Moving database and configuration from 8.82 to 9.0 PL2


Hello All,


I recently installed SAP Business One 9.0 PL2 with SQL Server 2012 Express and Win 2008 R2. I have a development / test machine which is configured on another server with SAP Business One 8.8x, SQL Server 2008 Express and Win 2008 R2.


I want to copy 2 companies with their databases and configurations from SAP Business One 8.8x to 9.0 PL2. Is it possible to do so? If so, would appreciate guidance.

Options tried:

I have tried joining / connecting to company on B1 8.8x from B1 9 and it gave me an error for version difference.

I've also tried backing up 8.8x db and restoring it in B1 9 but I got the same error when logging in. No luck.

Need help.
