Paymate is changing the Acclaim program and this will affect all Blue Link users that import payroll information from Acclaim to all versions of Blue Link

New files are available from http://bluelink.ca/ftp/paymate/BLPaymate2007.zip

People using v8.6 and below should contact Blue Link for instructions

Versions 9.0 and Above

For v9.0 and above, both Access and SQL, Paymate Import is done from with Blue Link.

Please unzip and place the files into  the C:\Program Files\Blue Link\Solutions SQL\ folder, or whatever folder has the Elite(SQL).mde file in it.


To find the exact folder you are using, Right click on your Blue Link short cut and click on Properties.  Then look for the target path.  Copy and paste the target path to Word or Notepad to see the entire path.  It should look something like "C:\Program Files\Access 2003 Runtime\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" /runtime /nostartup /excl "C:\Program Files\Blue Link\Solutions SQL\EliteSQL.MDE"

The information after /excl (excluding .mde file) is the folder that the new Paymate files need to be copied into, over writing existing files.

Once this is done, the next time you go to Import from Paymate, you MUST browse to the paymate\year folder from ‘Step 1 – Select the path to the Paymate Data File:’ browse button of the Paymate Payroll Import screen – example -  C:\PAYMATEW\Demo.cpy\2007

This will automatically copy the required files into the Paymate folder.

Now Paymate Import will work the way it always has.
