A software defect (bug) is an error or flaw or condition where the program is not doing what it was designed to do. A bug does not include a difference of opinion or the absence of a feature or capability.


  • A bug might be an error screen. In Total Office Manager this is usually a form with a predominantly yellow background.
  • A bug may also be a mathematical error on a report or a form.
  • A typographical error or formatting issue can be considered a bug.
