About Software Conversion

exclaimThis process should only be run as instructed by a ManageMore conversion programmer.

Q & A - Software Conversion

Q01.   I have just run the Software Conversion process. All of my customers that have balances now have an invoice with a line item of 'Balance Adjustment' on their account.
A01.   This balance adjustment transaction is created by the conversion process to provide a proper accounting method of justifying the customers' balances.

Q02.   I am having trouble downloading the converted data from the Intellisoft FTP servers.
A02.   One of the more frequent causes of being unable to download conversion data from Intellisoft's FTP servers is improper router/proxy server/firewall configuration. Port 21, which is the standard FTP port, must be open. Your system administrator should be able to configure this correctly.

Q03.   I don't see my question here. Where else can I get information?
