Can I share my cashbook across a network?
Cashbook Complete can be installed on a network, and can be used by more than one person at a time. By having it on a File Server, you could also take advantage of the servers regular backups. To install it on a network, you need to:-
- Install the software on each computer as though it is going to work locally
- Copy your Cashbook data file (eg. MyCompany.CB) to a folder on your file server
- Select “Open Cashbook” from the “File” menu, and enter the folder where the cashbook(s) resides
- Go into the Setup Wizard (second page) and change the “Data File Folder” to the same path
Please note that if you have an unreliable network, your data file may become corrupted. For this reason, it’s best to have a hard-wired network, not a wifi network.
