you should export all your information from SAGE into a CSV file. You can then change or add column headers so that openERP automatically knows what column to put the data in. Each data type needs to be put in separate CSVs.
For instance - you cannot import partners and sales orders at the same time. you need to upload the partners, then map the ID created in openERP to the partner field in openERP to the sales order CSV you are uploading.
This is pretty simple, but it is not an instant process, you should take some time to learn exactly what the columns in openERP do. Don't assume a column name means what you think it means or that SAGE will export all the columns you need to get your data into openERP seemlessly. Like if you have accounting installed, you must import the partners with the proper AR and AP accounts, or you will be prompted to add that information manually later.
Many partners also offer migration services. It might be worth your time to get a quote from some experienced in migration.
