I'm hoping someone can help me with this. We want to upgrade and update our sage accounts software to Version 2017, however, we still use Sage act too. The version we use is Sage Act! Premium 2012 Version 126.96.36.199.
Can someone please confirm if the upgrade will be fine? Or if we need to update the version of Sage act we are using.
If someone knows more about this and let me know if it will be okay or what I need to do, I will be very grateful.
Thank you in advance!

I am not an expert but... Maybe It is not compatible, even if you upgrade your Act! version.
Anyway I suggest you ask directly by the phone number UK: 0845-268-0220 (Calls cost 5p per minute plus your phone company's access charge)

Thank you for your reply! It's appreciated a lot. We currently use Sage 50 Accounts Version 188.8.131.52 with Sage Ac! Premium 2012 Version 184.108.40.206, which according to your chart we shouldn't be able to do already.
I did try to call them before posting on this, but Swiftpage wanted us to sign up for a minimum of 30 days for support in order to help with this one technical question.
We need to upgrade our Sage accounts to a higher version, but need to use Act too.
I'll try calling again. I need a definitive answer from someone. Thank you for getting back to me with this information though Juan!

The connectivity between ACT! and the Sage accounting software was always done by Sage not ACT!. You would need to contact Sage to find out if they have a connection to the later versions of the ACT! program. I don't believe they do but I think there may be a third party link available.

Swiftpage UK make reference to a third party accounting link for Act! and Sage accounting software for UK and there are newer Swiftpage knowledge base articles that reference that product . I suggest you contact the UK office.

You should contact AlphaLogix at http://www.alphalogix.co.uk/alpha-software/alpha-link-for-act.aspx and ask about AlphaLink for Sage 50 Accounts.

Maybe both can be updated ... Or just one ... but is not guaranteed that the integration between both solutions continues...
Before any changes it is important to back up the database of both solutions.
