View Full Version : converting from PCA 12 for Windows.

I'm trying to convert to Premium 2004 from PCA for Windows version 12.

I have 3 companies to convert.

I'm following the conversion guide from the PT website to the letter however I am running into a snag. After I create the company in Premium and then begin the import it never asks for the default a/r a/p link accounts as the conversion guide says it will. It skips straight to the Intial Payroll Field Setup screen.

Any idea why this might be happening?

I'm not sure why you are trying to "import" it (I haven't read the instructions you talk about...).

When I converted, I just created a dummy company and then did a "Restore" into it with my old version PT Company. It automatically runs the conversion routine then.

Our old version of Peachtree is Peachtree Classic Accounting for Dos/Windows aka PCA.

When upgrading to anything newer you have to export the data from the old Peachtree using a utility provided by Best Software and then using the import PCA DOS function provided in PT Premium bring the data in.

My problem is that during this conversion it skips a step mentioned in the conversion guide.

sounds like a file is missing. Which ones were created?
