While most users seem quite unconcerned about the occasional error messages they encounter with their Peachtree (Sage 50) accounting software, Peachtree error messages should not be ignored. In fact, they should be taken quite seriously.
Many people are so used to receiving errors from various software programs and Windows itself, that they've become "numb" to error messages - not phased by them like they once might have been. How about you? Have you gotten into the habit of automatically ignoring those error messages that pop up from time to time?
How often have you received the Windows message: "application file has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.... Please tell Microsoft about this problem..."? So you cancel the message and restart the program. No big deal - right?
You should expect to receive few error messages from Peachtree. Also, in the rare case where one or more Peachtree error messages are encountered, you should expect it to be a fairly straight forward process to identify the problem causing the message(s).
When Peachtree error messages are displayed, each one should be considered as an important comment on the health of your Peachtree accounting software or the computer system it runs on - not something to be carelessly brushed aside.
