Faster pricing percentage updates
« on: March 05, 2021, 12:59:32 pm »
If you are doing a large global pricing update and your data is on a network then there is a quicker way of doing it.

Make a note of where your data is currently located. This appears at the top of the main screen.

Create three new directories on your local drive C: and call then MyOldBackup, MyNewBackup and MyData.

Ensure TPN Invoicing is not being updated and don't allow any changes while you carry out this procedure.

Go into Utilities and Backup. Backup your system to C:\MyOldBackup

Once done go into Utilities and Datapath. Alter the data directory to C:\MyData

Now go into Utilities and Restore Data.

Locate the file called BACKUP.ZIP in C:\MyOldBackup and restore this. You are now working with your existing data but on the local C: drive.

Perform your pricing changes.

When done go into Utilities and Backup. Backup the data to C:\MyNewBackup

Now go into Utilities and Datapath. Alter this back to your original network location.

Go into Utilities and Restore. Pick the file BACKUP.ZIP from C:\MyNewBackup and let it restore.

Your amended data is now on the network drive. You have a copy of the original data in C:\MyOldData

Updating on a local drive can be much faster than the network.
