12-19-07 Year-end EFW2 Changes The Social Security Administration decided that “Magnetic Media” was an outdated term, so they have changed “MMREF” (Magnetic Media Reporting Electornic Filing) to “EFW2” (Electronic Filing for W2’s). And of course they couldn’t leave well enough alone, so they added a “Software Vendor Code” field to the “Submitter Fields”. Included with this update is a new “PRM” file which reflects these changes.

12-17-07 Year-end payroll forms and tax changes The W-2 form was (of course) changed again. The employee social security box was switched with the Control Number box , to make it less likely for employee social security numbers to show through in a window envelope. (Actually one of the more sensible changes in recent years!)

10-2-07 Bank Reconciliation Check Sequence Warning In the Bank Reconciliation routine, we installed warning message if you have reused a check number sequence. If you receive this message, please contact Control G Support and we will assist you in renumbering your old checks.

07-02-07 Payroll Percentage Deductions In the payroll module, we added payroll options to cause Fixed #1 or Fixed #4 deduction to act as a percentage if: the deduction is less than 1.00 and the Agency Name option "F4 (or F1) is % if < 1" is activated. Related is a new payroll Agency Name option "Add Back Pre-Gross 4 % F1" (which means Add Back Pre-Gross when calculating the Fixed #1 Percentage Deduction) & "Add Back Pre-Gross 4 % F4" which will add back the Pre Gross' deduction for calculation purposes.

06-14-07 A/R Statements Sort Option In the A/R Statement printing routine (open invoice option), we added a sort choice (either Invoice # or date).

05-20-07 Pick List or Entry List Option The A/P Aging Routine and the A/R Aging Routines provide options for limiting these reports to specific vendors or clients. These routines default to providing a “Pick List” of vendors or clients. If you would prefer to manually list selected vendors or clients, call us and we’ll show you how to alert the system to this alternative behavior.

04-17-07 [Alt+F5] Standard Print Option Over the years, we have developed many alternative reports for certain reporting routines. Many of you actually utilize both the standard and the alternative reports. This option will allow you to change report settings on the fly from the “Standard Printer Device” screen.

03-30-07 Pending Charges Date Limit We added a "Date Limit" to the "Pending Charges Summary" report. Please realize that this does not make this an “as of” report, it simply limits the reporting to the “Date Limit” specified.

03-26-07 Expanded Payroll Masterfile In the payroll employee masterfile, we expanded the employee name and City State Zip field into separate fields - we also added a birth date field. We also changed all corresponding payroll reports and procedures to accommodate these expanded fields.

03-23-07 Strata Exceptions Log In the media import procedure, we activated the "exceptions log" feature for Strata media imports.

03-23-07 Employee Earnings Summary Report We created new "Employee Earnings Summary" payroll report. This report is only available during employee masterfile maintenance by pressing the [Shift+F7] key combination at the employee browse screen (of course at the employee for which you are requesting this information).

01-17-07 Optional Vendor Payment Report VENPYMT2 report now included in report database.

01-17-07 A/R Aging Client Select Pick List We changed the A/R Aging "Client Select" procedure to a “Pick List” ([Spacebar] toggle). If you prefer to manually enter your list of clients, see Pick List or Entry List option above.

I have been a user of Control G Software products since 1993 and never found any other software that compares to it. The user friendly style and format that Control G utilizes is comprehensive and easy to master. The number of reports that help Ad Agency principals understand their business and control cost accounting and efficiencies are remarkable. I would recommend Control G to any Ad Principal or Accounting Department within an Ad Agency environment. Todd Cooley, Cooley Enterprises, Phoenix, AZ
