Sage 100 Contractor – The Latest Updates You Need

In January, Sage released Update 1 for Sage 100 Contractor version 21.  This release, 21.3.52, fixes the Workers Comp report problem; the wages on some employees were showing as double!  It also has updated State Tax tables; here’s the list.

  • Alabama
  • Colorado
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Michigan
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • New Jersey
  • Rhode Island
  • Vermont

Included in this January release were some Service Invoice profitability reports fixes (11-1 screen), and an ‘Index out of range’ error when running some Timecard reports (5-2-8 screen).

Then, in February, Sage released Update 2, version 21.3.53.  In this update, they’ve fixed a problem with the Sage API that connects some third party software with Sage 100 Contractor. This ‘fix’ was specifically related to the Subcontracts module, the New Subcontract, Remaining, and Change Amounts fields.

So there you have it!  If you’re not on version 21, time to make that happen and you might as well go all the way to the February update, version 21.3.53. If you’re already on version 21 and have the latest State tax release (21.3.52), no need to upgrade again unless you have the issue with the Subcontracts. – CMW
