Is SAGE 50 using SQLSERVER ?

For some reason the powers that be in Sage have decided to us Sage 50 as a name for lots of different accounting systems and this has led to a lot of confusion.

The UK version is sold in UK Eire, Malta, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

It does get used in other parts of the world (eg China France) but it is not actively marketed.

This forum is for questions relating to the non UK versions.

Hi can I ask . Is sage 50 is using SQL SERVER database ? They give us username and password for the database but they don't tell if what database did they use for the system.


Thank you in advance.

Sage uses Structured Query Language (SQL) to talk to the database most databases do this.

SQL is a Standards based language for communicating with databases.

An SQL database in common parlance is a database where there is a separate database server, this could be any one of a number of SQL servers eg Oracle, Pervasive, MySQL or Microsofts implementation which is called Sequel or MSSQL it has deviated from the standard and it is questionable as to if it is a SQL database any more.

Why do you want to know the technology behind the product are you looking to integrate, if so you need to use the SDK.
