Hi ALL-- I am new to Sage ACT and we are doing upgrade of many customers who has Sage ACT 2010 to Sage ACT 2012 PRO.
I would like to know the following:
1.When we are upgrading(From any Sage version below 11.0 to Sage version11.0) how is Sage Software identifying whether the database needs to be updated? Basically how will sage act determine the vesion of the database
2. What are the control tables that are updated when we do an upgradation(From any Sage version below 11.0 to Sage version11.0)?
The reason for query is that when we were doing the upgrade process one of my colleagues accidently copied a database from one machine(ACT 8.0) to his machine(which has ACT 2012) and clicked the .pad file(With out taking a back up and restoring it from ACT 8.0 machine). Upgrade started and stopped immediately with an error message. When we checked the copied .pad file it has the machine name(with ACT 8.0). When we went to machine(with ACT 8.0) and tried opening it, it was showing an error message and not allowing the user to enter.
We then had to restore database from the latest back and installed it in ACT 8. machine.
