Hi All,

We have in house crm/billing program made in vb.net which feeds in to sage 2011 via a csv file.

What I'm trying to do is connect in to sage database to get the account balances.

Is there anyway to do this without buy the sage developer pack?

Cheer

You shouldn't need to. I assume you are referring to Sage ACT!, yes? This article (from the Sage knowledgebase) explains how to connect directly to the database as an ODBC connection. (This you can use from Excel or Crystal Reports or SQL Server Management Studio).

You should be able to connect to it from Visual Studio that way too. VS supports ODBC connections.

If you mean sage ACT! 2011, the developers kit is free.
Also, the ODBC connection is only if you have the Premium edition, but the OLEDB connection is usually easier.

No Sage Accounts 2011, will this still work?

I don't think so.... for that, you might try the free Sdata interface - http://sdata.sage.com/

Yes there is

I sell a 3rd party integration product that can retrieve balances, (it can also post your invoices into sage in background/real time into the invoicing module)
