Error getting data from Excel - Numeric Format

The data in the field is in the wrong format, the most common is the InvRef field. If you have only entered a number in this field, MS Excel will have formatted the field into a Number format. Prefix the first number with an apostrophe ' and the data will then be recognised and loaded.

Alternatively, enable the Enhanced Excel Check feature - see information in the Help file:

Cannot open SETUP.DTA

Your Sage data is held on another machine and E2S cannot find the Sage Company names held in the local registry. 

In version 2020.09.1 onwards,  E2S will look for Sage company locations whenever the Company tab is opened.

To override this and amend manually, enable the "Update Companies Manually" option in Configuration.

Save Configuration and then the company name field will be available to edit in the Company tab.

Save all Changes when complete.
