How to access payroll data file on file server

Hi All Guru


Our MYOB payroll data files are stored on file server. one of our workstation has gone dead & we replaced it. MYOB Payroll software was installeld on new workstation. file path has changed to same as the other workstation, when opening myob payroll on the new workstation, only sample file "clearwater" availble to choose instead of all files I have.What should I do so that new workstaion can access/open payroll on file server?


Many Thanks!

Re: How to access payroll data file on file server

Hi @Leo123 


MYOB Payroll NZ (Desktop) is designed to have the payroll folder stored locally in relation to that computer that is using the Payroll.


In theory, you can go to Tools>>Options>>System and update the Path where Data files reside to the server location, however, as indicated it not tested and supported across a network/server. You may also need to go to enable the Show the Welcome screen each time MYOB Payroll starts to allow you to select the desired payroll folder. 

Kind regards,
