To confirm that you are using the new software, check the versions under Help – About, they should be as follows.

1. New Transaction Line Enquiries
New Sales/Purchase Order and Invoice Line Enquires have been provided. This allows users to enquire from the line detail perspective making information like customer and product sales/purchases much easier to get.
2. Cost at Time of Sale
The cost at the time of a sale has been added. This is not currently available in standard Sage 50 and so allows AccountsMate users to report more accurate cost of sales and profit figures. The application uses the product audit transaction list in Sage 50 to find the nearest cost price to the date of the sale for a product.
3. New Fields in Supplier and Customer Transaction Enquiries
The following fields have been added to the Supplier and Customer Transaction Enquiries.
- Extra Reference
- Nominal Account
Also the Line Type (i.e. Stock/Service) have been added to Sales/Purchase Order, Invoice & Analysis Enquiries.
4. Custom Field Labels
AccountsMate will now display the Custom Field Labels from Sage 50 (e.g. for Customer/Supplier Analysis Codes & Address Lines and Product Categories). This will make enquiries more readable.
5. Support for Latest Versions of Sage 50 (up to v29)
The latest versions of Sage 50 are now fully supported.

7. Performance Enhancements and Fixes.
Improved Refreshing of Data across all enquiries. This is done by loading the data in batches and shows the progress of the refresh. It also allows the user to cancel. The total records are displayed when a refresh is complete.
