Calendar Year 2020 is a Leap Year - Remember to update the February Period in GL Setup
Because the calendar year 2020 is a leap year, you'll need to verify the February period is updated to reflect 2/29 as the last day of the month.
How to update the February period in GL Setup:
If you have a Fiscal Year-End (June 30th, September 30th, etc.), you are likely already in F/Y 2020. If you have a Calendar Year-End December 31st, you will soon be closing F/Y 2019 (if you haven't already) and rolling into F/Y 2020.
For Calendar-Year databases, please do this AFTER you close F/Y 2019.

Are you a Dynamics SL customer? If you are, chances are that you’ll need to print checks in SL in 2019.
Before attempting to print checks in 2019, remember to purge the 2017 year so that 2018 will become “current” and 2019 will be the “next” 1099 Year.
How to purge oldest year in Dynamics SL
From within the Accounts Payable (AP) module in SL, open the 1099 Calendar Year Control screen. If the “current” year value is 2017, then it needs to be purged.
As the screen notes, ‘the purge option should only be used after final printing of the 1099 forms for the oldest year displayed on this screen has been completed…it is recommended that backup copies of your database be made immediately prior to this process.’
Once you are ready to purge, click ‘Begin Processing’.
