Home | News & Updates | Sage tip of the week | Verify Data in Commercials

Verifying data is an important aspect of running any business.

When you verify your data in Sage 200 Commercials you validate key quantities within the module.

The focus of these checks is the stock quantities and the order/return line values for sales and purchases. To verify your data in Sage 200 Commercials read on!


The names of users currently logged on to Sage 200 are displayed when you try to run Verify Data. They must log off Sage 200 for you to complete the activity. Once in progress, the system prevents other users from logging onto Sage 200.

All users will need to be out of Sage or not actively working in the ‘commercials’ modules.

You may need to clear disconnected logins first. If you are not sure how to do this then read this article.

Go to Accounting system manager > system utilities > verify data > commercials

  • Tick ‘Validate, report and correct anomalies’
  • Tick ‘Stock Control’
  • Then click OK.

You will be warned that the routine might take some time however it should not take more than a few minutes usually so just click ‘Yes’

You will see a process bar while Sage works through the ledgers

Sage will produce an errors log which you can just close. You don’t need to review the information on here, your issue might not show on here although the routine may still have resolved it.

Close the errors log. If you have run this routine to try and fix and error check that it has been resolved and if not report to Smith Cooper Sage Support.

Users can now continue to use Sage as normal.
