HomeStar Bill of LadingHow Do I....Point the program to access a different database location.

7.26. Point the program to access a different database location.

If you have had to re-install or installed the software onto a new workstation and need to point the program to access the database that resides on a server or some other location, follow these instructions.

1. Run the program.  Normally if this is a new install and there is not a database installed, it will ask you a series of questions to point to one, or create a new one.  If you perhaps did not perform this task, and it is now pointing to a blank set of data files and you need to point to the actual database at a different location then Click on the Help menu, then About...

2. This will display the About screen. Here you will see the current location the program is pointing at to access the database.

3. Click on this link to see the options for the location. You have two choices.  In this case, select the Create/Open New Database.

4. This will display a browse for location screen where you would select the actual location of your database you wish to use. When you get to that location, click OK and you should be all set.
