There are a lot of old Best/Sage FAS users out there that have never kept up with their Sage Support annual maintenance. This tends to be an issue when they decide to get their data back into the Sage FAS Asset Accounting solution – 3 years or so later.
The problem is that you can’t just take your current (let me just throw a version out there) data that is stuck in a FAS time warp of v2001.1, install new version of Sage FAS 2009.1.1 and roll with it. Their will be no wa-la! You need to take that data through – what we call – a version schema upgrade. To do this, you need all (or at least most) of the versions in between then and now. Trouble with is, Sage only provides v2007.1 and newer to support members.
Good news! Paragon Systems can assist you with your data schema upgrade for a nominal fee. Yes, we are such Sage FAS nerds (sshhhhhh) that we have the complete Best/Sage FAS library from v98.1 (OMG). You NEED help… we CAN help.
It’s important to take your data through this process to ensure all data tables are properly updated and restored to current version. If you don’t do this, you can cause serious corruption to your critical fixed asset data. Yikes! Don’t mess with it… let the Pro’s take care of it.
