Hi guys

My program includes a simple query on Sage 50 via ODBC, something I've programmed hundreds of times before. The Sage data tables are on a network drive. On this particular client's PC (Windows 7, 64 bit), the query ran perfectly every time when run manually, but threw the following errors when scheduled:

ERROR [08001] Cannot find all files in data path
ERROR [01000] The driver returned invalid (or failed to return) SQL_DRIVER_ODBC_VER: 23.1
ERROR [IM006] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed
ERROR [01000] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The driver doesn't support the version of ODBC behavior that the application requested (see SQLSetEnvAttr).

I checked all the DSNs, drivers and registry and everything seemed OK. I did a search and the only relevant post was one here by RogerMoquin:

Problem with ODBC connection when run from a scheduled task
      
His solution was to insert a two minute delay, though I think his issue was with login.  In my case the program runs long after login. Using his idea, however, I found one solution was to set the program to try to connect, then each time an error exception is raised, it waits two minutes. After 3 tries it consistently connects. (Please note that I changed to a DSN-less connection string, but it still uses the 3 tries).

What are the tax implications for being paid on a 1099 (All Inclusive) basis?

Does this mean that I as the employee will have to pay both my share as well as the employer's share of the social security tax?

Are there any other additional or higher taxes that have to be paid by me while being paid on a 1099 basis as opposed to a W2 basis?

I have recently published Sage50 on a Windows 2012 R2 and I'm running on an untypical issue, apparently Sage50  calls a dependency called sagemrg.exe which gives me the 1st picture attached below, this message comes up on the very first attempt to connect to the remote app then the screen closes by itself and then when I try to invoke the app again I get to the main Sage50 screen just normally as picture 2 shows attached. Any ideas on how to solve this?

Hello EE,

I am reviewing my first SOW with a vendor who is looking to help integrate their application with a new system we are putting in.
It seems like a lot of generalizations:
1. "organize workshop"
2. "define strategy"
and a lot more, but I am curious for those experienced in these, what must you have in it?

Hi,

Im trying to install Sage 200 on W7 box but keep getting this error?

The installation configuration file in the Logon folder does not contain information generated by the Sage 200 Application Server installation

Other users have got it installed (but alas I didn't do them installs) so Im just looking to get the client on this particular desktop (the database live on a server on the network).

Any ideas?

Hi,

I have been using Excel (Google Sheets) to manage my accounts / balance sheet for the last number of years.

- income with Tax breakdown on the left
- expenses with Tax breakdown on the right
- totals at the bottom

It works well for me, however I'm slightly concerned over how easy it is to update a cell in error with '10' vs '10000' without recognising it.

Can anyone recommend any software that provides the following:

- easy interface
- export for backup
- ability to duplicate line items (recurring expenses and income) so that when a recurring payment lands in my bank account, i can duplicate a previous record and update the date
- add note to each line item

Additional Benefits
- app
- receipt management

Thanks in advance for your help.

My credit score has greatly improved and the value of my home has also skyrocketed compared to how much is left on my current mortgage.

I would like to refinance my current mortgage and also draw money through a home equity line of credit to pay off other higher interest rate debt.

What are some good banks, credit unions, or financial institutions for doing this?

I am looking to get a home equity loan for my condo.

My condo is currently worth more than $70,000 more than what is left on the mortgage and I would like to get a home equity line of credit.

Please provide me with a list of the best companies/websites for brokerage firms or companies that can provide home equity lines of credit.

I use the Neat company program, version 5.7. It has been working great, but after a backup, I can no longer open program. I get the "Neat has stopped working message" I tried to remove software and re-install to no avail. I attached the Neat log for reference. Any advise is appreciated.

Neat no longer supports this software as the have launched the cloud based program. I prefer to continue with the old software as I do not like my data on the cloud.

I also tried to restore systems. It seems all my restore points are corrupted. I ran a combo fix and would appreciate some advise on the outcome.

Is there a chart or article or rule of thumb for consulting rate differentials?
If a consultant gets paid $X dollars per hour on a W-2 basis, what does that translate to on a 1099 basis?
Is it 50% more? 2% more?  I'm interested in the higher-tax states like NY, NJ, CT, CA
I realize that state and city taxes factor into this so perhaps there might be a chart with various states/locales listed.

Recently when I tried to reconcile, I get the message that there are no transactions to reconcile but there are many that are marked with a c which indicates that they have not been reconciled. I crossed a month boundary so there wouldn't seem to be a statement date issue. How can this be corrected?

A client of mine believes that he might be entitled to a trust fund or other type of financial settlement fund and has asked for my advice in finding someone who will be able to look into this to see if any such accounts exist.

Are there any websites that can be used to research this information?

Or what type of attorney or financial adviser would be able to look into this for my client?

Two problems have cropped up on every workstation that I've installed the tax1099.com QB plugin.  Every workstation is either running Premier or Enterprise, both are running the 2016 version.  

1) Ability to access mapped drives vanishes.  Rebooting the computer sometimes once or twice seems to fix this problem, but after a couple of days, QB will stop seeing the mapped drives.  Uninstall the plugin, and the problem vanishes for good.  Re-install the plugin, the problem comes back right away.   If I'm working in an office with 5 computers, one or two may lose the ability to connect to the mapped drive while the rest are OK.  You can ALWAYS access the mapped drive via run, CLI, and My Computer.  The next day, it might be another computer that loses access.  It seems random when the problem crops up.  

2) The next problem is that eventually, QB will stop running.  Event Viewer will show a 1000 error.  Running the QB repair tool works sometimes, uninstalling the plugin never helps, but occasionally I have to do a complete un/reinstall of the QB software, which includes reinstalling the Tax1099.com plugin, which brings back the problem I addressed in number one.

I need someone who can figure out how to delete a "condensed" Journal Entry in QB and provide a utility to do this.  If you do not know what this type of entry is, please do not respond.

Hi Game programmers/ web / financial people who generally know about this kind of thing..

I saw an email for an opportunity to take online surveys and receive compensation.
Sounds too good to be true?

Anything that I have to provide credit card / banking information is a red flag consideration, right?

Thanks

We are getting a message that we cannot file State/Federal taxes from an user account that has total access.  It says that we have to be signed in as the administrator  or an external account.

Is that correct or is there some permission I can give the person to allow them to file the taxes from their account
