Illegal address for field ‘FICA/Med Add Tax Rate in script ‘941_Generate’
This error has been coming up lately in version GP2010. The solution has been to rename the Forms.dic. So, you need to export any modified forms to a package file. Rename your Forms dictionary and then import the package file, thereby creating a new Forms dictionary.
While I have only seen the forms dictionary needing to be renamed, start with renaming both the forms and reports dictionaries and then add them back one at a time. Or, just export all of your modifications, rename all of the forms and reports dictionaries and then import everything back in.
Update! Robert said that he ran into similar issue when applying the GP2010 year end tax update. His error message was:
Unhandled script exception: Illegal address for field 'Medicare Wages and Tips Additional in script '941_Generate'. Script terminated.
He said this solution solved that problem too!
Microsoft has acknowledged this is an issue, but has not determined the exact reason.
Until next post!
