Sage 100 ERP Advanced and Premium Smart Update now updates the client workstation automatically. This replaces the need to run WKsUpdate.exe after installing a product update. Users running Sage 100 ERP Standard over a network will still need to run WKsUpdate Standard.exe on each workstation. This program is located in the ..\mas90\wksetup directory on the Sage 100 ERP Standard Server. 

A 64-bit ODBC Driver Installer for Sage 100 ERP 2013 can be found in the ..\mas90\wksetup directory on the Sage 100 ERP 2013 Server. Run the SageODBC64Installer.exe from each Sage 100 ERP Workstation where 64 bit access is desired.

All Sage 100 ERP 2013 Product Updates will require the installation to be from the Sage 100 ERP Server. Significant enhancements have been introduced in Sage 100 ERP 2013 and its Updates. These include: Smart Update, Workstation Synchronization and Sage Auto Update. Part of these enhancements requires the Product Update to make changes to the local registry, necessitating a server side installation. This Product Update can be installed from the Sage 100 ERP 2013 Server either physically at the console or by connecting to it through Remote Desktop.

Before installing the product update, please note the following:

  • We highly recommend that you back up your system before installing any updates or version upgrades. Otherwise, data may be lost if the update fails.
  • If any customizations have been made to your Sage product, contact your Sage business partner or Master Developer before installing any update.
  • Install this Product Update from the same computer that was used to install the original Sage product to the application server.
  • This Product Update includes fixes from all previous product updates.

Print Your Own Check

Written by Todd Martin on .

Ever look at how much you are paying for the boxes of check stock?

We find that a lot of customers have multiple boxes of check stock for each bank account they print checks for in Sage ERP MAS 90 and Sage ERP MAS 200. Usually there are long lead times to get pre printed check stock and the cost can be very expensive compared to plain check stock. An average customer may pay $84.00 for 250 checks pre-printed in a single color. For the same price of 250 pre-printed checks, that same customer can get 1000 blank checks. How can you do this at your company?

It is easy to setup printing in Sage MAS 90 and 200 for blank check stock. Just a few things are needed:

  1. A printer that has the ability to purchase Micr Toner
  2. Micr Toner
  3. Micr Font from ADOBE
  4. Blank Check Stock

*Links are for your reference. MBA does not endorse any of the providers linked. ADOBE MICR font is the preferred font by SAGE.

Written by Todd Martin on .

There is an issue effecting Sage MAS 90 and 200 Manufacturing Customers on version 4.4 using Bill of Materials and Work Order with Bill of Materials.

The issue is related to the quantity per bill on component items on a Bill of Material rounding to whole integers for non-integer Unit of Measure items. Customers experiencing this issue should contact Sage Customer Support.
