What Causes the Sage Error 711?
Certain issues in your system may contribute to the occurrence of the Sage 711 error. Two such important issues are listed below-
- The User may be having insufficient rights/privileges to use the AP module.
- Some of the company files are not registered in the Windows registry
How to fix the Sage Error 711?
Please follow the step-by-step procedure below to fix the Sage Error 711-
- firstly, you need to close the Sage 50 software and other programs related to it on your system ( as for example, the Sage Accpac 300 ERP application)
- In this step, you need to navigate to the folder that includes your Sage company file and other files related to the Sage software (example- the Sage Accpac folder, if you are using the Sage 300 ERP application). Also, please make sure this folder enjoys all the privileges needed for the AP module to function smoothly.
In case you (or the concerned user, for that matter) do not quite have the necessary rights, you will have to obtain/assign the complete rights. Then only you/ the user will be able to work on the AP module
If you are using the Windows 7 or Vista operating system, you will need to convert the user into a power user.
5th Step :
Once the necessary rights have been assigned to the user, execute the RegAcc.exe file. To do so, you must possess admin rights. This file can be located in the Sage install-able folder, usually included in the C:\Program Files
