Sorry that was a typo, you set the VAT in the file to be zero.
Do you use Vat Cash Accounting Scheme?
If the OP has come from Sage Line 100 then is unlikely as Line 100 did not support VAT Cash Accounting.
well you learn something every day.!
Only ever came across Sage Line 100 once in the dim and distant past so never rally bothered to learn it.
People occasionally asked but we never had it work with VAT Cash Accounting on the basis that the size of company likely to use 100 was unlikely to be the scheme.
What is the old version of Sage Line 100? I have just finished fixing an issue with a DOS customer who had v5.40b and an apparent PL crash which in fact was a problem handling dates. PM me if interested.
The OP said earlier in the thread that he has already made the move from 100 to Sage 50...
Yes - sorry - I had missed that post in the thread. It would have been also relevant to NealB that newer software would satisfy electronic VAT submissions (which an old Line100 would not), but Line100 does provide foreign currency revaluations and (cos its an old version) it's likely that he had purchased it outright and thus would not cost him anything in annual license fees.
Thanks @HelpDeskManager but yes, I have moved us to Sage 50. It was about time we got into the 21st century. You're right, it was purchased outright many years ago so was not costing us anything in licence fees. Oh well.
Maybe a spreadsheet? But i am biased.
I think you'll find that Xero has it all - I've been using it while working with my largest client, who gives me a link to log-in and do all I need. It's by far the best system I've used and really easy to work with
And if you read the thread, you'll find that the OP said earlier that he has already made the move from 100 to Sage 50...
People used spreadsheets for ages until these cloud-based nonsense schemes came along.
Sage 200 Professional would be the natural upgrade path as this is the evolved successor to Line 100. A qualified Sage Business Partner can work with you to migrate your existing data.
There are critical issues appearing within Line 100 this month, with arithmetic overflow errors preventing processesing for most customers still using Line 100
The OP said, back on 2nd March, that they had made the move from 100 to Sage 50...
The date issue with 100 will kill it dead now and it is a bit of a problem for anyone still using 100 as it is a show stopper that has come along pretty much without warning. Sage did say last week that were looking to do a fix but then said on Monday that they weren't.
I left Sage 17 years ago and, even then, I was one of only a handful of people there that knew the Retrieve language that 100 is written in, I suspect that they wouldn't have the people available to attempt a fix these days.
Dependent on which specific error you have encountered, there are work-arounds that could keep you going in the short term. Post screen-shots of errors to get free initial advice from a retired 75-year-old Sage consultant, trained by Sky Software!
The OP no longer uses Line 100, in this very thread he said back on March 2nd that he'd made the move to Sage 50. In fact this was mentioned back in July when you posted in this very thread...
I only got notified of a reply on this thread today, so there's still people watching it and the work-arounds still exist. I've resolved one personally, and set another reseller along the short-term paths to keep accounts up-to-date while they are choosing and moving to the next step.
That's because someone posted today and brought it back from the dead (with a link to their own website which I see was removed by a Moderator)
I see that there is a suggestion today that Sage are looking at releasing the source code for Sage 100 to business partners to come up with their own solutions to the current show stopping issues with dates.
