Sage 100 ERP: 2013 Year End FAQs For General Ledger And Reporting

By January 7, 2014No Comments

Sage-100-ERP-Year-End-300x199Below are some questions that often come up during year end processing in Sage 100 ERP.

Can I print financial statements for the next fiscal year PRIOR to performing year end processing?

YES. In the Fiscal Year field within the applicable report window, simply select the fiscal year to print. Do NOT manually change the fiscal year in General Ledger Options in order to print financial statements for the next fiscal year.

After year end processing, can I delete accounts that will no longer be used in the new fiscal year and still run comparison statements?

Information about prior fiscal years is stored by account number. These account numbers must be retained for as long as you require comparisons. Instead, you can set the status of an account to Inactive to prevent future postings but still retain the account number for comparisons. On the Main Tab in Account Maintenance, select Inactive in the Status field and click Accept.

Can I open a closed fiscal year to make General Ledger postings/adjustments?

YES. If you retained detail history for a prior fiscal year by entering the ‘Years to Retain General Ledger History’ field in GL Options, you can reopen the closed fiscal year and post to it.


  • Select General Ledger Setup menu > GL Options
  • On the Main tab, in the Current Fiscal Year field, select the past fiscal year to reopen
  • In the Current Period field, select the accounting period to post to and click Accept
  • In General Journal Entry or Transaction Journal Entry, enter the transaction to the reopened fiscal year and period and update the journal entry
  • Reprint year end reports when you’re finished
  • Go back to General Ledger Options Main tab and select the current year in the Current Fiscal Year field, and the current period in the Current Period field. Click Accept.

You’ve just re-opened the closed fiscal year, posted a journal entry, and reverted back (in the last step) to the current fiscal period and year. Note: Closed fiscal years can only be reopened in the General Ledger module.
