Hi Experts,

I need some guidance to migrate from Sage 50 Payroll to Quick books Pro. What needs to be done? Is there any third party software that should be used. What steps to be undertaken. Alternatively if i could find some on to complete the task remotely it would be great.

I already know that in theory you should export all information from Sage to csv files. They should be converted to iif and then imported to Quick books. Unfortunately it does not work.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.

Have you looked into QODBC? If you can export Sage data to csv, you can then import that data into Microsoft Access and export it into QuickBooks using QODBC, an ODBC driver for QuickBooks.

QODBC uses SQL pass through queries to read/write between QuickBooks and Microsoft Access and in my opinion is easy to learn.

I believe Flexquarters still offers a free demo that you could use with some code to see if this method interests you.

You may want to look over some of the codes on VBQuick.com (shame on me - my own blog) to see if it's something you want to attempt. There is a link to a quick start tutorial to give you quick results and see how it works.

If you already know SQL, the hop to QODBC is a short one.

If you are not ready for a new learning curve, there must be someone out there who could do this for you.

The negatives would be the time involved in both the learning and implementation. However, you could then use QODBC in many different ways like I do. You may enjoy the flexibility and ability to write your own QuickBooks add-ons.

Geez, I sound like a commercial! But I use it every day and it really helps us in our business.

I'm sure a utility must exist to automate the entire migration but I am not aware of it. I am a carpenter with only a hammer (QODBC) so that is my solution to almost everything, lol.

Good luck to you and make sure to come back and tell us what your solution was when you find something that works for you. At least I will be interested to see what you find.
