Limitations When Opening Multiple Companies

Although Sage 50 will allow you to have multiple companies open at the same time, certain features in Sage 50 will work ONLY in the company that was opened first. To use these features in companies opened secondarily, close the company that was opened first and then try again.

Note: The first company that was opened will be marked with an asterisk in the Windows Taskbar at the bottom of your screen.
