Creating a New Network Database

Christopher H Updated by Christopher H

Customers who have purchased a Network License can switch the software between Single-User mode and Network mode. When the software is running in Network mode, client data can be stored on a network server and shared with other users on the network.

To create a new database in a shared network location follow the steps below.

  1. From the main menu select Tools > Options.
  2. An Options window will be displayed. Select General section.
  3. If Application Mode is set to Single-User, set Application Mode to Network.
  4. If Application Mode is set to Network, click the Edit button then go to step 5.
  5. A Network Database Location window will be displayed, select Create A New Database.
  6. Using the Folder Browser, choose the network folder to use for data storage.
    If needed use the Make New Folder button to add a new folder(s).
  7. Click the Create Database button.
  8. A new database and associated folders will be created.
  9. The software will automatically close.
  10. Restart the software.
  11. Client data is now being used from the network location selected in step 6.
