MAS 90 / MAS 200 Module Closing Sequence
The order that modules are closed is very important. The period-end and year-end processes performed in one module often write data to another module, so to close the modules out of order may cause damage to your data.
Note: Before you begin any year-end closing procedures, ensure that you have a complete and verified back up of your data.
Modules should be closed in the following order – after you back up your data:
- Bill of Materials1
- Work Order*
*Note: While there is no formal year-end processing procedure in these modules, all transactions should be entered and posted before proceeding with year-end processing in the other distribution modules.
- Bar Code
- Purchase Order
- Sales Order
- Inventory Management
- Electronic Reporting*
*Note: While there is no formal year-end processing procedure in these modules, all transactions should be entered and posted before proceeding with year-end processing in Payroll.
- Accounts Receivable
- Accounts Payable
- Job Cost
- General Ledger
If you are running modules not on this list, for example e-Business Manager, one or more Sage ERP MAS†90 Extended Solutions, or a third-party product, there may be special considerations involved in year-end closing.
