how-to migrate myob accounting data to openerp 7?

on 11/26/13, 9:29 PM 2,009 views

Hi community,

Is there any available tool in launchpad which can enable myob accounting migration to openerp 7?

Or do you use ETL or something similar to make this happen?

We are moving our current data in myob, not too big but still require some kind of automation. Any recommendation to get started? Thanks.

I have the same consideration, moving from MYOB Plus v.8.  It is my conclusion presently (FYI) to cut-over at end of accounting period, migrating only account definitions and starting balances, leaving transactional data behind.

I am planning on migrating from MYOB accounting plus v13 for mac (around 2004 !) - and know of nothing to help with the import process, apart from good old excel of course. Doing the transfer at the end of the accounting period is a very sensible thing to do.

It is standard ERP practice to cut-over at end of accounting period and only migrate what is necessary moving forward. Migrating historic data is usually a huge headache and often leeds to troubles. I'd go with Jeff suggestion.
