If you have OfficeReports installed on more than one PC, it might be relevant to copy files that determine the layout settings from the one computer to the other:
You can copy the database and chart layout files from: C:\Users\Public\OfficeReports.
The macro files are copied from C:\Users\Public\OfficeReports\template
Paste the files to the same paths on the next computer.
All the OfficeReports layouts defined on the #2 computer will be overwritten!
In order to use the same Layout definitions, users can share the same Layout database and l macro files. With this setup, all users will always have an up-to-date local copy of this Layout database and the macro file, which means people using a laptop, can work with OfficeReports even when they are not at the office.
To share Layout definitions, please define a shared folder and copy the Layout files:
On a shared network drive, which all OfficeReports users in the organization have access to, please define a folder, e.g. “.\OfficeReports”
From a PC where OfficeReports is installed, please find the folder ‘C:\Users\Public\OfficeReports’ and copy the file ‘ORSettings.accdb’ and the sub-folder ‘\template’
Paste the file and the folder to the shared folder on the network drive.
Now, on each machine you want to use OfficeReports, do the following:
OfficeReports will use the shared database as soon as you in OfficeReports menu ‘Settings’à’Global Settings’ insert the path to the shared folder on your network drive:
With this setup, all users will always have an up-to-date local copy of the Layout database and the macro file.
