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

C:\program\SAGE\ACCOUNTS\REPORTS\\*TB.SRT contains an invalid pat

This message usually comes when the target location is not there or is renamed OR the address is wrong. Open My Computer, and go to the address you gave. Look if there is the file named *TB.SRT.

And by the way... the address you gave was "
It is not possible that the address contains 2 slash (\\) repeatedly. Open the file by going to the My Computer OR by opening the software and by locating the file manually from there.

live chat assistance costs $19.99. And $12.99 for one time e-mail premium support.

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.

I cannot save my reports to file to send in an email

Could you save your reports previously to send seperately? If so what format did you save your reports in? Are you receiveing any error message when you try to save your reports? If so what is it?

A quick work around is if you install a free pdf programme - Cutepdf comes to mind, you can then set to print your reports in cutepdf, save as a pdf file and email them... If you need to do this, I can talk you through it in more detail.

Error message with sage instant accounts

If you are unable to logon to Sage you can try deleting the Queue.dta file. All users MUST be logged out of Sage and Sage should not be running. Sage will recreate the queue.dta file when it is restarted. The Queue.dta file can be found in the ACCDATA folder for the Sage Company Data that is experiencing the problem.
Note that the "Username already in use" message from Sage can occur if Sage wasn't shut down tidily for that users session. If you are sure that the user is not actually logged in it's OK to allow Sage to clear the session and log in.
