  • Using CDSCMP/OFF

    When maintaining office records in Advantage, CDSCMP/OFF creates a new version of the office each time it is added or changed.  Older versions have a status of  "O".  You also use CDSCMP/OFF to define the jurisdictions in which a business unit is subject to tax. You identify states, provinces, or countries where a business unit is taxable at the second and third tabs of the Office Maintenance dialog box at CDSCMP/OFF. Be careful when maintaining your office setup, however, because deleting an obsolete version of an office record will also delete all corresponding taxation setup. You can find more information on this issue by reading Alert 262055. You can review other alerts that affect your Advantage revision by logging into the ACS support …

  • Bob Gray: Voice of Experience

    Bob Gray has the distinction of having more years of seniority at ACS than the company has been in business.  That's because Bob was working at one of the firms that merged to become T & B Computing (the original name of ACS) and was allowed to count his years of service there when T & B Computing was formed.  In his 30+ years here, Bob has witnessed remarkable changes in operating systems, programming languages and software technology.  When he first began his career in computing, he programmed in Fortran for a mainframe computer, even using card decks on occasion, and had to debug using core dumps (or hex dumps).  Access to the computer was through shared terminals in a terminal room, where they were connected via phone modems …
