In order to network Shepherd’s Staff, you must have the following set up:
Computers must be networked together.
» It’s recommended the network be hardwired as opposed to wireless. A wireless network will work but it increases the chance of data corruption when reading from and writing to the database.
» All computers using Shepherd’s Staff must have read/write access to the database location along with network/folder permissions to that location.
» Shepherd’s Staff needs a drive letter for the database location so a network drive must be mapped to the database location. (Warning: A unc path will not work)
» Once these requirements are set, you will be able to select the database using the “Select a Church” utility.
You will probably need to use the “Select Other Database” button within that utility to browse to the database location.
