The SSS LMS (Loan Management System) Program is a software program produced by SSS for the employers to easily manage their employee’s loans.
The SSS LMS program is very helpful because it provides you, first, the amount of employee’s monthly loan payable to be paid to the SSS, and second, to easily generate the monthly contribution report to be filed to the SSS.
Upon using the LMS, you may experience some errors. In this article, we will enumerate the most common errors in SSS LMS Program and we have provided solutions to repair the errors. We hope that it will help you save some time in figuring out the solutions to these common problems.
Below here are the common errors that you might encounter in the SSS LMS:
Note: Make sure that you are using the latest version of the SSS LMS Program.
Not a Valid Win32 Application Error
This error is rare and you usually get this error when installing the application.
The file lmstd.exe is actually just a self-extracting zip file. When you open that file, it will just extract its content to the selected location. If you are getting the “Not a valid win32 Application Error”, you can easily extract it using 7-zip which can be downloaded here for free.
After you downloaded and installed 7-zip, just right click the lmstd.exe file and choose 7-zip -> Extract to here. After extracting the contents of the file, go to the new lmstd folder and open SSS_LMS.exe to begin using the program.
Invalid Loan Date Error
This error is usually encountered when you are adding an employee file particularly in the item Date Granted (mmddyy). It is asking for date value in the format of mmddyy but if you put the date in that format, the SSS LMS program will not accept it and it will show an error upon saving.
To resolve this error, first thing is you need to check if you really entered the date in the correct format. The mm is for the month in numerical format with leading zero. For example the month of February should be inputted as 02 and not just 2. The dd means day and the yy means the last two digits of the year. For example the date February 14, 2012 should be inputted as 021412.
If you get the error when saving a new employee file, what you need to do is to click the Date Granted (mmddyy) box again and press enter. After pressing the Enter key of your keyboard, the SSS LMS program will reformat your date into mm/dd/yyyy. The next time you encode in the Date Granted box, just remember to press Enter key after, this was explained in their user manual.
Invalid SSS Number Entered Error
This error is usually encountered when you are adding an employee file particularly in the item SSS Number.
First, you need to check if you really entered the correct SSS Number of the employee. Just put the SSS number without any formatting.
