creating company files

Hi guys, can somebody help me with my issue?  apparently when I downloaded the sage 50 accounting 2020,  I ignored to select  create a new company and now that I am going to do receivable and payables set-up lesson I cannot do it.  When I open Sage software it will bring me to Sagedata20 instead of the welcome and select company window  What shall I do?


  • Hi Rodello, 

    Thanks for reaching out! Here's a blog on how to Get your Sage 50 CA Welcome Screen Back

    As long as you can open the "Sagedata20" and access the View menu, you can do the main step below:

    Main Step:

    What you have to do is open a company database and go to the View menu to select the option Select Company Windows At Startup.

    Now relaunch the software to see the below screen at startup, and take care to not click the "Do not show the Select Company window at startup" radio button.

    Hope this helps!

    Warm Regards,
