SACS2012ALL Software Readme

The following contains the latest information about the SACS2012ALL software. It is in addition to or supersedes information that may be found in the SACS2012ALL Software User Guide.
What's New

Listed below is a summary of changes made to the 2012-13 budget and interim, and the 2011-12 unaudited actual, components of the SACS software. We incorporate changes requested by users wherever possible; you may recognize one of your suggestions being implemented here.

This year our efforts were primarily focused on required changes, with some enhancements, as summarized below. Many of the required changes relate to the new fund balance classifications required by Governmental Accounting Standards Board Statement 54 (GASB 54). For information on GASB 54 please see our January 7, 2011 letter, available on our Correspondence Web page. For additional information on each of the changes, refer to the relevant sections of this user guide.

KNOWN ISSUES:
Symptom

Formatting problems sometimes occur when printing forms from the Table of Contents. For instance, all of the grid lines will print in the upper left hand corner.

Probable Cause

Printer drivers. Unfortunately we have not found one printer driver that works for all components of the SACS software.

Resolution/Workaround

Various printer drivers work differently with the SACS software. Try changing the printer driver or print from the open form rather than from the table of contents.

Symptom

GPF error or system runs very slowly.

Probable Cause

The computer runs out of physical/virtual memory.

Workaround

Avoid opening too many windows concurrently. If the error is received, shut down the application and reboot the machine.

Problem

Known problem with Windows 7. Some users have reported problems running the SACS Software on Windows 7. The problems are not consistent among users, but they have been encountered while importing, exporting, running the technical review checklist, updating the validation tables, and printing, including printing from the Table of Contents.

Workaround

While these problems are not resolved, there is a workaround available at the SACS2012ALL Software: Known Problems/Fixes Web page.
