Sage 50 SQL


Many companies who use Sage 50 as their accounting software would like to use their data in an SQL format, whether it's for enhanced reporting, running detailed queries or to enable them to link to other databases and applications. 

Using an SQL database for Sage can help your business get more out of your accounts data, especially if you have large amounts of records and transactions. Users can find useful bits of information and present this in a more compelling and meaningful way.

Our product Sage2SQL converts your Sage 50 data into a structured query language database format which can then be used in conjunction with other applications such as Microsoft's Power BI application to create powerful dashboards, charts and reports.

Does Sage 50 use SQL?


Does Sage 50 does use SQL as its core database? Unfortunately, not, instead Sage uses a flat file proprietary database which has limits on the number of transactions you can store, uses typically report slower performance if you have large volumes of data.  This can create challenges for your business if you want to run advanced queries, consolidate information or run detailed reports on your accounts data.

Microsoft's Structured Query Language is a popular database used by many businesses and applications, it helps companies to better manage their data and use it to retrieve, sort, report on and update key information.

Sage2SQL will extract all data from the key tables in Sage 50 and puts this into an SQL database format, allowing greater reporting, analysis and the possibility of linking to other data sources within your organisation.
