Re: Restoring Sage back up file

All the back files that was created is on that other machine even while you may think its on that disk in theory YES but physically NO. Thats why you got this: Error message keeps coming up which is: programfiles\sage\accounts\company.001attachments\nominal\1200\statements\288.pdf Just one more try the disk you used look on it if it has the 288.pdf file you may be able to read it from the PDF software and then recreate it in the sage financial creater?

WE have upgraded a sage program on to new computer. However we cannot restore the backup due to an "unsupported version "error

hi dmatharu667
this happens when you take a backup of a company that has a accdata folder in the accdata folder and it reports version as v9. To correct this go to data directory go into accdata directory and in that director move or delete the second accdata directory, repeat your backup and it should then restore perfectly

I am trying to change the financial year end date in Sage Instant Accounts??

You can only do this is Sage 50 but you can get it changed by someone who has Sage 50 with the same version number as your instant. They can back up their data restore your date change the year and then backup and you can restore it on your computer and they can restore their data. NB they must be on exactly the same version.

I want to transfer all sate data from my old laptop to my new PC, I have already installed the hardware on the new PC

Sage has an EXPORT function that you can use to transfer data.

You could also copy the daily files from the storage folder to a USB drive

O the new machine use the IMPORT function to import a backup of the files or use the folder options to get data from the USB drive to set up a new company profile which would use your old data to set up a new copy of SAGE with your exisying information.

The prefered option is IMPORT / EXPORT

Do you use Sage financial software? The only instance I could find about a similar-named file was ACCDATA\HEADER.DTA in Sage.

If so, be sure that the Sage product is shut down first. The program probably has the file opened for exclusive use, meaning no other program (such as your backup program) can read it. Backing up the file to another hard drive probably allows the file to be closed temporarily, allowing it to be read.

Financial Year in Sage

If you are using sage 50 or Sage instant

the financial year can be changed in settings and financial year and click change button. However this is not available in all levels. It sounds if your backup may be out of date.

Restoring files from the database

I suggest you use the Enterprise manager (gui tool to manage SQL).
Restoring a single table is not an option.
You can however restore a file or filegroup.
Make sure to backup before you start and NOT to restore database to its original name or original file location, to avoid acidents.
Normally you will have databases with only 2 files: the data at its Primary file group, and log file.
You may wish to create a new file group and move tables to the new group by recreating them there and exporting data from old table to new table. Then recreate indexes. This may prove to be complex as all tables and indexes have unique names and can't coexist with exact duplicate of them.

oh yea..... did I say backup?
well just in case backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup
but dont overwrite that backup
