Did you know that if you upgrade from Vantage 8.03.409C to Epicor 9.05.700,
you DO NOT have to upgrade to 9.04?? You can go directly to 9.05!

If that is true, that is AWESOME. Could of used that about 6 months ago!

Just heard that on their Tools and Frameworks webcast...

Clive,



You are correct regarding not being able to download it from EPICweb. The
official name is ERP Data Upgrade Utility.



What Is It?



Epicor�s ERP Data Upgrade Utility moves data from Vantage 8.03 to Epicor
9.05.



Why Is It Important?



Converting sizeable databases for an upgrade can be a time consuming and
complex task, especially when it involves upgrading through two major
releases (Epicor 9.04.and 9.05). With this new utility, users can reduce
the significant time it normally takes to move data from Vantage 8.03 to
Epicor 9.05. The utility eliminates the need to install and configure
Epicor 9.04 as an intermediate, temporary waypoint during the efficient
execution of the necessary data conversion processes. This is a time
saving advantage over the old standard data conversion process. The
utility ensures the data is mapped properly into the latest version of
Epicor 9 and runs key protocols quickly and simultaneously.



Availability



Customers contact customer support to have this free utility sent to them.



Regards,
Scott

As my CAM is on training in the USA, so hard to contact, I was wondering if
anyone has had any dealings with the above ?.

I've been informed that it's now GA but I don't believe that you can freely
download it from EpicWeb ?. Also does anyone know what the tool is actually
called ?.

Thanks.

I believe that option was a recent development.. we did the journey to 9.04... still in testing I'm sure we are going to do the straight to 700 option final go around.
