MYOB live file


Can someone please tell me, do all MYOB versions have the file extension myo or dat for the live file or are there versions that have another file extension again.

Is there a resource somewhere that may list which versions have which extension?

Hi Kaitlyn,


MYOB AccountRight, Accounting, Business Basics and FirstAccounts files are all .dat or .myo files - it was around V13 or V14 that the extension in the Accounting files changed from .dat to .myo.
