With Year-end rapidly approaching, I thought it might be a good time to review some basics regarding period- and year-end closing procedures in Sage ERP MAS 90 and 200. I found this chart as I was cleaning out my files; it provides an outline of the processing order for MAS 90 applications during Year End. The order logic assures an application that writes to another module is processed first.
For Example: Sales Order Processing, which can post to I/M, A/R, and G/L should be fully processed and closed before I/M, A/R, or G/L modules are processed. In addition, some modules can send information, in addition to receiving information from another module. Job Cost can post invoices to A/R, and the A/R module can post invoices to J/C. Therefore, both J/C and A/R should be processed prior to closing either application.
Of course, the first step to take when processing Year End is to make a backup of your company data. Year end processing in MAS 90 can only be “reversed” by restoring from a backup.
