    Mary,

    We are running NV2 on Pentium 4 computers that run at 2.80GHz with 1 GB of RAM which is a contemporary system for today. The AMD system you are thinking of purchasing should be comparable but I would ask your computer supplier if the system is comparable. We do not have any AMD systems here. Yes, computer speed/memory is required to run NV2.

    Each workstation and server must be a Pentium 4 (or comparable/faster) with the specs. above and have hard disks of their own. Each workstation will have NV2 installed and must be able to connect to the server offering the NV2 books through TCP/IP (which is common on all systems today). A hard disk is required on each workstation to maintain a workstation database and run Excel for printing.

    NV1 was not multiuser and the approach in your third question does work. You are either copying the NV1 books from each machine to your server (through windows explorer) or have a batch program written for you that does the copying of the NV1 books to the server for you. You need to verify this on your end.

    In NV2, the NV2 server listens to requests made of it by each workstation connected to it via TCP/IP and updates the application databases (NV2 books). Each NV2 workstation has its own workstation database which is located in C:/NV2/WORKSTATION (if you had installed NV2 in C:/NV2) which maintains that workstations NV2 windowing system and workstation logon tables.

    Each workstation can work in single user or multiuser or both at the same time. NV1 was single user only. Like NV1, which required that you point nv.exe to a network drive where the books existed, NV2 also requires that you type the server IP or computer name offering the application databases (NV2 books). In NV1, the books database (DATAD.NV) stored all the information pertaining to that database. In NV2, the same is true but in single user, there are two databases that must be backed up (workstation database, and application database). In multiuser, there are three (workstation database, application database, server database).

    Productivity in NV2 is similar ro NV1. Take into account that “Default Values” and BLKCOPY/BLKPASTE buffers will need to be set. Some actions may take a few seconds longer in NV2 but others have been found to be faster. The ability to see transactions in total accounts makes NV2 more productive.

    Setting up user windows and the length of time running your workstations with several sets of books will push past 512 MB. Also the number of processes running on your windows system before NV2 starts.

    You can backup your NV2 databases using whatever method you trust.

    I suggest that you read the NewViews 2.0 manual (DO NOT PRINT IT. It’s about 600+ pages) for further information about running a server. a workstation and Appendix B – NV1 users.

    Regards,

    After you have read Appendix B – NV1 Users and have run ATYPE/TATYPE, NOTES2, NVEXPORT, and NV1 Import, see the documentation under the NewViews 2.0 Manual for The Server and The Workstation.

    Install the NV2 installation file you had downloaded on your two workstations and then on your server computer. When installing NV2 make sure your are the administrator for the machine and when installing choose the recommended installation for all users.

    Once installed using the recommended option, your will have a new menu choice in your windows start > All Programs or Programs menu called NewViews 2.0. Under NewViews 2.0 there is Manual. Click Manual and plus on NewViews 2.0 Manual and then click on the plus next to Appendix B – NV1 Users.

    I suggest that you read this section first.

    Regards,

    Frank,

    Programming function keys will be added to NV2 in a future release. I can’t give you a date at this time.

    Another possiblity to reconciling many open items with the same reconcile text is to use Fill Column. Block your open items (ALT BS ALT BE or Ctrl KB Ctrl KK) and then type you reconcile text on the first blocked item and then right mouse click Tools Fill Column (or ALT TF).

    Regards,

    Send me the NV1_NV2.log file which is located in your books directory that you have specified in directory in NV1 Import. EMail it to support@qwpage.com with the same subject mentioned above.

    If the Windows style menu is turned off in your NV2 books then right mouse anywhere in your NV2 books and click on the plus next to view, plus on Menu Bar and click on display. This will show the standard windows menu bar at the top of your books.

    Once activated, you can now use the short cut keys assigned to each command.

    In your Bank under NewViews > Account > Bank under the blue table (top right pane) choose the window select button and click reconcile. Click the unreconciled field for the particular bank account which will show you all of the open items in that account. In the green table below type in your reconcile text in the reconcile field for the item you wish to reconcile and issue the keyboard commands:

    ALT EC – Edit Copy

    Cursor down and then issue ALT EP (Edit Pate) on your next open item. To clear the reconcile text issue ALT EC on an unreconciled item in the reconcile field.

    For thoose familiar with the control keys, there is Ctrl KW which sets the reconcile text for use with Ctrl KR. In the windows style menu the keystrokes are ALT EVS and ALT EVG respectively (Edit Default Value Set Edit Default Value Get). To clear, issue Ctrl KC.

    Gary,

    When you had installed NV2 you had chosen to install NV2 for a single user. Install NV2 again and choose the recommended button (All users).

    If the option to install for all users is grayed out then cancel the installation and then right mouse click on the NV2 installation file you had download and click Run As. Click the following user button and run as the administrator and type in the administrator password.

    Regards,

    Martin

    Go to http://www.qwpage.com and download NV2 like you did before and install it in the same directory where you had installed the previous NV2 update.

    You will not have to re-register.

    There is another NV2 installation you can download from our web site which includes an updated NV2 license agreement. Later today, there should service pack 2 on our web site to download (I suspect you running the first NV2 download = Service pack 0). Service pack 1 was available for download last Monday.

    Are you clicking on workstation within NewViews 2.0 from the windows start menu? If you had copied the NV2 workstation icon to your desktop, review the icon properties from the workstation desktop icon with the workstation icon within NewViews 2.0 – I thinking they are different.

    Reproduce the Bug error and sent a screen shot of the error including the steps you did to produce the error and send the screen shot as an attachment to support@qwpage.com. Include your NV2 serial number.

    To produce a screen of the error, have your NV2 books on your screen and move the error dialog within the NV2 screen and press the Print Screen key (this captures the screen to the windows clipboard). Click on your windows start button, accessories, paint. Within paint, either press the Ctrl key + V or from the paint menu, click Edit Paste. The screen shot will appear in paint. Save the file as a bmp file type and then attach this file to an email to support@qwpage.com.

    Within your email text, explain how you produced this error.

    Regards,

    You can block all accounts of the same type and then run ATYPE and press enter on the appropriate account type.

    Accounts that have not been ATYPE’d come in to NV2 as type General.

    If you have many reports that are profit and loss reports that total to a consolidated Profit and Loss report, you can go to the consolidated P&L and block all Revenue accounts and then issue /Go runProc (/GR) TATYPE which is the equivalent to ATYPE but it works on total accounts. Repeat this for expense accounts.

    The original structure will come into NV2 if the accounts have not been ATYPE’d (under Reports). It is important to ATYPE the accounts properly to show the proper Sales, Expense, Receivable, Payable, Cost of Goods Sold, Employee, General accounts.
