I think I got the solution for you ...

User Name is Already in Use / Cannot Access YYY because XXX is logged in

Typically, when you get this message you will be asked if you want to remove the user from the request list. If you are asked this question, simply answer Yes and you'll be able to continue.

An alternative solution is to go in the data folder for your sage data (the default folder for versions prior to 14 is c:\program files\sage\accounts\accdata for v14, the folder is c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\sage\accounts\2008\company.000\accdata on XP and c:\programdata\sage\accounts\2008\company.000\accdata. In the data folder, you will find a file called QUEUE.DTA - delete the file and you should be able to get back into Line 50. If you have a multi user version of Line 50, you should only delete this file if you are sure that no-one else is using Line 50.

Do you have the multiple company license?
if so, you should be asked at startup to select a company, even if you have only one company set up.

I am trying to change the financial year end date in Sage Instant Accounts??


You can only do this is Sage 50 but you can get it changed by someone who has Sage 50 with the same version number as your instant. They can back up their data restore your date change the year and then backup and you can restore it on your computer and they can restore their data. NB they must be on exactly the same version.

I want to transfer all sate data from my old laptop to my new PC, I have already installed the hardware on the new PC


Sage has an EXPORT function that you can use to transfer data.

You could also copy the daily files from the storage folder to a USB drive

O the new machine use the IMPORT function to import a backup of the files or use the folder options to get data from the USB drive to set up a new company profile which would use your old data to set up a new copy of SAGE with your exisying information.

The prefered option is IMPORT / EXPORT

Sage 50 has a file called company. that holds the path to the sage Data. From version 2007 onwards this is held in c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\sage\accounts\2010(or whatever version you have)

Hope this helps

Email Remittances - Report Designer Problem


Sage Line 50 Addpurch Utility
In Sage Line 50 V5, you could only produce remittances for the
supplier accounts you had set up in your Sage Line 50 program.
The information that appeared on your remittances was taken
from the supplier ledger.
In newer versions of Sage Line 50 you can produce remittances for suppliers
who do not have a corresponding supplier record. This allows
you to produce free-format cheques for one-off payments. To
enable you to produce free-format cheques, Sage Line 50 no
longer takes the information for remittances from the supplier
ledger. This means that you can produce remittances whether
there is a corresponding supplier record or not.
If you want to include additional information from your
supplier records on your remittances, for example bank sort
codes and account numbers, you should convert the layouts
you require using this utility.
Note: This utility is installed automatically into your
Sage Line 50 program directory when you install Sage
Line 50.
>> To use the Addpurch utility
1. Open a Command Prompt by clicking on to your Windows Start Button
selecting Run, then type the word COMMAND and click on to OK.
From the command prompt (for example, c:\windows\desktop>) type cd\ and
then press ENTER.
2. At the c:\> prompt type cd "Program Files\Sage Accounts\layouts"
and then press ENTER.
The prompt should now read c:\Program Files\Sage\Accounts\layouts
Note: If your Sage Line 50 program is installed in a different
directory replace the above instruction with your own directory
name. The directory path can be found within your program by
clicking on to Help and then About and choosing the System
Information Tab. Your layouts will be held on the same path
as your data directory.
3. Before you can convert your remittance layout you will
need to save this with a new filename. (maximum of 8 characters).
For example, to rename one of your existing layouts from
the c:\Program Files\Sage\Accounts\layouts prompt type:
copy remita4.sly newrema4.sly
and then press ENTER.

Financial Year in Sage


If you are using sage 50 or Sage instant

the financial year can be changed in settings and financial year and click change button. However this is not available in all levels. It sounds if your backup may be out of date.

If there is no backup or restore option, then data recovery service may help, or you need to redefine user access again.
