What happens during an MYOB Accounting Software Upgrade?

Steps To Be Taken Before You Do An Upgrade

An MYOB Accounting software upgrade is implemented to ensure your company enjoys the benefits of a feature upgrade as mentioned in our previous post. All users currently using the software will have to log off from the software and do a data backup to protect your latest data. This should be carried out before an upgrade takes place. In addition,  all MYOB users are to make sure that the earlier data file that is going to be upgraded is not corrupted, otherwise it will not be possible to upgrade the data file.

It does not matter at which point of the financial year the upgrade is being implemented as this would not affect the upgrade process in any way.

A computer or terminal server with a high processing speed would be recommended in order to upgrade the data files at a much faster speed. Also, do not run any other RAM intensive applications  at the same time so as to not interrupt or slow down the upgrade process.
