Changing the Vat rates in Sage Line 50

Feb 11

After we changed the vat for the second time in a year I amended this program to allow the users to change the vat code across customers and products. This version was written for Sage 2009. for the example I have hard coded the tax code but you would use a variable :)

Function ChangeVat()

'check defaults

Dim bFlag As Boolean
Dim i As Integer, tmpInt As Long, tmpProg As Long, tmpCount, tmpLetter As String, tmpType As Double
Application.Echo True, "Checking for Sage Preferences to Add"
If ChkPrefs = False Then
    GoTo Sage_ExitImport
End If

' goto the first sales ledger record

        ' Edit the Record
        If oSalesRecord.Edit Then
            ' Change the Account Name
            oSalesRecord.Fields.Item("DEf_TAX_CODE").Value = 2
        ' Update the Record
            If oSalesRecord.Update Then
                ' The Update was Successful
                Application.Echo True, "Account " & oSalesRecord.Fields.Item("ACCOUNT_REF").Value &" was edited successfully."
                ' The Update was Unsuccessful
                MsgBox "The account could not be edited."
            End If
        End If
