COPYING DATA TO A NEW COMPUTER

Sometimes a new user will download Retail Plus onto a home or laptop computer for evaluation and then start entering some of their own inventory. Later they need to install Retail Plus on the store computer and transfer the new data to it. The best way to do this is:


1- On the source computer run the Backup command and let Retail Plus write the data files to a folder called Backup on the local C: drive.

2 - Create a fresh installation of Retail Plus on the destination computer then copy the Backup folder to it's C: drive. The easiest way to do this is with a USB memory key or thumb drive. Avoid using a CD because Windows changes the file attributes to Read Only on a CD. Copy the Backup folder onto the C: drive of the destination machine.

3 - On the destination machine create an empty inventory file with the same name as the one you are transferring.

4 - Run the Restore command and point the file dialog at the inventory file in the Backup folder.

TROUBLESHOOTING QUICKBOOKS LINKS

If you get an error message when updating to or from QuickBooks it is most likely caused by one of the following:

- The Chart Of Accounts is missing one of the accounts specified in the setup instructions, or the Account Type is not the right one. (see Appendix Q in the manual).

- The list of payment methods in Retail Plus does not match the one in QuickBooks, or is not spelled the same way i.e. Amex instead of American Express.
