Hello Louise Wild, Thanks for reaching out! You'll want to launch your company data file in the 2019 Accountant's Edition version of Sage 50 to check that the file is formatted for the Pro edition. The bottom right of the main Sage 50 CA screen tells you the file format. See KB 16077 for further details regarding data that is upgraded to a higher edition.Hope this helps!Erzsi
New to Sage and would like to confirm that Sage 50 Pro Accounting 2020 will be compatible with Sage 50 Accountant Edition 2019. Thanks.
Thanks Farzan Ali Khan, happy new year to you too!
Season's Greetings and Happy New Year to all of you and looking forward to 2020. Thank you.
I download only the 2019 and 2020 because I still have the 2019 version of Sage 50 Premium Accounting Canadian Edition and looking forward to download the 2020 version of Sage 50 Premium Accounting Canadian Edition. Thank you.
