Invalid URI

Hello all, I recently received a new laptop and our IT person has updated as much as he is able but he is not a MYOB specialist and we are battling to sort out one last issue.

When I do a wage run it used to upload the journal into MYOB for me but now I get the message "Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined." and the journal does not upload into MYOB automatically as it used to do. I don't know how to get Payroll talking to MYOB again.

Any asssitance would be appreciated please. 

Cheers Heather
