Version 2023 for Sage 50 has been released. The first thing to consider is, if one of these situations applies to you, then you’ll need to hold off upgrading until you are ready.
- If you’ve got custom reports that you have written by using Sage Intelligence Reporting, do not upgrade them yet. Sage Intelligence Reporting isn’t part of and will not integrate into conjunction with Sage 50 2023. Therefore, do not upgrade until you the reports have been recreated in a different tool for reporting. Sage recommends XLGL from Logicim for possible replacement.
- Version 2023 conflicts with prior versions of Sage 50. If you’re among the few users that need to run several versions that are compatible with Sage 50 US Peachtree, then you’ll have to install Version 2023 on a separate computer or a virtual PC.
