I’m upgrading a Premier v19.15 company file to 2018.4.1.
I installed the AccountRight 2018 SE version on a client station, as wanted the flexibility to share and test the file on the LAN.
I created a copy of the original file to test the upgrade first.
I placed the copy in the directory “C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB\My AccountRight Files\”.
I optimised and verified the file prior to upgrade.
I confirmed logon using the administrator user ID and password, prior to upgrade.
I ran AccountRight 2018 SE and chose to upgrade the above file Offline.
After entering the same Administrator password I received the message “Error, Incorrect User ID or Password, Please try again”.
Can you please assist.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am not clear where exactly you are getting this error, if it is at the commencement of the upgrade, this is unusual, ensure Administrator is typed correctly.
If it is when you try to open the upgraded file, bear in mind that the password in AR2018 is case sensitive, unlike v19. The other thing is the length of the password might be the issue. In v19 the password limit is 11 characters, however you can enter a longer password, MYOB v19 will simply ignore the extra character you type. For example say you enter 123456789012345 (15 characters) as the password in v19. Everytime you log in and enter 123456789012345, MYOB simply ignores the last 4 characters and will let you in. Also if you enter just 12345678901, MYOB will let you in. So once you upgrade to AR2018, if your password was greater than 11 characters, try entering just the first 11.
Let us know how you get on with this.
The password was longer than 11 chars, I entered only the first 11 and the migration proceeded.
All the best for the New Year.
