Converting a PGdebt 5 creditor database to PGdebt 8 format
However all is not lost, we can still convert this for you. All that is necessary is to send us the database files so that we can convert them and return them to you, with instructions.
BEFORE installing PG8, please make the PG5 sync disc. Instructions are in the PG5 manual, but the procedure is to:
1. Go to Options/supervisor/sync
2. Place a new floppy in drive A
3. Click the Make Synch disc button
4. When finished remove the floppy and send it to PG Computing. Please pack it very securely many floppies are damaged in the post.
We will locate the database, convert it and return to you with instructions.
There is no confidential or client information on the sync disc.
Once you have made the synch disc in PG5 you may upgrade to PG8, but any synch disc made by PG8 will not be any use for this purpose.
This can be done before or after installing PG8
