5
    Note: A = 50 (0+50); B = 125 (50+75); C = 2; D = 87.5
  3. During period 3, another receipt for 100 of the items is processed, and then period 3 is closed. The current quantity on hand is 225. The calculation for Average Inventory is:  (175 + 225) / 3 = 133.3
    Note: A = 175 (0+50+125); B = 225 (125+100); C = 3; D = 133.3
  4. In period 4, a sales transaction for 150 of the items is processed, and then period 4 is closed. The current quantity on hand is 75. The calculation for Average Inventory is: (400 + 75) / 4  = 118.7
    Note: A = 400 (0+50+125+225); B = 75 (225-150); C =  4; D = 118.7
  5. In period 5, a receipt for 50 of the items is processed, and then period 5 is closed. The current quantity on hand is 125. The calculation for Average Inventory is: (475 + 125) / 5  = 120
    Note: A = 475 (0+50+125+225+75); B = 125 (75+50); C = 5; D = 120

Notes: The Average Inventory is stored in the IM2 file in field 28 (Avg on hand Qty), which is calculated at period end. Each time period end is processed, this field is updated in the following way:
(Avg on Hand Qty in IM2 * Previous Period) + (Current Qty on Hand ) / Current Period.
For step 5 (before running Period End for this period), the Avg Qty on Hand in IM2 was 118.7 (as determined at the end of step 4). When running Period End for period 5, the calculation is as follows:
(118.7 (Avg On Hand Qty) * 4 (Previous Period)) + (125 (Current Qty on Hand)) / 5 (Current Period) =
(474.8 + 125) / 5 = 119.96 (which is rounded to 120)

For those of you  who are  or  have clients who are printing the Quarterly 941  form after installing the 2011 tax tables, make sure you reload the 2010 tax tables or manually change the FICA  Employee rate to 6.2%  from 4.2%   (see image below) when running the 4th Quarter 941.  The 941 uses the rates in the FED tax table to calculate the taxes on the form.  If you don’t then you will end up with the difference in the fractions of cents field .   Important note: Don’t forget to change it back to 4.2 when finished printing . #941 #fractions #error

Have you ever wondered about how to automate the process of entering Accounts Receivable invoices into Sage MAS 90 ERP? How about uploading Sales Order data while you sleep at night, ready to process by the time you arrive in the morning?

With the Sage MAS 90 Visual Integrator (VI) module, users can automate the import of Accounts Receivable, Sales Order, or other types of data, by running a VI job from the command line. A Visual Integrator job or any other Sage MAS 90 program can run independent of Sage MAS 90, with a Windows task, a batch file, or similar method. This allows a user to run the job after business hours, or several times a day, without anyone having to log in to Sage MAS 90.

Please review the details below for examples and notes regarding the command line structure:

Note this is for Version 4.xx

The following information must be included in the command line:

..\MAS90\Home\Pvxwin32.exe ..\launcher\sota.Ini ..\SOA\Startup.M4P -ARG DIRECT (UI State) (User Logon) (Password) (CompanyCode) (Program Name) (Program Argument)

Example:

..\MAS90\Home\Pvxwin32.exe ..\Launcher\Sota.Ini ..\SOA\Startup.M4P -ARG DIRECT UION myuser mypassword ABC VIWI00 AUTO

Notes:

  • If an argument has no value (for example: if the User Logon has no password), use quotation marks (“”) to hold the arguments in place.
  • The User Logon above refers to the Sage MAS 90 or Sage MAS 200 ERP user logon setup in User Maintenance (not the User Code field in User Maintenance).
  • UIState—Set this argument to either UION or UIOFF. This setting specifies if a User Interface exists (for example: a user could receive notification of errors in a message box.)
  • Set the Program Argument to Auto or Manual. The Manual option forces the import job interface to launch, and requires the user to click Accept. Use the Manual option to test your procedure, then use the Auto option once you have verified that the job launches correctly in the Manual option.
  • For batch file command lines, use this example as a model:

  • Any program run with a command line on version 4.0 must exist as a Task within the Sage MAS 90 or 200 Role-based security system. You must add Visual Integrator “legacy” jobs (jobs not using a 4.0 Table as the Primary Table) to the Jobs Menu before running the job with a command line. Jobs using a 4.0 Table as the Primary Table are automatically added to the Jobs Menu (for example General Ledger jobs).
  • After you add the task to the system tasks files, use Role Maintenance to grant access to the new menu for the Visual Integrator Jobs menu. The user logon specified on the command line above must belong to a role that has access to this new task or menu item.

Sage MAS 200:

  • For Sage MAS 200,  the path to the Sage MAS 90 directory used in the shortcut properties corresponds to the Sage MAS 90 directory of the Sage MAS 200 Server Installation, not the Sage MAS 90 directory on the workstation. In the VI job, enter the path to the Import File/Export File as it appears from the WORKSTATION, and uncheck the ‘On Host’ option.
