Enabling other MYOB applications to run with MYOB AE (Practice Manager)

Configuration keys are pre-defined by the system. Different configuration keys control how some functions behave and are used to extend the functions delivered. Here we explain how to set up configuration keys required to run other MYOB applications with Accountants Enterprise.

The application contains configuration entries that determine the relevant program and data locations for the following applications:

  • MYOB AE Tax

  • (Australia) MYOB AE Corporate Compliance

  • (Australia) MYOB AE Accounts

  • MYOB AE MAS.

When a program is configured for use, you can highlight a client on the Find Client page and launch the application from the Tasks bar. The application opens showing the appropriate window for the client.

Before you can use an application, your system administrator must set up the configuration keys.
