    Hi, i’m Sage Accounting Solution Support Team member, Now Sage 50 is the best-in-class business software that offers powerful accounting and invoicing solutions. It allows small and medium businesses to effectively manage their accounts, save time, and reduce manual accounting errors. But for the successful functioning of your software, it is necessary for your data to be error free. Any discrepancy with your data or accounting files and folders can lead to error messages while working on your Sage accounting software, leaving you confused and frustrated.

    One such error is “Error opening company.asd”. This is a very common error message and occurs when you are trying to access forms using Aviatrix in Sage 50. If you have already entered the Federal Tax ID number and generated W2’s and W3’s in Aatrix, next time if you make changes to the Federal Tax ID number and try to access company forms, you’ll end up with this error message. The error may restrict you from using the software all together and affect your overall work process.

    Follow the below mentioned steps to correct the error:

    If you are using Business center


      1. Go to Profile.


      1. Select Edit and then select Company information.


      1. Now select the Paths tab and note the payroll data path.


      1. Browse to the data path and double click on Company folder.


      1. Search Company.asd file and right click to rename to Company.old to fix the issue.



    If you are using the Payroll module
