Multiple company files open at once using AccountRight Live

Hi All We have a client that has multiple company files and are using MYOB AccountRight Live - they would like to be able to have more than one file open at once. Does anyone know if this is possible? And, if yes, how do you achieve it? It was always possible with pre-Live versions of AccountRight. Many thanks, Starlight

Hi @Starlight

 

AccountRight 201x allows you to have multiple company files. 

Like AccountRight Classic, to open multiple company files you do need to have multiple instances of the program running. The best way to achieve this is to launch the program once to open the file. You would then minimize that instance of the program running (to get back to the desktop) and then click on the icon again to launch another instance of the program to have another company file open.

 

Do let us know how you get on and if you require further assistance.


Kind Regards,
Steven

Re: Multiple company files open at once using AccountRight Live

Hi @Starlight, @Steven_M, if I may add a couple of comments:

 

- if you normally have your icon located on the task bar, to run a second instance you will need to right-click on that taskbar icon, and then select the application name.  Just clicking on the taskbar icon will only display the existing company.

 

- when you open the reports index and run reports, each task opens in a separate window, indeed you can go back to the report index and run other reports without closing any of them. So you can very quickly have multiple windows open, which when running a second company as well can be confusing.
