importing shiresystems safety1st plus database

Postby Gary Boag » Mon Jan 26, 2015 12:48 pm

Good morning,

We have just recently bought PATGuard 3 software and are using it with a newly created database. Prior to this we used Shire Systems Safety1st + software for our PAT testing database. Is it possible to import the Safety1st + database into the PATGuard 3 system? The old database is an 8Mb Microsoft Access database.
Many thanks for your help,

Hi Gary Boag

You cannot directly import the database into PATGuard 3. What you need to do is import it into PATGuard 2 and then open up the PATGuard 2 database in PATGuard 3. If you do not have access to PATGuard 2 please contact our technical support on and they will send you a trial.
Thanks and kind regards
