Accessing EasyACCT data from the network

by Intuit EasyACCT 2023 Updated 6 months ago

The recommended configuration for EasyACCT in a network environment is to load the program to the C: drive on each workstation as a standalone program.

  • The company data files can then be shared from a dedicated server or networked computer in a peer-to-peer network.
    • Data shared from a network source must be accessible at every workstation.
      • The computer sharing the data must be mapped as a drive letter for the computer accessing the data.
    • Permissions for the shared drive must be granted by your network administrator.

At the workstation that will act as the network source:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key  + E.
  2. Click the Map network drive button at the top of the window.
  3. Click the Drive button and select the letter you wish to use for this connection.
  4. Click the Browse button and locate the folder containing the data file.
  5. Select this folder and click OK.
  6. Check the box Reconnect at logon.
  7. Click Finish.
  8. Open EasyACCT.
  9. At the Company Selection screen, select System, then System Utilities, and then System Characteristics.
  10. In the Path for Company Data field, enter the shared location (starting with the mapped drive letter followed by any folder and subfolder, such as S:\EasyW\Data) for EasyACCT data.
  11. Click OK.
