Revelation METRO Launched
After Months of hard work and many late hours, the new Revelation METRO has been launched. This innovative development once again places Revelation solidly in the lead when it comes to Development, "ease-of-use" and keeping with market trends.

The controversial release of Windows 8 has sparked a huge debate World wide, but one thing is certain...for the foreseeable future, the METRO look and feel is here to stay.  The announced release of Windows 9 in the 2nd quarter 2015 is said to set Microsoft back on track and by all accounts they are poised to stick with the Metro look and feel (Albeit in a more user friendly format...only time will tell).

In keeping with this trend, Revelation is the first (and to my knowledge...the only) accounting package to venture down the METRO path. The Main Menu has been developed is such as way as to conform to the Metro methodology in that you can populate the Main Revelation Desktop with Frequently used TILES, but at the same time allowing users to quickly and effortlessly navigate to other less used functions.

Revelation has decided to make the METRO Version available to all it's existing SLA Client...FREE of charge. Simply hit the [UPDATE] button and then select the User Preference. Now choose the [Metro Menu] under the "Preferred Main Menu type".

In order to not alienate existing users, we have not remove any of the older menu types. For those users that find the Metro Menu to modern, simply click the [Help] button on the Main Toolbar, and then select the "Revert to classic menu system".

Other exiting news is that Revelation also allows this Metro menu to be edited by the user to any Language the prefer

Kaspersky Crashes REVPRO.MDB
Kaspersky have acknowledged that a bug crept into their last update that caused Kaspersky to create this zero byte SYSTEM.MDB file in the folder where the program runs (refer below). 

When you are trying to access Revelation, the system says:

" There appears to be a problem accessing the REVPRO.MDB file at address: \\Server\winrevpro\.

Please follow the steps in the attached file in order to resolve the problem.


  1. In Kaspersky, disable “System Watcher”. If you can’t do this, simply disable Kaspersky for now. Kaspersky says they have “rolled back their databases”, so, I assume that, once the client’s Kaspersky program downloads the next update, they can re-enable “System Watcher”.
  2. In the Rev folder (\WinRevPro, \ProSB, etc), look for and DELETE any SYSTEM.MDB files.
  3. I could NOT find any SYSTEM.MDB files in the Company folders, but, if you get the same error when you go into Rev and select a company, check each of the Company folders in the \WinRevPro folder and look for and DELETE any SYSTEM.MDB files.
  4. If it is a 64bit computer and the problem persists, apparently it creates a zero byte SYSTEM.MDB file in the \Windows\SysWow64 folder as well – ALSO DELETE THAT FILE.


I then hunted around Kaspersky’s website forum and found that they generated this problem in their last update (2014/04/09) and Access based systems that use Kaspersky have been crashing all over the world since the update.


Updated by MedvedevUnited
Please, see this post with possible fix and instructions:
Rolled back databases are on update servers. Please, run databases update, it should prevent occurring the issue. If system.mdb (0 bytes) exists on the system - it was created by our Kaspersky AV and should be deleted.
It can be safely deleted manually (but only if it's 0 bytes size!).
 Our engineers are working on the standalone utility to scan and delete the file automatically from affected PCs.

Official reply from Kaspersky Lab:

On behalf of KL dev team I want to apologies once again.
We have a lot of test cases and test procedures for updatable modules but the following specific case wasn't covered.

We will improve our test procedures learning this lesson but also believe it's important to explain the reason of the issue and be transparent for our customers.

The reason of the issue is the following:
1) yesterday we updated "system watcher" protection module of Kaspersky security products,
2) this module analyses behavior of the running application in the system to proactively detect new malware,
3) but because this detection is at-runtime, not at-startup some files and registry keys can be already modified/deleted at the moment of detection,
4) this is why system watcher makes backup copies of files/keys before modification by unknown applications run in the system.

The real issue:
5) unfortunately, there was a bug in this functionality related to a rare case when an application tries to open file for writing which does not exist.
System watcher makes a backup copy of this non-existing file but opens file for reading with mistaken attributes (OPEN_ALWAYS instead of OPEN_EXISTING) - this results in creating a new file with 0 bytes size.

6) MS JET (at least 3.5 and 4.0) tries to read SystemDB file and if it simply doesn't exist - continue its work. But if the file exists with unexpected internal structure - JET stops working with an exception (it's not a right behavior but JET is older than Windows XP). "

New 2014 Website
It has been a long time coming and is finally here. Revelation's all new, innovative and powerful Website.

Team Vanto has been hard at work to create one of the most exciting and powerful websites on the market. The aim of the website is not only to give new prospective clients insight into the Revelation World, but also to assist existing clients with utilising their Revelation packages to the full.

The Special members area will allow existing users to gain access to transactional History with Revelation, download Invoices and even make online Payments. In addition they will have access to the Complete 700 page manual, online training, and Frequently asked questions.  The Questions have been set up in  such a way that it will be easy to navigate your way to the required information, and on the way, learn things about Revelation that you never knew possible.

The new Video Training engine (Available 1 March2014) will allow newcomers to the Revelation Family, how to negotiate Revelation. The training is done in the privacy of your own office, without the huge expenses usually associated with training. This initiative makes the Revelation Training department, on of the Global leaders in their field, giving user the quickest training response times. Due to it's rapid growth, especially in the African and Asian Markets, Revelation needed a new tool to train up users in the least amount of time. The training video series is ideal. 

Revelation came across this idea when one of the directors started their PPL License recently. "I was expecting a trained professional to give us lectures, but instead they sat me down in front of a PC with some headphones" the member said. This gave him the idea to pursue the self training option for Revelation. Well done team!!!

Other unique concepts of the new website will include, Online Quotes, Orders and even on-line purchases. You will also be able to track any posted material ordered from Revelation as well as View Special Features custom designed for clients and vote for concept ideas that stream in via our Wish List engine. If you have any new ideas for Revelation, log into the members area and list your idea. Aldo add pictures and other material relevant to the concept. Other users will then vote on your idea. Once it reaches a critical point, the development will automatically take place.

Existing users with valid SLA Contracts may use their Disk number as a User Name and Password to access the members area.

Avast Attacks Revelation
We have had several complaints this morning from our clients running Avast Anti-Virus. All the companies that did updates on Avast would have received an update that attacks the Revelation Executable files as well as the Desktop Icon. Avast is Detecting Code within Revelation`s Main Start up executable as Malicious, this is what we call a false positive. This is a Mistake on the Anti-virus side. We do not in any way suggest that you replace your Anti-virus but instead, to add Revelation to the Ignore List within Avast , Better known as " Exclusions " We recommend that you contact the Support Center to assist you with a work around. Or look to our support tab on the top of the screen and then click utility Programs to find a Walk through to fix it yourself. Regards

Urgent VAT Changes on Revelation
The VAT Engine is changing on the 1st of March 2013 – Take note!!! The Receiver of Revenue has been hard at work in becoming one of the most effective Tax agencies in the world. They have been implementing new systems and procedures and recently rolled out their new requirements on VAT submissions. These changes were first instructed by our client, Procon Marketing and their Auditors. We would like to take this opportunity to thanks them for making this development possible. Procon is a market leader in the importing and distribution of PPE product and is responsible for thousands of lives involved in the South African mining and related industries.

Also a very big “thank you !!!” to Tracy Wormald and her Company, Charteris & Barnes, for releasing Tracy to us during this development. Tracy`s commitment and expertise was invaluable to this critical development. She flew up from Queenstown to assist in the layout and construction of the new VAT system, as well as the Beta testing, right up to the release date. Well done Tracy and your team, we are proud to be associated with you!!!

• What are the new requirements and how does it affect Revelation In a nutshell, the Receiver now reserves the right to demand more accurate backing documentation when querying a VAT201 submission. One of the effects is that Accountants have to now supply detailed ledger when submitting detail on a VAT query based on a VAT201 submission. Everyone has to step up their game, so to speak. It is no longer acceptable to have a single VAT total for a multiple item Invoice. Each item type on the invoice has to display its own VAT. You may even have Input and Output Vat on the same invoice, depending on the GL code used on the Invoice line (in the case of using Odd items and variable nominal analysis). In Order to accommodate the new VAT requirements, Revelation has made the following changes that you need to be aware of:
•The VAT Summary option to Ignore Past Period Journals have been amended

•The VAT Summary Report has been changed

•The VAT Transaction Report has been amended

•Nominal Journals have been amended

•GRN’s and Invoices have been amended.

•VAT Report – Removed the “Ignore Past Period Journals” option When posting Past Period Journals, Revelation understands that you cannot go back in time and pay the Receiver in the Past. For this reason we add the Past VAT to the current VAT. However, when looking at the TB, the VAT total did not look correct (Due to the Past Period VAT ) For this reason, we have always given the option to “Ignore any transactions dated EARLIER than this range”. This option has now been removed as past Period VAT total are now added as part of the Standard VAT Summary report under its own heading.

• VAT Summary Report Although the old VAT Summary Report has been one of the best on the market, the time has come to improve the trusty Report. Revelation now offers a “BOX” Report that will assist the user in completing the VAT 201 form that is even simpler to use than before. One of the techniques that modern auditors use, is to “tally” up the totals in the Income section of the TB and then to compare this with the VAT Report. In order to accommodate Auditors that use this method, we now add the TB Income totals at the bottom of the New Vat Summary Report. This can then be compared to the Capital Amount OUTPUT Vat. In theory, the two should always balance. To make sure this balancing act takes place, from now on VAT will no longer be calculated by “the process” (like Invoicing) to determine if it is falls into the Input or Output VAT accounts but rather by the GL or Nominal account number group it belongs to. From now on, all Income accounts (10001 to 19999) will automatically be processed against the OUTPUT VAT system, no matter the process, and All the Expense (20001 – 29999), Assets (30001 – 39999) and Liability (40001 – 49999) Accounts, will be processed against the INPUT VAT system. In this way, it does not matter if you do an Invoice into the Expense, Assets or Liability Accounts or a GRN into the Income Accounts, the TB to VAT report will always balance. The ONLY reason that they will not balance would be in the event of NON VAT transactions into the Income Ledgers (like Late Interest charged). If the TB and Output VAT totals do not balance for this reason, we have now introduced Exception Report to track these totals down. (See point 1.2.2. below). One other improvement on the new Summary report is the VAT Control account total that is now displayed at the very bottom of the report. If you have moved over to a new month without doing a month-end (hanging over), the VAT Control amount is then simulated. We highly recommend that you make sure that the VAT Control Account and the Reports Balance. IF not, a Journal should be passed into a holding account such as VAT Arrears (or something to that effect). Please consult your Auditors on this matter. Tip: For the users that hate change, we have however decided to leave the old Summary and Transaction reports in place.

•VAT Exception Reports To make life easier, we have now developed an elaborate Exceptions Report engine that will allow you to look for VAT anomalies. If the TB turnover and the Output VAT does not equal, you may print any of the exception report that have been added. These will include looking for Income accounts that did not attract VAT (such as Interest charged on overdue Debtor’s accounts).

• Other Exception reports available are:

•Vat entries where the Code is not the same as the GL Account Each GL account has a standard VAT code attached to it (when the account was created or edited). A Report can now be printed were the actual transaction vat was changed by the user during a VAT posting. This has proven a huge help to auditors as they will save precious time looking for these anomalies in order to either correct them or explain the variation.

•Where the VAT amount does not equal the normal VAT percentage A common mistake a lot of auditors and bookkeepers make is to simply calculate the VAT percentage from TB. Two problems here: Firstly not all sales/purchases attract VAT and secondly (in the case of importers) not all VAT is the same amount/percentage. This report will alert you to any amount that does not equal to the percentage of the default vat code it was produced under. In our example below the Import VAT was just over 70%

•Were a comparison is done against the Nominal transactions This report compares the VAT Transactions to the transactions in the Nominal Ledger and then prints a list where they do not agree.

• VAT Transaction Report The VAT Transaction list is probably the report that has been affected the most. This is due to the way that Revelation now handles VAT (based on SD14). In Revelation each Category can be programmed to have its own Sales, Cost-of-Sales and Stock Control Account (used the Nominal Wizard to assist in setting this up). From now on each of the Categories on an invoice will be reported separately on the Transaction Report. This means that a Single invoice will have multiple legs on the report, depending on the amount of categories on the Invoice. We have also done away with reporting the different VAT code entries next to each other. Instead, each VAT code will be reported under its own Header with that VAT codes Invoices. This will mean that a Single VAT Invoice, that has multiple VAT type, will be reported under multiple headers. Obviously the data that was processed under the old VAT engine (before you updated from the WEB) cannot accurately be reported under the new VAT report. For this reason we have built in an emulator engine that will attempt to back calculate such data to give the desired results on the new vat report. To distinguish these emulated figures from the new VAT figures, a “smaller as” sign “<” will be placed next to the figure on the VAT report. This should start disappearing once the new VAT Engine has been implemented and running for a time. Then only Past VAT Reports will still contain this marker.

•Nominal Journals One of the biggest problems we have had with the TB not balancing to the VAT Report is Journal postings into the Income and Expense accounts. The Journal that was posted without a VAT component would then Debit or Credit the TB, but would not influence the VAT Report (due to the absence of a VAT component). This would create the impression that the VAT report was incorrect if compared to the TB. (This was especially true for those Auditors that used our competitor product and was used to the way they handle Journals, TB’s and VAT). We now force each Journal into the Income and Expense account to have a VAT code. If the Journal is Zero rated, you should select the Zero rated code (usually 02). This is the only way that we can balance the TB to the VAT Report.

•VAT on Invoices / GRN’s As mentioned before, the Type of document processed no longer determines the VAT account involved. This is now driven by the GL Code. Only Income GL accounts will be posted (as a Debit or Credit) into the OUTPUT VAT Account. This means that even GRN’s into the income account (I can’t think of a reason why this would ever be done, but users often used to do this) will be reflected in the OUTPUT VAT Account. The same is true for Invoicing into the Expense, Assets and Liability Accounts. INPUT VAT will always be affected. For this reason, documents may from now on have OUTPUT & INPUT VAT on the same document. You may invoice items with the variable nominal analysis switched on and choose an expense account as the contra leg. This will result in such a dual VAT account scenario. In the case of an Invoice for instance, both VAT Accounts will still be credited (resulting in the same VAT Result as the old method) but will force the TB and VAT Reports to balance.

Placing all your Eggs in one Basket !!!
This age old saying never rang more true than today. Over the years the Revelation training team has always stressed the importance of this principle when dealing with the Pareto Analysis. We have a very large client operating at Lonmin. The recent events on the Lonmin Platinum Mines at Marikana, has once again highlighted this issue.

Fortunately, our client did NOT have all his eggs in one basket, but has several outlets throughout South Africa. But, this was a huge eye opener for us once more. Since our client is responsible for a very direct process on the mines, the recent spate of violence has caused the mines to come to a grinding halt. Our client’s turnover also came to a grinding halt. The problem is that their overheads did not.... A business has to be very careful when spreading the risk.

Pareto not only assists us in assessing our strong areas in the business, but one should also apply this principle to asses where the crunch could potentially be, if our Pareto A clients are not taken care of or, in the case of Lonmin, a sudden crises turns a very lucrative avenue into the "Acyls Heal" of your business. In this article, we explain how Pareto should be applied to monitor stock and stock control, but this process should also be applied to your clients and suppliers.

If one of your main suppliers goes out of business today, do you have an alternative, or is all your eggs in one basket. If your client was the operator on the Lonmin Mines, how negatively would this effect your own business...... Pareto Analysis (80/20 Principle) The Pareto principle, also known as the 80-20 rule, was suggested and developed by Business-management consultant Joseph M. Juran. He named after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, who observed in 1906 that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population; he developed the principle by observing that 20% of the pea pods in his garden contained 80% of the peas.

Applied in Business, Pareto analysis states that 80% of your business is generally generated by 20% of your clients. It further states, and this is our point of interest, that 80% of all a business sales are derived from 20% of your product. In Revelation these stock items are referred to as Pareto A Product. They should always be in stock. A good example of this would be your Asthma medication that you cannot live without, especially if you are suffering Asthma Attacks. If your local pharmacy does not stock them, you are out of there so fast; it would make their heads spin. Items that assist the “Pareto A” Product, but are not that vital, would be known as Pareto B Product. A good example again from the pharmacy would be the Vitamin Booster for your lungs. If the pharmacist can offer a good alternative, you will not be too unhappy. Promising an afternoon delivery of your first choice will really put your mind at ease. Pareto C Product are product that are nice to have, but will not stop business. The health foods in the last aisle would probably fall into this category. It is stock that you would expect to see in a pharmacy, but if you have run out, no one will persecute you. Just make sure they get stocked up within the next few days or even weeks. Pareto D Product would be the new cholesterol home test kit that you have some brochures on. If you could order that for Uncle Dan and let him know when it is in stock, he will be so grateful, “thank you young man, you know, I have been shopping here when your grandfather was still alive...” It is not going to put you out of business when you cannot deliver.

In order to make the Pareto Principle work for your business, make sure that your minimum and maximum levels are up to date and well maintained. (Take seasonal changes and market trends into consideration). You may class your Debtors & Creditors Accordingly.

Neil Armstrong Dies at 82
US astronaut Neil Armstrong, who took a giant leap for mankind when he became the first person to walk on the moon, has died at the age of 82, his family said on Saturday. Armstrong died following complications from heart-bypass surgery he underwent earlier this month, the family said in a statement, just two days after his birthday on August 5.

As commander of the Apollo 11 mission, Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon on July 20 1969. As he stepped on the dusty surface, Armstrong said: "“That`s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." Those words endure as one of the best known quotes in the English language. The Apollo 11 astronauts` euphoric moonwalk provided Americans with a sense of achievement in the space race with Cold War foe the Soviet Union and while Washington was engaged in a bloody war with the communists in Vietnam.

Neil Alden Armstrong was 38 years old at the time and even though he had fulfilled one of mankind`s age-old quests that placed him at the pinnacle of human achievement, he did not revel in his accomplishment. He even seemed frustrated by the acclaim it brought. "I guess we all like to be recognised not for one piece of fireworks but for the ledger of our daily work," Armstrong said in an interview on CBS`s 60 Minutes programme in 2005.

He once was asked how he felt knowing his footprints would likely stay on the moon`s surface for thousands of years. "I kind of hope that somebody goes up there one of these days and cleans them up," he said. You have once again taken a small step into the unknown for (a) man, but a giant leap for all mankind’s faith. We at Revelation salute you. You have, and always will be, an inspiration to us all.

Revelation Accounting Software has decided to replace the annual Dealer Seminar with a Provincial Client Seminar. It has been obvious to us that clients do not always get the immediate advantage of the Dealer Seminar’s as Dealers do not always get to see the clients on a regular basis.

As the Dealers will be present on the Client Seminar, we believe that this will be an idea opportunity for Client and Dealer to “get on the same page” so to speak. We have also invited our partner Product Companies to join us on the day. The day will be split up into both a Training as well as information session. You will also have the opportunity to post questions as well as see first-hand what the people look like that you deal with at Revelation.

The first Seminar will be held in Gauteng. Based on the success of this seminar, we will then roll it out to other provinces. The costs per delegate will be R 350.00 and you may register and pay by visiting the [TRAINING] tab on this web page. It will be a day to remember........ WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU INVITE YOUR AUDITOR or BOOKEEPER TO JOIN YOU ON THE DAY!!!

We have got your back-up
Revelation Accounting Software have recently announced that they have just launched their new Online Backup feature. This is where Revelation clients can make a backup of all their daily accounting activities on an off-site server, preserving all their data should their systems fail them.

“Some of out clients do thousands of transactions a day and we have faced numerous data loss issues from our clients side due to lightning, theft, viruses and various external factors which are beyond our control” says Vernon Shirley, CEO of Revelation Accounting. “Once data has been lost it could ruin a business.”

Revelation Accounting understand that they cannot control every environment in which their product is used and have devised this system where their clients can back up all their data daily in a safe and secure environment. Should any data loss occur – they have a backup of all their files which can be downloaded at any time.

The new look Revelation Accounting
The new look Revelation Accounting Recently at their Dealer Seminar Revelation Accounting launched their new look brand. “We thought that our brand needed to be given a face lift, the old jelly beans had served us well, and we wanted to get a new image in the marketplace as we felt our brand needed to compete on an even level.” Says Vernon Shirley CEO of Revelation Accounting.

“We employed the services of White Oak Advertising agency and asked them to come up with something dynamic that says `Out Of This World.” “Our brief was to create an image that looked modern and would be able to live with Revelation for at least the next 10 years and still look fresh.” Says Richard van Zyl, Creative Director of White Oak Advertising. “We toyed around with many looks and finaly settled on this one. We contacted NASA and asked them permission to use some of their images and they were very forthcoming.”

The new look makes use of crisp fonts and plays well with the use of silver and black giving Revelation an image that sets them apart from their competitors, yet with a very high-tech feel. It gives one the sense of wonder. “We had to produce a feeling of immenseness, and what is bigger than the universe itself? Not much.” Says van Zyl “We incorporated it into each package trying to give a feeling of scale as the package size increased.

I think we have achieved that.” Revelation Accounting now enters the market with a squeaky clean new look, a new range of products and a plethora of new features which certainly puts it in a league of its own when it comes to accounting packages in the South African market. “We are extremely pleased with the result and know it will see us well into the future.” adds Shirley.

Online Shopping Directly from your Accounting Package
Revelation Accounting has just launched their new Online Shop module where users can create an online shop, place their stock online and get online orders and sales directly from their accounting package. “Our goal here was to create an online environment where Revelation users can sell their goods online and keep track of their stock all in one place.” Says Vernon Shirley CEO of Revelation Accounting.

“We have tried to make it as easy as possible for retailers to use the online platforms to create a virtual shop and track their stock movements directly from their Revelation.” And what a revelation it is. This module certainly puts Revelation in a class of their own where all online sales are placed onto the platform and every aspect of their sales, packaging and delivery is monitored and controlled from one central point.

“What we tried to do is make Revelation more than just an accounting package, we have made it a complete business tool. “ Says Glen Pearce, Revelation`s Chief Ideas Man. “We have also written in several features like an appointments calendar, an SMS module and a touch-screen option which turns your accounting package into an integrated business management tool. We understand how in this environment businesses need new and innovative ways to turn a profit and we are trying to give our clients those options to improve their business success.”

The online tool is easy to use and very easy to set up giving any business an opportunity to sell their wares in an new and exciting channel. Any business who wishes to sell their stock online, Revelation is the answer to all your business needs. “We have always tried to be ahead of the curve as far as our competitors are concerned to provide our clients with the very best accounting package to date.

We might not be the biggest, but we are certainly aiming at being the most innovative.” adds Shirley. We are looking forward to see what else Revelation Accounting is going to bring to the world of accounts. Very exciting stuff.
