A year-end process in one module often writes data to another module. Therefore, the sequence in which you close your Sage 100 (formerly “MAS 90” or “MAS 200”) modules is extremely important in order to avoid the risk of damaging your data. Here's the proper module closing sequence in Sage 100.
Important: Remember to back up your data before starting any module closing procedures. The only way to "reverse" year end processing in Sage 100 is to restore your data from a backup. Refer to our article How to Create a Sage 100 Backup for step-by-step guidance.
- Bill of Materials*
- Work Order Processing*
- Bar Code
- Purchase Order Processing
- Sales Order Processing
- Inventory Management
- Material Requirements Planning (MRP)*
- Electronic Reporting/Magnetic Data*
- Payroll (Quarter-end processing)
- Accounts Receivable
- Accounts Payable
- Job Cost
- Bank Reconciliation
- General Ledger
*Note: While there is no formal closing procedure in the Bill of Materials, Work Order, MRP, and Electronic Reporting modules, all transactions in those modules should be posted before starting any closing procedures in the modules that follow them (i.e. Post transactions in Work Order before closing Purchase Order, Sales Order, and Inventory).
Remember, this is just a general guideline. If you own modules that aren’t listed above or you run any third party add-on products, please contact us to discuss specific closing procedures for your company.
