When using the Write Payroll command, it gives an error message after you hit the Write Payroll button and choose a payment method.

This is a new bug that was introduced in the version 4.3 update for the Goldenseal payroll software.

User bug reports.


In version 4.3, you can do the following:

  1. Use the Write Payroll command as usual.
  2. When it asks you to choose a payment method, leave the account clairvoyant field blank.
  3. Goldenseal will create Payroll Records, but it won't create paychecks.
  4. Choose Checking Transactions from the Bank menu, and choose the bank account you'll use for paychecks.
  5. Click the New button.
  6. Enter Employee into the Pay To popup field.
  7. Enter an employee into the Account clairvoyant field.
  8. Enter Payroll in the Breakdown popup field. Goldenseal will fill in a list of unpaid Payroll Records.
  9. Repeat steps 5 to 8 for each employee.


This problem is fixed in the version 4.32 update for Goldenseal payroll software.
