Created on  | Last modified on 

Summary

This guide helps you to set up the Nominal Link in Sage 50cloud Payroll to post to Sage 200.

Description

In Sage 50cloud Payroll, you can use the nominal link option to post your salary journals directly into Sage 200 Accounts. Alternatively, you can create files to import into other accounting packages.

The nominal link may post to earlier versions than those listed for example, Line 100 and Sage MMS, but these versions are no longer supported by Sage Technical Support.

Before setting up the nominal link within Sage 50cloud Payroll you will need to install the nominal link components. Details can be found on article.

Resolution

What versions can Sage 50cloud Payroll post to?

Sage 50cloud Payroll can post the nominal link to the following versions of Sage 200 Accounts:

  • Sage 200
  • Sage 200 2018
  • Sage 200 2017
  • Sage 200 2016
  • Sage 200 2015


How does Sage 50cloud Payroll post the information?

Sage 50cloud Payroll uses the accounts SDO Engine file to post the nominal link information. The SDO Engine that payroll uses to post is a suite of files rather than a single one, like the one used by Sage 50 Accounts and Instant Accounts.

The SDO Engine is installed by payroll and consists of the following files:

  • SYSDLL32.DLL
  • SVNCOM32.DLL
  • SVNFIL32.DLL
  • SVNBAR32.DLL
  • SVNCAT32.DLL

The files are located in system32 for a 32-bit Windows operating system and sysWOW64 for a 64-bit Windows operating system.
