This Extended Solution to the standard MAS 90 MAS 200 General Ledger module adds the ability to specify a Secondary Company Code for G/L Detail Posting. During the update of any transaction to the GL Detail Posting file, the G/L transaction detail data of the originating company will post in its entirety to the G/L Daily Posting file of the specified Secondary Company Code.


Before installing any Extended 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.

Extended Solutions Control Center

Installing any Extended Solution will add an Extended 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
  • Extended 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 Extended Solution.


Upon completion of software installation, you will need to access Extended Solutions Setup from the General Ledger Setup menu. Select this part number, and the Setup screen for this Extended Solution will appear (Figure 1). Check the ‘Enable Extended Solution’ box to activate this Extended Solution.

Answer the following prompt:

SECONDARY COMPANY CODE: Enter the desired Company Code.
INCLUDE ALL MODULES: Check this box to post duplicate G/L postings to secondary company for other modules as well as General Ledger.

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


All postings to the G/L Detail Posting file in the originating company will post in its entirety to the G/L Daily Posting file of the specified Secondary Company Code. The Daily Transaction Register must be printed and updated for the secondary company where it will correctly update the proper period.

Because the Posting Date within the file is used to determine the GL period the data is posted to, this Extended Solution will properly support two companies operating on different fiscal years.

It is assumed that the chart of accounts in both companies is identical. If a GL account does not exist in the secondary company, that posting will not be written to the secondary company.

The same Batch Number used for the G/L Detail Posting will be used when posting to the secondary company’s G/L Daily Posting file. If there is a current batch on file with the same Batch Number, the data will be merged in to the existing batch.

Upgrades and Compatibility

The installation CD is labeled with the version of the MAS 90 MAS 200 module for which this Extended Solution was prepared. This Extended Solution will check its compatibility with the appropriate MAS 90 MAS 200 modules and will be disabled if an incompatibility is found. If you upgrade your MAS 90 MAS 200 modules, this Extended Solution must be upgraded as well. Your MAS 90 MAS 200 dealer can supply this upgrade.
