Ensure Open/Save Company in QuickBooks
Posted on 2015-01-07
Our client is using Windows 7 Professional and QuickBooks 2013. They have company files stored on their servers "D" drive commonly used for data containers. On their computers this drive is mapped as their "F" drive.
Given this is an accounting office, there are hundreds of company files on the "F" drive, and this list is always changing. When they go to open a company file, the company they want is NOT in the "previously opened" companies. Further, we don't want it to be as their too many companies. In all cases the accountants click on "open or restore an existing company". This is where the problem arises.
Sometimes the open company no longer points to the QuickBooks directory on the "F" drive. Also, when a new company is created and they want to save it, sometimes directory is NOT the QuickBooks company files folder on the "F: drive.
Question : how do I ensure that when they OPEN an existing company OR SAVE a new company that they directory is ALWAYS points to "F:\QuickBooks Company Files"?
Requirement: that they start with QuickBooks whereas clicking on file in a folder is not an acceptable option.
