DSStudio Setup for Sage 50 and Peachtree Accounting

How to configure DSStudio Reporting with Sage 50 and Peachtree Accounting Software

By default, Sage 50 and Peachtree Accounting Software does not allow outside programs to access your Company's data.  Setting up Data Access to the outside world is done per company.  If you have multiple Company's and wish to use DSStudio Reports with them, you will need to perform this setup for each Company.

Setting up Data Access only allows programs to read your Company data, no changes to data are allowed.  This provides you with security that your data will not be altered by anyone.

Wordage and screenshots may be slightly different depending upon the version of Sage 50 or Peachtree Account you have.  

Open up the Company that you wish to allow Sage 50 or Peachtree Accounting to have access to:

  • From the Maintenance Menu, select User and Set Up Security.
  • If you receive the message "If two or more users have the....." click OK to continue.  (You may wish to check the "Do not display this message again." checkbox)
  • Click on the Data Access/Crystal Reports Tab on the top of the window.
  • In the "Access Form Outside Sage 50" area, select "With the following login information"
  • The user ID is fixed with "Peachtree" this cannot be changed.
  • Click the "Change " button to enter a password.  This password is limited to 8 characters and must contain both alphabetic characters (A-Z, a-z) and numerals (0-9).  We recommend using: Peachtr1
  • Write this down for later use.  You will need it when you set up your reports to work with this company.
  • Click the "Close" button at the bottom.
