Upgrade of Vantage from 5.10.135 to 5.2

We are getting ready to do the same thing. Some of the changes in
functionality need to be addressed before you change versions. Depending on
what you do some of the modules are quite different. I set up 5.2 on a test
server and practiced backing up and upgrading my live 5.1 database. Its
good practice and lets the users train on a database with real info. It is
also a good test of your backup procedures.

Might be wise to have epicor or one of the list's consulting groups walk you
thru the first one. The money spent will save a lot of down time while you
get confortable. Depends on what modules you have and how many report buider
reports how many custom crystal forms or crystal reports and a lot of land
mines to learn over time.

I have never done a upgrade of this software and the individual that
did is no longer here. I just want to make sure that I am doing
everything I possibly can to make sure that after it is done
everything runs smoothly for the office and plant. What should I be
looking out for and what advice and tips can you give me for a first
timer.
