Manage libraries

To open a company file, it needs to be in an AccountRight library. There are 3 libraries to choose from:

  • My Library - for company files stored on your computer

  • Online - for company files stored in the cloud

  • Network Library - for company files stored on another computer in a local network

Where is my AccountRight library?

The company files in a library are stored in a specific location.

Here are the details:

My Library

This library...

is located here...

My Library

AccountRight PC Edition

If you've installed the PC Edition, the default AccountRight library location is a folder called My AccountRight Files in This PC\Documents\MYOB (or C:\Users\<user.name>\Documents\MYOB).

AccountRight Server Edition

If you've installed the AccountRight Server Edition, the default AccountRight library location is a folder called My AccountRight Files in C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB.

AccountRight 2013 and earlierIf you're using an old AccountRight version, such as AccountRight 2013, the default AccountRight library location is a folder called My AccountRight Files in
C:\Users\Public\Documents\MYOB.

Online

The online library is in the cloud. Learn more about working online.

The online library also displays additional information, such as the version number your company file is compatible with and its status.

Network Libraries

A network library is like a shortcut to the My Library folder on another computer—typically the server. This lets you share a company file across multiple computers in a local network.

Company files in a network library will appear in My Library on the host computer (which will need AccountRight Server Edition installed), but will appear under Network Library on other computers.

See To add a network library below for instructions.

Note that you can't store or share company files from a NAS drive.

Have you considered online? With your file online, you won't need to maintain server infrastructure, you can easily add users, your file is always current, and it's secure from drive crashes and theft.
