SAI BACKUP PROCEDURE

August 10, 2010

Only the BXDATA folder (found in the Sage Accpac root directory) needs to be backed up as this stores all the Pervasive and/or SQL Excel report templates as well as the Alchemex.svd file, which contains all the report and connection properties that relate to the installation.

To use the standard SAI backup facility, from within the Connector or Report Manager, click on File in the menu > Back up Metadata & Templates and choose a file name for your backup. SAI will create a .cab file (compressed file) that consists of all your SAI Excel report templates and metadata (alchemex.svd) which is required to restore your SAI installation to its former state.

To restore your SAI installation to its former state, reinstall SAI from the DVD, and extract the contents of your backup file (*.cab) to the SAI BXDATA folder, typically found in C:\Sage Software\Sage Accpac\BXDATA
