Which Company Am I Posting To?

We have several clients who utilize multiple company codes in Sage 100 ERP to manage their businesses, many times with the same users rolling up the financials across the various companies.  Beginning in version 4.4, Sage made it easy for users to establish multiple companies in Sage 100 ERP and assign an easily identifiable background for each of the different companies.

Color-coding is extremely helpful to ensure entries are made under the correct company.  While in Company Maintenance, enable the Company Specific Background Color checkbox, then select the background colors from the provided color palette.

After making your selection, you can test how your selection will display in a sample text box window.  Test Text Box

And then, you have a distinctive way of knowing you are posting in the correct company code. And for that one client of ours who has close to 100 company codes – let’s see just how many colors are in the spectrum!
