~ Be sure that you are running BusinessPLUS through Internet Explorer.  To verify go to Tools, Internet Options, Programs, then under Default Browser make certain that the box is check marked under Internet Explorer default browser (states: tell me if Internet Explorer is not my default browser).  BusinessPLUS is not compatible with Firefox or Google Chrome and will not run properly if those programs and / or streaming websites are running at the same time.  

~ When placing orders, make certain that your security code (Sec. Cd.) is filled in properly.  Your security code is generally your three digit site number with an A, C, G or 0 added to the number, depending on the order.  Make sure you are using the correct code as it directly affects the order routing process.  For a list of codes, click on the blue box next to the Sec. Cd and a drop down list should appear.
