Sage 100 Module Closing Sequence

The order that Sage 100 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 modules out of order may cause damage to your data.  Note: Before you begin any year-end closing procedure, ensure that you have a complete and verified back up of your data!

Modules should be closed in the following order:

Bill of Materials

Work Order

Bar Code

Purchase Order

Sales Order

Inventory Management



Electronic Reporting

Payroll  (Note: You should make a copy of 2013 payroll before you close!)

Accounts Receivable

Accounts Payable

Job Cost

General Ledger

*If you are running modules not on this list or a 3rd party product, there may be special considerations involved in year-end closing.  Please contact Pam Scott or 502-429-6902 ext 221 and we will be glad to advise you on the best procedure for closing your Sage 100.
