From BlythecoDev Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



This Custom Solution to the Payroll module changes the order of events when accruing benefits in data entry so that any vacation and, optionally, sick time used is subtracted prior to accrual taking place. Also, when reversing a check, it will subtract the actual vacation/sick hours accrued from the original check.

You must have P/R Option ‘Retain Perpetual Payroll History’ checked in order for this Custom Solution to enable.


Before installing any Custom Solution, please verify that the version level referenced on your installation file is the same version level as your Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) installation. (For more information please call (800) 425-9843). It is recommended to have a complete and tested backup prior to installing any application on your Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) platform.

Custom Solutions Control Center

Installing any Custom Solution will add an Custom Solutions Control Center to the Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200) Library Master Utilities menu. When you open the Control Center, the following options will be available:

  • Merge Installation Files
  • Custom Solutions Setup options

Custom Office

If you customize your Sage 100 (MAS 90 MAS 200), then you must run the Update Utility every time you install this Custom Solution.


Upon completion of software installation, you will need to access the Payroll Setup menu option screen. After the standard MAS 90 MAS 200 option screens have been displayed, a Setup screen for this Custom Solution will appear. Check the ‘Enable Custom Solution’ box to activate this Custom Solution (Figure 1).

Answer the following prompt:

INCLUDE SICK HOURS: Check this box to also modify the sick time benefit accrual calculation performed during payroll tax calculation.

You should visit this Setup screen after each upgrade or reinstallation of this Custom Solution.


This Custom Solution adds the vacation hours taken in the payroll data entry files to the ‘Vacation Hours Used’ for each employee in the vacation benefit accrual calculation which takes place during payroll tax calculation.

If ‘Include Sick Hours’ is checked, it also adds the sick hours taken in the payroll data entry files to the ‘Sick Hours Used’ for each employee in the sick benefit accrual calculation which takes place during payroll tax calculation.

This is meaningful when an employee’s available vacation/sick time is at the annual limit, they are eligible to accrue vacation/sick time on the pay entry if they weren’t at the annual limit and they have used vacation/sick time on this check which will now take them below their annual limit.

When reversing a check, this Custom Solution will subtract the actual vacation/sick hours accrued on the original check. The negative amount will show up on the benefits register per check and not by earnings code.

What’s New

• Added the option to include sick hours.
