Closing the Books in Sage 100

4 Thing to Note Before Closing the Books in Sage 100

At a high level, here are 4 things to consider in Sage 100 as you begin closing the books on 2018 and start fresh in the new year. 

  1. Backup Your Data

Executing a complete backup of your database is one of the most important things you can do before starting any closing process.  You should also test the backup to ensure it was performed successfully and the data is readable.

If you make a mistake, the only way to “reverse” year end processing is to restore data from a backup.

  1. Follow the Module Closing Order

A year end process in one module often writes data to another related module. Therefore, closing modules in the proper sequence is extremely important in order to avoid unexpected results or damage to your data.

For more detail and guidance, refer to the Module Closing article included in our newsletter.

  1. Follow the Module Closing Checklists

Step-by-step checklists are available for most modules.  These checklists provide guidance on the sequence of detailed tasks and procedures that should be performed within each module.

Detailed checklists for each module can be accessed right from within the Sage 100 Help system.

  1. Get Help When Needed!

Be sure to contact us if you have any questions before, during, or after you start year end processing. Especially if you have customizations or 3rd party add-on products that are integrated with Sage 100, we can help you plan a closing process for your specific system/installation.
