Hi,
I am trying to map some accounts receivables fields to export data from. Unfortunately, I do not have the data dictionary of that version(6.1 DOS version)! I have only Accpac ERP 5.3 to 5.6 version of AOM. Can someone help me find it?
Thanks !

There is no such thang as a DOS data dictionary.

Sorry for the terminology Ettienne.  
Where can I find a list of database files and fields; like the customer, invoice, payment and user (employee: sales person or collection agent) tables?
Thanks!

There was never a list published, you could generate them if you had Dynaview or you could look at the field names using Quik Reports. Your options are very limited to non existent, see what you can export and you should see a list of field names there.

You're also up against a proprietary database that can't easily be read from.  

There was an ODBC driver that isn't available any more.  

As previously mentioned Dynaview and Quik Reports can be used to export.  

Quik Reports may still be available from Softrak Systems if you ask nicely.  The Adagio ODBC might work for you as well.

Report Master is/was another report writer for DOS.
