   Question/Topic:
Should I use Single-User or Multi-User Mode?

Usually, on a stand-alone computer you will use the Single-User Mode and on a network you will use a Multi-User Mode. However, in some situations you may want to use a different User Mode.

  • On a stand-alone computer, if there is more than one person accessing the program, and if you want every person to have his/her own private database (possibly protected by a password) you should use a Multi-User Mode.
  • On a stand-alone computer, if you create many different databases, and if you want to organize databases into logical groups (accounts) you could use a Multi-User Mode (e.g.: personal databases, business databases, other databases).
  • On a network, if you don't need security, and you want a simple setup you might want to use a Single-User Mode - in this mode multiple users can still access the same database at the same time.
  • On a stand-alone computer or on a network, if there is more than one person accessing the program, and if you want one group of users to modify records and another group of users to view only records you should use a Multi-User Mode. Create at least one account and set the public database access rights to read only.


How can I change/define user modes?

  • On the Options menu click Options.
  • In the Options window click Users Tab.
  • Click Multi-User System.
  • If you switched to Multi-User mode by accident log in as Supervisor (User ID: Supervisor) and change Options back to 1-User Mode (click on Options/Users).
