Sage 100 Contractor 2019 (SQL) Version 22.1sage consulting

Here is a quick list of the release notes for version 22.1.  See Release Notes for more information.

  • You can look up previous bank reconciliations even if you do not save bank reconciliations individually as PDFs when you save the final bank reconciliation.
  • You can now open, view, print, and even reverse previous final reconciliations.
  • We have added a new Sort by Item Amount option to the 1-5 Bank Reconciliation window, and we have added totals by credit card to the 4-7-5 Reconcile Credit Card Statements window.
  • As an administrator, you can set command-level security for many menu options and related buttons, providing a finer degree of control over users’ abilities to view sensitive information, such as wage rates, net pay, and total costs. Where security is available for an option or a corresponding button, highlight the command from the Options menu or the Post menu, press the F7 key, and then use the Security window to control access for different types of users.
  • Field-level security was inadvertently missing from several key text boxes in the 5-2-2 Payroll Records window, so we’ve added field-level security to the summary Gross Pay, Adds, Deducts, Net Pay, and Total Cost fields in the footer of this window.
  • In windows that have a View menu, you can view the fields and commands to which access is restricted in that window.
  • When you click View > Security, the program highlights the fields and commands for which security is turned on. In this View Security mode, you cannot edit any of the fields in the window, although you can still turn security off and on. l
  • You can now sort most grids that you open using a button in a primary window. (The grid then opens in a secondary window.) Select the header for the column you want to sort on, and then click the Sort by option. For example, you can sort open invoices, paid invoices, and subcontractors in the 4-4 Vendors window.
  • You can sort grids by name on columns that have a combined number and name. l The program warns you when you try to post an AP invoice without a subcontract reference or, if you require a subcontract reference, it stops you from posting. This is similar to the existing PO Warning set in the 4-4 Vendors window.
  • You can easily transfer amounts between bank accounts.
  • In the U.S. Edition, you can now set up and report on use taxes paid on payable invoices.
