As far as I know:
The Canadian software was based on Simply Accounting
The U.S. software was based on Peachtree
The U.K. software was based on Sage Line 50
The innards of the three products have little in common because they were built by separate companies. Similarities are more evolutionary convergence than shared ancestor.
Thank you - unfortunately this has a VERY high price tag and no information at all without registering... All I want is to build an addon for internal use here to link one system to another.
The Sage 50 Canadian software has had a free SDK for some years, basic import functionality built in, and a read / write ODBC interface.
Except for a few moderators from Sage Software, this forum is composed of Canadian users of Sage 50, so any knowledge. (I have never worked for Sage.) and I have no more personal knowledge of the U.K. software than I have of the traffic on the M1
I have had good success shovelling data into other closed software by using AutoHotKey, sending generated keystrokes and mouse movements through the interface as a user would.
hehe, sorry! :) all the UK sites were migrated over here - annoying losing a lot of votes on ideas and other history... still finding my way around...... just saw the topic about SDK as a related article from the dev site and didn't see this was the Canadian group!
