FTP Database to GO Software

If none of these things work for you then you may need to send us a copy of your database. Please don't attempt to EMAIL your database to us as even a zipped up backup will probably be too large to get through most email servers (as most ISPs block large attachments).

You can send us your data using an automatic process from within the program itself using this procedure ...
  1. RUN YOUR PROGRAM AS NORMAL
    Just start the program as you normally would - but don't do anything before you follow the next steps.
    If you want to send us an older version of your data (eg RENT0405.Mdb) then you can just open that database as normal and follow these notes while it is open. Don't forget to change back to your normal database again afterwards.

  2. CLICK ON THE DATABASE MENU

  3. Choose FTP DATABASE TO GO SOFTWARE
    This will automatically zip up your database and send us a copy

  13. SEND US A DETAILED EMAIL DESCRIBING YOUR PROBLEM

    Customers often send us emails saying something like "can't save the address for a new client". You need to tell us WHICH client and WHAT address you were trying to save. The more detailed information that you send us the easier it will be for us to look into your problem. Make sure that you send us the CODES rather than the NAMES for the customer, landlord, employee etc where you are having a problem.
