Upgrading to Later Versions

Important! To avoid possible data corruption issues, if you upgrade to a later version of Sage 300 or Sage 300c, you must install all released product updates for that version before activating your data. If you use Sage 300c web screens, you must also activate data for all company databases that use the same system database before signing in to web screens.
