Sage 100 ERP (MAS 90): How to Create a Receipt of Goods Entry

Question: We own Sage 100 ERP (formerly Sage MAS90), we just added the Purchase Order and Inventory Management Modules. After we issue a Purchase Order and the goods are received, how do we make the Receipt of Goods Entry?

Answer: First, you will need to go to Modules > Purchase Order>Main>Receipt of Goods Entry. You will select a new entry by clicking on the # sign next to the Receipt number. Then you should select or type in the PO number.

Second, if you have received the invoice with the shipment it can be entered into the Invoice number box, if not and you received the invoice at a later date you can then us Receipt of Invoice task at a later date.

Third, select the lines tab, the system will ask if you want to receive the entire order:

Select yes if you have received the entire order, select no if you have received a partial shipment and would like to leave the Purchase order open.

Fourth, we selected yes in the example. Quantities can also be adjusted at this point. If you have Lot or Serial Number inventory items they will show as a yellow ! at the left of the item code and they must distributed using the Lot/Serial Distribution icon that is shaped like a grid.

Fifth, once all distributions are made Accept and run the Daily Receipt Register and Update, this will adjust the Inventory quantities and be available for business use.

As providers of accounting software, implementation and support, we offer a wide range of solutions designed to fit businesses and non-profits of all sizes. Our combination of products and services allow you to better manage your accounting and to make insightful decisions about your company’s future.


This is a success story that embraced persistence, partnership and always working with and looking out for our customers best interest.

We are very involved with the Coachella Valley business community. In 2014, a local CPA named Kelli Cox, was working with CVEP on their financial statements. CVEP had laid off their Controller. Kelli didn’t have time to do many of the accounting tasks they were requiring. She knew we were Abila MIP Fund Accounting™ Certified Consultants and brought us in to meet with Lesa Bodnar, Chief of Staff of CVEP.

Kelli recommended us to take over many of the accounting tasks due to our knowledge and expertise. CVEP also wanted additional training on Abila MIP Fund Accounting™ software for their staff. Mike Renner trained the staff on General Ledger, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable. Laurie Renner went onsite weekly to work on the Abila MIP Fund Accounting™  software, to make accounting entries and at the end of the month reconciled their bank statements. She also worked with Kelli to make sure the financial statements and board reports were ready for the board meetings. Laurie has been working with this client ever since. It’s an ongoing success story for 3 years now.

Some of the comments from the Chief of Staff – Lesa Bodnar are:

The First Computer “Bug”

Did you ever wonder why a problem with a computer is called a bug?  Well, according to Admiral Grace Hopper of the US Navy, it happened on September 9, 1945.  Back then, computers took up an entire room and there were many tubes.  So on that day, a moth flew into the room and into the wires/tubes and shorted the circuits.  In the official log, the moth was actually taped to the page and the computer problem was notated as being “caused by the bug”.

Admiral Hopper was one of the first programmers on the Harvard Mark I computer in 1944.  The term “bug” had been used before in engineering projects, but this is the first recorded computer bug in history.  Just imagine if they had use the word moth when describing the original problem?  Would we be “de-mothing” computer programs today?

WAC Solution Partners- Midwest Office to Host 2nd Annual Food Drive

The Midwest office in conjunction with their suite-mates, Proceed Innovative and Undo Identity Theft is hosting their second annual food drive.

The office (also known as 200 N. Executives) consists of three local small businesses all sharing space and resources.  This group has been working together for over eight years in some capacity and they are all very involved in many community programs such as local chambers of commerce, business networking groups, and Rotary International.

Food Drive 2016

Michael Ericksen, President of WAC Solution Partners- Midwest, in conjunction with his Rotary group, originally put together the School District 54 Food Pantry which has expanded into two locations. The need for helping the local community in this capacity was formed when it was noticed that many students were coming to school hungry.

The 200 N. Executives held this local food drive last year and donated a large car-trunk filled with canned goods and non perishables.  We look forward to donating at least three car-trunks full this year.

The food can be dropped off at the office anytime during business hours 8:30-5 during the drive dates of November 1st through December 18th.

1501 E. Woodfield Road Suite 200N

Schaumburg, IL 60173

For more information on the food pantry check out the School District 54 food pantry site here.

Thank you for your support.

I am Insanely Busy During Sage Summit (2016)

Sage Summit was awesome this year.

Although, as the marketing director, I am insanely busy, I was still able to attend all the keynotes and a good amount of general sessions.

The majority of my sessions I chose gave me insight to implement right away. This is the whole goal of Summit, to share ideas, inspire and educate.  I feel I was the benefactor of all three.

My favorite quote of all the keynotes was from Robert Herjavek of Shark Tank.  ” When the pain from your current situation becomes unbearable, you’ll change” This spoke to me on many levels.  I find the most successful clients we have are always willing to change and improve on what they have.  There was so much inspiration shared.

I look forward to the next bigger and better Sage Summit in 2017 as it grown in attendance and quality each year!

This was my first Sage Summit (2016)

This was my first Sage Summit…

Sage Summit 2016 in Chicago was amazing. The McCormick Place is such a grand venue and the perfect place for holding the event. Sage Summit had so much to offer to partners, customers, and sponsors alike.

The sessions on the different Sage products were so helpful in introducing and explaining the different products; how they, upon their release, will improve the functionality and efficiency of our customers worldwide. This includes updates for Sage 300 and Sage 300c, Sage Live, Sage One and Sage X3, to name a few. I really appreciated that the Sage speakers were open to all feedback, from partners and customers alike, in order to make sure Sage is addressing how they can make the products as user friendly as possible. The Sage team has proven how they are working hard to tackle any obstacles from all possible angles. Other sessions focused on how one can improve their business based on different strategies and skillsets.

The keynote speakers had some incredible advice to share and it was truly inspiring to hear what they had to say. A quote from Daymond John, the founder and CEO of FUBU, that really struck me was, “If you do everything, you’re never going to grow. A great team allows you to grow.” This is very inspirational and the statement holds so much truth because at Sage we are a team working together to benefit each other and our customers. All the keynote speakers were so insightful and had so much wonderful advice and experience to share. It was also great to see all the participating sponsors; to meet them and talk to them one-on-one about how they too can benefit our partners and customers.

It was truly incredible to see and meet people from all over the world coming together for this amazing event and I look forward to what is to come for next year.

Sage Summit 2016… A Great Opportunity

Sage Summit is a great opportunity for partners and customers to meet with the people who are creating our software.  The conference is designed for small businesses even if they are not using Sage Software products.   This year the conference was in Chicago for the first time.

The keynote speakers are awesome!   One that we had this year was Sir Richard Branson.  He told the story of how he started his airline thanks to American Airlines canceling one of his flights.  We also heard from Daymond John and Robert Herjavec from the TV show Shark Tank who shared their stories about how they began their businesses.  I liked Robert’s statement that he never invests in companies that need money.  He invests in successful companies that need money to grow faster.  He also stated that good entrepreneurs always find a way to solve their problems.  If a company isn’t working well, giving them more money will not solve their problems.

The feedback we receive from our clients is that they really learn a lot when they attend and cannot wait to attend next year.   We feel the same.

Sage Summit 2016

As the years go by, Sage Summit is becoming more customer and sales oriented and less technical and reseller oriented.  We have gone from two separate events, to two events next to each other, to a customer event with a token nod to resellers on the first day.  Even that first day is primarily sales oriented.

Not much we can do with the content, but we can adapt to it and leverage it for what it is.  It may not the place to send all of your technical resources to learn, but it is the place to bring your prospects and customers to learn.  If you don’t have a plan going into it with your customers and prospects you are missing an opportunity. As a Partner our primary goal is to act as a guide, to recommend what sessions to attend, and what vendors to see.  Even if we don’t sell anything to our customers and prospects, we at least want them to experience the depth of the product that they are using or looking at, experience the ecosystem that they may need in the future, and assure them that there is a roadmap to the future.

In some cases where the prospect is very engaged, meeting with Sage employees and product managers can reassure their interest.  We had one prospect looking to migrate to a new Sage platform that met with multiple Sage employees and was given multiple personalized demos.

Overall WAC Solution Partners has adapted well to making our customer’s experience great.  We are always striving to do more and keep them engaged, informed, and coming back year after year!

So while it’s unfortunate that the focus is no longer on the reseller, as they say, when you have lemons, you need to learn to make lemonade.

An Unusual Sage Summit for Me This Year

This was an unusual Summit for me this year in Chicago.  As a Sage City VIP, I was asked to do 4 presentations.  What this ultimately meant was, I didn’t get to as many sessions as I normally attend.  I have to say that my presentations were very well attended, even when I had to compete with lunch and the end of the day when poeple were heading to the Killers concert.  They sessions I gave seemed to be very well received as well.  Although very different for me…. all in all, a great experience in Chicago.

On a non Sage Summit note…. the highlight of my trip was attending a Cubs game at Wrigley Field – a major bucket list item now achieved! It was actually against the Chicago White Sox and the Cubbies won!!!!
