Make is easy to keep track of which company you are in.

Have you ever accidentally started entering live information in a historical or backup company because you forgot to switch companies?

Sage 100 ERP (MAS 90/200) version 4.4 and newer allows you to control the background color for each company. This Sage 100 ERP (MAS 90/200) tip will provide you the steps to change the background color for a company.

  • Go to Library Master > Main > Company Maintenance
  • Select your company code (I’ve used company XYZ)
  • Click on Tab #2 Preferences
  • Towards the bottom of the screen look for Background Color and check the box for “Enable Company Specific Background Color”
  • Then click on the Select Color”



·     A color pallet window will appear where you can select a background color.

o  Tip: You may want to select a somewhat muted color Very Dark or very bright colors can make it difficult to read the text on the screens.





·     You can select a color from the choices on the Color window, or you can click on “Define Custom Colors to get a larger range of colors






·     Click on OK when you have a color you like

·     Note that when you go back into Sage 100 ERP the main screen and any Library master screens do not change because they are global to all companies in Sage 100 ERP; however any screens that you launch within other modules will have your company specific background color displayed

*Note, we are not responsible for poor taste in color coordination as you can see below Smile
