...Payroll checklist 2008 payroll close
I have a question on the procedures for 2008 payroll close
1. We already created our year end wage file, step 7, step 8 we did our back
up, step 9 is in process, on steps 10 and 12 if I do this does this affect
the year end wage file already created?? We did not print w2s yet, when i
clear in active employees in step 12 does it just affect process going
forward and not the wage file I already created, I am new at this and this
ism our first gp 10 payroll close.
...Allocating Tips in Payroll
In one of the forums, someone asked me several questions regarding tip
allocation using GP Payroll. I posted an article to my blog that goes
through the entire calculation, but now I cannot find the thread where the
question was posed.
So, if you are still out there. . . the article was posted to :

I have a client who closed their payroll year and issued W2s. Now,
they've realized that because the last payroll of 2008 was printed on
12/31 but not distributed until January 2nd, it needs to fall into
2009 for wage reporting purposes.
My first thought to correct this was to void the checks from the last
payroll and re-issue them but I've discovered GP won't let you do this
once the payroll year has been closed.
Has anyone ever run into this scenario and if so, how was it

blog: www....Payroll Error
My client's payroll hung up when doing a build, she isn't sure why as she had
run one earlier in the day and it was fine. We deleted all the files listed
in the knowledgebase article, and did check links. She can now build the
batch but when she tries to calculate it she gets and error "UPR Temp Post 1
failed, path does not exist", then an "incorrect record length error". I
can't find anything on either of these other than deleting the activity files
and work files of the company database and system.
Any other ideas? There were none of the temp files ...Canadian Payroll vs US Payroll
Can someone tell me the differences in the tables and fields which are
populated and updated in Canadian Payroll vs US Payroll?
The quick answer: Everything!!!
In Canadian Payroll, there are over 200 tables all with their physical
names prefixed by CPY. I wouldn't even hazard a guess at the number of
fields in there let alone guess at the number of tables and fields in
the US Payroll which is totally separate.
They are all listed under Tools > Resource Descriptions > Tables if you
have those products installed.
Good luck on your count and in deciding what is populated and/or

I've been working on a payroll workbook, and most everything is working the
way I want it to except the YTD totals. I want to update the YTD cell with
the push of a button (or keystrokes) after the user finishes with the rest
of the values. Help?
Presumably you have a spreadsheet in which you update specific data and then
get a YTD total at the end. I understand that you want to update the data
first and then calculate the YTD total afterwards.
The simplest way to do what you want is the following.
In the Excel sheet select <Tools><Options> and select the <Ca...Upgrading to GP2010 with payroll
Has anyone that uses payroll upgraded to GP2010 yet? We use the advance

this upgrade? We would like to upgrade ASAP, but may wait till SP1 is
released if there are issues with payroll.

...Payroll needs an advanced gross up calculator
Payroll needs a more advanced gross up calculator that can be used per
employee and that you can use during the payrun to recalculate on the fly
before printing the checks. I want to be able to enter the employee ID,
enter the net amount, and adjust taxes/deductions as necessary before
printing. Many other products such as Abra, Ceridian, Quickbooks and Kronos
offer this functionality. It is essential that payroll offer this
flexibility as well.

We have a problem with multiple payrates, when a paycheck has more than three
line items per pay code, in our case multiple rates, GP combines the hours on
the third line with the default payrate for that paycode. Has anyone come
across a fix for this? We are on GP V. 9.0358.
...Reports/Payroll/Employee Lists/Lists by Deduction
We're on GP 7.5 and this report (and probably others in the same area)
doesn't include $$ for employees' deduction codes that have been inactivated,
yet were used sometime during the date range being used. Per MSBS, this has
not changed in any later versions, and we have to mark the setup to include
inactive employees if we want $$ for inactive codes to be included. Doing
that brings in every employee we ever had.......that's certainly not
This report(s) needs another setting to mark indicating whether or not to
include employees' inactive codes....or so...Payroll Tax Updates Includes All Patches...Why??
We recently upgraded from GP7.5 to GP9.0 including Canadian Payroll. One
thing we have noticed now is that with GP9.0, the payroll tax updates include
all previous hotfixes, even if they have nothing to do with payroll. This is
problematic for us because we have a large GP environment including several
customizations, and we need to do extensive testing anytime we release an
update to GP.
In GP7.5, the tax updates only affected the users with Canadian Payroll, but
now all of our clients must be updated since the version numbers change for
all of the modules that are patched with the t...Year to Date Amount on Payroll Check
We just printed out our first payroll check for 2007. The amount for the

In the State of Ohio, worker’s comp wages are calculated by adding certain
benefits and subtracting certain deductions. Is there any way that the
deduction and benefit codes can have an input box for worker’s comp codes
similar to what the pay codes have? Since we cannot calculate the wages in
the system correctly, the monthly liability posting is incorrect in addition
to paying the wrong amount to the state.

be reported on her w-2, but how does this get to the w-2 to box 12 with the
