Hi everyone,

I have a problem here, I am currently trying to pull out the data of a dos type accpac to convert or be read by windows version accpac.. How will this be possible or what type of software can i use? I heard of a sage accpac to be patch onto windows version that can read dos accpac? But I am not willing to spend a huge amount of money to do this type of process.. Please help

Sage Accpac is the Windows version of Accpac.  If you want to convert, you would need to have access to Sage Accpac 5.3 or earlier.  This has a conversion utility built in.  Once converted, you could then easily convert from version 5.3 to 5.6 (current version).  If you're just looking to extract data, the simplest method is to use a combination of exporting and printing to file from inside the Accpac Plus application.

Good luck!
