The attached document will detail information to assist with Triumph in a Terminal Server enviorment.

Triumph Business Systems Server Stablity Improvements 2018-01-25T12:52:01+00:00

Introduction:

The following settings should only be applied to server experience issues with, system freezes, major slow downs, and crashes. Please also ensure:

  • You backup your system and data before making any of the following changes to your server and systems.
  • Please check no other services on your network and server require Opportunistic locking, otherwise
  • Please research theses to make sure they are applicable to your system.

Common fixes:

Check Antivirus is up to date to latest versions and services packs

  • Trend Worry Free business Standard/Advanced should be at least version 7 with SP1

– Make sure Antivirus is excluding the scanning of the Triumph folder, eg, D:\Data\Triumph\

  • Also make sure the Triumph system files are also excluded, eg:

– D:\Data\Triumphv\Programs\msboot.exe
– D:\Data\Triumphv\Programs\Triumph.exe

  • Data Execution Protection (DEP) can be disabled for Triumph.exe and msboot.exe under certain circumstances. Only use if other fixes are not working.

Opportunistic Locking Windows:

When installing Triumph in a multi machine, multiuser environment, it is crucial that opportunistic locking is disabled to avoid data corruption. This is due to how Microsoft handles caching and access while files are being accessed by multiple users; which can result in conflicting records and or updates when enabled. The process to disable opportunistic locking on the machine where the data is stored is as follows (Backup your registry and server before proceeding):
1) Log on to the server with administration rights.
2) Open the local ‘Registry Editor’ (regedit) with administration rights.
3) For Microsoft Server 2008 and later ONLY; add or edit the following;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
<Enter DWORD32>
SMB2 = 0
4) For both Microsoft Server 2003 & 2008 operating systems; add or edit the following;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters
<Enter DWORD32>
EnableOplocks = 0

Please note:

These changes will also need to be made on any Windows based operating system that is acting as the Triumph data server. For Windows Vista and 7; use the Server 2008 settings. For Windows XP; use the Server 2003 settings. For other devices such as dedicated Network Attached Storage devices; please check their configuration and contact our office if you have any queries.

How do I add one of my own Crystal reports to a Triumph menu? 2018-01-19T07:50:49+00:00

You can simply and easily run your own Crystal Reports directly from the Triumph Accounting menus. Create a report (eg.. myreport.rpt) and save it in the RPT directory under TRIUMPH. Use the Maintain User Options (S-M-M) to define a new menu option and just put the name of your report e.g. myreport.rpt in the Target field (no directory path required). The system will look for the .rpt extension to determine if it needs to call the Crystal Runtime Engine. Note for Crystal Report Writers – Triumph will automatically work out the locations of the tables, so the same report can be used for multiple companies. Please refer to downloadable document attached for step by step instructions.

How do I add indexes in Triumph Accounting? 2018-01-25T12:56:03+00:00

Use the Visual Database Builder. You will need to set up dbAdminMode to ON first. When you select the file/table to work with remember to click the red padlock to unlock it. You can then go to the index tab and add your own. We suggest you use the last index 15. Remember index’s must be unique so you can not just add . It it’s a transaction file we suggest you add the transaction ID to the end of the index, i.e. . When you have finished you need to save the file changes and it will create the new index. NB: Although our updates should not interfere with a new index that you may have added we take no responsibly for this.

How can I remove users who have crashed from Triumph without having to validate? 2017-12-07T16:03:29+00:00

You can terminate system users without needing to do a full validation.

To do this the user must have full access rights to the Enquire on System Users option (S-M-E). Once in this menu option, select the bogus user and click on the terminate button.

Validations will still be necessary if a user crashes out whilst in Single-User mode.

Note that you should not use this method to terminate users if they are actively using the system. If they are in the system, you should ask them to log out properly from their workstation and not just boot them out using this option.

How can I move between Tabs in Triumph without using a mouse? 2017-12-07T16:02:35+00:00

 

A lot of Windows packages utilise the Alt key in addition to a letter to move around the screen without the aid of a mouse. This can create a problem as multiple menu options may begin with the same letter etc.

Triumph Accounting have allowed a quick jump facility in their screens with multiple tabs. You will notice a numbered square in the corner of each tab.

To switch between tabs hold your CTRL key down and press the number of the tab you wish to jump to.

Change the subject line on forms emailed 2018-01-25T12:51:10+00:00

The appearance of the subject line and the file attachment for forms emailed is configurable in Triumph 5.0.  Known as the The Form Mask it is applied system wide or for an individual company with the later taking precedence.

How to change The Form Mask.

The form mask is described in a section of the triumph.ini file.  This file exists in the lib folder but may also be found for each individual company.  The section below shows the standard settings or defaults.

[Forms]

FilenameMask=%f

SubjectMask=%n: %r

Edit triumph.ini and modify the tokens to the right of the ‘=’ sign with any of the combinations from the table below.

%r

Docket Reference No.I1092

%x

Fax No.08 9472 1874

You may also add any additional formatting characters such as ‘:’ spacing etc.  However keep in mind when editing the FilenameMask that characters must be valid i.e. Windows Explorer does not allow the following:

\/:*?”<>|

However the application automatic strips these characters, replacing them with a space, should they be found.

E.g.

[Forms]

FilenameMask=%f_%d

SubjectMask=%n: %r (%a)

In the example above the debtor’s custom invoice form (cf) generates the following subject and file respectively when sent as an email.

Can I print files electronically instead of wasting paper? 2018-01-16T15:26:52+00:00

It is possible to print your listings and reports to pdf files instead of having to print out a tree of paper every month.
The attached document explains how to do it.
IMPORTANT NOTE : It is vital that the files that you produce are saved to a location on your network that is part of your backup procedures. We suggest you create a new folder in your Triumph Directory and store them in there.

Can I load documents relating to stock items in Triumph Accounting? 2017-12-07T15:56:32+00:00

This is simple in version 4.
You’ll need to know where you saved the document that you want to hold against the stock item.
Go to I-F-A and choose your stock item.
Now go to the Documents tab at the bottom of the screen.
Now click on the Link icon on the right.
Go find your document that you wish to attach, highlight it and select Open.
The document will now be listed on the documents tab.
To open it, either double click on it or highlight it then press Open.

————————————————————————————-

In versions previous to version 4 do the following :
The document has to be placed in the images folder OR you can create a shortcut to where the original document may be found.

Note:

The entire filename may only be 10 characters long. What this means if you have a document called ‘Installation Notes.pdf’ when the shortcut is created in the images folder it must be 10 characters including the hidden ‘.lnk’ e.g. ‘in.pdf.lnk’. Once the shortcut is in the images folder you can either double-click or Alt+O to open the document which is done via the windows file type association.

Also we recommend you use a PDF format.

Can I change the background bitmap? 2018-01-16T15:24:05+00:00

You have two choices.

1.) You can let each of your staff members choose their own background which will be specific to the PC they are working on. To change this, you need to replace the tabkgrnd.bmp file with one that you prefer. This file is found on EVERY pc in the c:\Program Files\VDF7\bitmaps directory. It must have this name but you can rename one of your own files to see what you like.

A good thing to try first is changing your Windows background to the file you have chosen and have it set to be tiled. This will give you an indication of what it will look like in Triumph.

2.) The other option is for you to control what all people will see on their screens. By placing a file called tabkgrnd.bmp in your normal dat directory e.g. f:\apps\triumph\dat then all users will see the same. A file placed here will take precedence over a file placed in the local PC’s directory. This option is often used by clients who have more than one company and want to determine which one they are in. By utilising this method, different companies can display different bitmap backgrounds.

Can I create two timesheets for the same emplaoyee in a single pay run? 2017-12-28T10:43:00+00:00
More that one time sheet can be created for an employee in a pay run if required provided the option is turned on under SETUP – PAYROLL – PAYROLL OPTIONS second page Allow Multiple Timesheets
Each time sheet will be taxed separately and have a separate Pay Advice. Separate cheques or banking details will also be generated if the employee is paid by either of these methods.

Why would my bank have rejected my bank transfer file? 2017-12-07T15:51:20+00:00

Both the Supplier and Payroll programs have a menu option which allows the creation of a file which banking software can read to transfer funds directly from/to bank accounts.

Care must be taken to ensure the correct information is entered when selecting to create this file. Two fields in particular must have the correct information keyed, or the file will not be created correctly.

These fields are:

Destination Path – This field must contain only the drive information, eg C:\ – do not enter any additional detail in this field.

Output Device – Normally the report would be printed to a printer, but may be printed to the screen. Do not select to print to Disk File as this will print the report to the bank file resulting in the file being in the incorrect format. The file will be rejected by the bank.

Why do I have a pay missing from the payroll bank transfer file? 2017-12-07T15:50:26+00:00

If an employee’s pay is not included on the bank transfer file, there could be several reasons for this. Some of the most common causes are:

– When entering a time sheet, the Pay Advice Required field has been set to No.

– The Bank line type has been deleted from the body of the pay.

– The incorrect Company Bank account has been entered on the employee masterfile.

In these instances, uncheck the pays, make corrections, recheck the pays and create the bank transfer file again.

Why are my allowances / deductions not showing correctly on my tax summaries? 2017-12-07T15:49:17+00:00
This is due to the incorrect selection in the field on the Allowance / Deduction known as Tax Certificate Code.

Go to Setups | Payroll | Allowances(Deductions) | Maintain and adjust the Tax Certificate Code to fit the situation.

Do not show on Certificate – This does not show at all, usually used for reimbursement of expenses and normal personal deductions like HBF.
Include in Tax Certificate Totals – This is included in the gross figure. Items like Leave Loading fit this category.
Itemise on Tax Certificate – This prints item by item. Items like union fees and other items that can be claimed and therefore separate figures are required fit this category.

Which gross-up rate applies to reportable fringe benefits? 2017-12-07T15:47:39+00:00

The new FBT gross-up rate will not affect the calculation of an employee’s reportable fringe benefits amount. When calculating an employee’s individual fringe benefits amount, employers will continue to use the former gross-up rate of 1.9417 for reporting on the employee’s group certificate or payment summary. This is regardless of whether benefits that are provided are type 1 or type 2 benefits.

The new gross-up formula is only used to calculate the employer’s fringe benefits tax liability.

When is it correct to use Adjustment Pays? 2017-12-07T15:46:49+00:00
You may need to enter an Adjustment pay for a number of reasons including:
Overpayment 
Underpayment 
Earnings costed to an incorrect cost centre or income code 

Incorrect tax deduction

It is not necessary to enter a correcting Adjustment pay for a pay entered within the same pay run. Pays can be modified until included in the Process Pay.

Points to consider:

Header

Function

If you choose Empty or Standard Pay, only pay components will display. Hours or values must be calculated and entered manually. Tax will be calculated automatically but can be overridden.

If you choose Other Pay, you can select to read in any of the pays on file for this employee using Find (F2) on the Pay Number field. Tax will show as per the original pay. Reverse (F8) can be selected on the Header which means the pay will be displayed in reverse and can then be modified if necessary.

Description

Enter a brief description for this Adjustment pay. This description will display on the Pay Details Report and on Enquiries on the pays.

Pay Advice Required

Should payment information be generated for this pay?

‘Yes’ will generate payment details such as a pay advice, cheque or bank transfer transaction etc. but will do so for a positive adjustment only. 

If ‘No’ is selected, only figures will be updated but no pay advice or payment details will be generated such as cheque, coinage or bank details. Enter ‘No’ if only adjusting figures or cost centre details etc. 

If ‘Yes’ is entered for both a timesheet and an adjustment within the same pay run for the same employee, both will generate a pay advice.

Body 

Add or modify lines as required. 
Check to ensure that the Gross, Tax and Net figures are correct before accepting the pay. 
Auto Tax can be overriden.

Note:

Monthly Income for Super for Casual Employees does not update for Adjustments, only Timesheets.

What is the new pay summary report? 2017-12-07T15:45:13+00:00

 

The Pay Summary Report (available from Business Partner 1.23.000 and Attaché Catapult 1.03.000) is a new report which should be useful to all Payroll users. It shows the total pay amounts for a specified period. The report shows the gross pay, taxable pay, tax, deductions and net pay.

The gross pay shows all income types such as normal pay, overtime and allowances, but the taxable pay includes only those income types that are taxable. The deductions show amounts such as union fees that are taken out of the after-tax pay before payment is made to the employee.

This report lets users check total pay amounts for the selected period, and may prove useful for other purposes such as Fringe Benefits Tax returns.

All you need to send to the ATO are the magnetic media file and this Magnetic Media Information form. Users reporting by magnetic media can print payment summaries on plain paper. You do not need to complete a “PAYG Payment Summary Statement” (previously called an annual reconciliation) when using magnetic media, nor do you need to lodge paper copies of the payment summaries.

What is the difference between locations and pay points? 2017-12-07T15:43:25+00:00

Use Locations where employees are located in separate areas and location sorting and subtotalling are required on some reports e.g. sick leave taken by individual locations. A Location can be a suburb, state, branch etc.

If employees can work in different sites week by week, use Pay Points to direct a pay to a particular site. Pay Points can also be used to sort pay advices into areas within a company to make distribution easier.

It is possible to have Pay Points within a Location.

Note: If an employee moves from one Location to another and their code is changed via ‘Change Employee Location/Code’, all their period and year to date totals transfer to the new Location. If this is unsuitable or two separate Tax Certificates for an employee are required, then the employee should be terminated in the original location and set up as a new employee in the new location.

What is the difference between fixed and variable pay items? 2017-12-07T15:42:18+00:00

This information applies to Allowances, Deductions, Employee Bank Accounts and Employer Super Contribution codes.

Fixed type
During standard pay maintenance or transaction entry the code can be selected but the Fixed field cannot be accessed. Any change made to this type of code, will immediately affect any Standard Pays with this code.

Variable
During standard pay maintenance or transaction entry the field can be modified. Any amount entered during set up will appear as a default amount in transaction entry or standard pay entry and can be modified.
