Now, we will discuss about migrating masters into Sage 100 ERP. Unlike Sage 50 US (Peachtree) every vendor defined in Sage Accpac ERP™ needs to have a vendor code. In migration process GUMU allows you to generate vendor codes for Vendors using three methods:

  1. Auto Number: Numeric vendor numbers automatically gets generated using a user defined starting number and a user defined increment.
    Say for e.g. if you want to assign fist vendor code as 1000 and next code should get generated by 10 then it would look like as 1010, 1020 and so on.
  2. Company Initials: Vendor numbers are generated using first three initials of company name and next three characters will be a number.
    For example code for “Bank of America” will be BA001 and “Bank of Australia” will be BA002.
  3. Company Name: Vendor numbers are generated using first N (N is user defined value) characters of company name. For example code for “Bank of America” will be “BAN001” and “Bank of Australia” will be “BAN002” if user selected first 3 characters of company name to be used.
  4. Peachtree Vendor ID: Vendor numbers are generated as it exist in Sage 50 US (Peachtree) company data.

Note: As per the Sage 300 standard functionality it would allow to enter only up to 12 characters for vendor code.

In this way, Sage 50 US Vendor masters is migrated into target Sage 300 ERP company database. In our Next Blog we will discuss about another method of generating Vendor Number.
