SACS2014ALL Software: Known Problems/Fixes

The sacs2014allsetup.exe file will not include fixes made subsequent to the SACS2014ALL software release. If any problems are found, we will list them here and provide any revised files or workaround instructions.

Problem: Known Printing Issues Relating to Windows 7

After the Standardized Account Code Structure (SACS) software was modified to mitigate the worst of its incompatibilities with Windows 7, many software testers encountered a remaining printing problem where a fund form, supplemental form, or report is sent to the printer, and the SACS software print status window freezes.  (This is not an issue when printing the Technical Review Checklist (TRC), the import log, or from the User Data Input/Review screen.)

Workaround:  Anticipating this problem for all Windows 7 users, the California Department of Education's (CDE’s) workaround is to print first to Microsoft XPS Document Writer or Adobe PDF, then send the document to the printer. 

Possible Fix:  After extensive testing within CDE’s test environment, we are able to send forms and reports directly to printers by using the following print drivers (which are specific to our model printers), and by changing a particular printer setting specifically for Hewlett-Packard (HP) printers.  CDE does not advocate the purchase or use of any specific printer brand or model and provides this information only as a basis for local educational agencies (LEAs) to test with different print drivers and/or settings if desired.

Problem: Run-time Error 429

Periodically, the required Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) file is not properly installed, causing a run-time error 429 upon opening the SACS software.

Fix: Be sure all other applications are closed, then download this MDAC file: mdactyp (EXE; 7MB). Once downloaded, double-click on the file to begin installation (be sure to read the prompts thoroughly). When the installation is completed, the SACS software should open properly.
