What type of database does Sage 50 Accounts 2014 (UK version) use? All I've been told it's a 'flat file', is it Pervasive as suggested by the Sage FAQ's?

What type of database does Sage 50 Accounts Hosted use?

Not sure about the UK version, but I'd suspect PSQL is your answer.  You can check the database server for the presence of the process NTDBSMGR or W3DBSMGR.  If so, then you have the PSQL engine.  

I cannot answer the "hosted" question directly, but I would assume it is the same?

The UK version of sage 50 uses a proprietary database.

The hosted versions are all the desktop versions running on terminal servers.

There are several hosted suppliers some allow other software to run, some do not.

The database can be read externally using ODBC if you want to write to the database then you need to use the SDK or a third party tool, the only hosting provider that offers a third party tools is Online50 if you run your own terminal server or have a provider that gives you admin access then you can run what you like including the SDK.

I believe it's based on Pervasive® 10.20
Sage 100 uses SQL
