An AccountRight library is a defined location where AccountRight company files are stored. An AccountRight library can be located on your computer (called My library), on a network computer (called Network libraries), or online.
Storing company files in a library makes it easier to manage files. As AccountRight knows where your file is, you won’t need to navigate to your file when opening or upgrading it.
Opening files stored in a library
To view files stored in your library, including the sample files that came with your software, click Open in the AccountRight welcome window. The Library Browser window appears. If you need more information, such as the location of your file, click Learn about AccountRight libraries in this window or see Manage libraries.
Opening company files stored on another computer
If the company file you want to open is located on a networked computer, you first need to add the library for that computer to your library (it’s similar to creating a shortcut to the library on that computer). Once added, you can access any AccountRight company files on that computer in the same way as you open files in your local library.
AccountRight libraries can be accessed from any computer in your network that uses AccountRight.
For more information, see Manage libraries.
Opening company files stored online
If you have a AccountRight subscription, or you've been invited to access an online company file, you can open that file online. This means there's one source of truth for your business data—and it's safely stored in the cloud.
