If I upgrade my software, will it transfer my database into the new software?
Yes, when upgrading yoursoftware the upgrade process will automatically transfer your database into the new software. When restoring a database from old software to a newer version the new software will convert your database to be compatible with the new software. There is a limit to this however. If the old software is older than MSAS 2008 it will require assistance from technical support to bring your database up to where it will work with the new software.
