3. Installing Adapt Uploader

After adding a customer's migration information to the MYOB Adapt online portal, you need to download Adapt Uploader.

Adapt Uploader extracts data from your customer's source product and adds it to the Adapt staging database. This database is the connector between your customer's new MYOB Advanced site and Adapt Desktop, which you'll use to edit your customer's data.

You can extract data as many times as many times as you need throughout a migration. 

(Payroll migrations only) Install the OLEDB driver

For payroll migrations, you need to install an OLEDB driver for Visual FoxPro. Install this to the computer that you’ll use to work on the migration. You’ll also need to install Adapt Uploader to the same computer.

This ensures that Adapt Uploader and Adapt Desktop work correctly.

  1. Log in to the MYOB Adapt online portal.

  2. On the left, click Downloads. The Files to Download page opens.

  3. Click vfpoledb.exe to download the Visual FoxPro OLEDB driver.

    To prevent errors when using this file, make sure that the name of the file you downloaded matches the name on the MYOB Adapt online portal. For example, if you've previously downloaded the Adapt Uploader file, it might be named vfpoledb (1).exe. In that case, you should rename it to vfpoledb.exe.

  4. Open the vfpoledb.exe file.

  5. Follow the prompts to install the Visual FoxPro OLEDB driver.
