This is a simple step by step guide to get flawless sync with Google Drive

1. I have set as a path for my Windows PC version of mmex a SHARED Folder (i need to have a common db with my wife) within Google Drive .eg ....\Google Drive\_SHARED FOLDER\mmEX\mmEx.mmb
2. On Android phone navigate through the Google Drive app and find the Database : mmEx.mmb
3. Set it so it is available OFFLINE
4. Run the MMEX app on your phone , Through the main manu Choose Open Database - Other - Open From Drive - Choose the folder with the mmEx.mmb

5. NOW THE IMPORTANT STEP !!!
If you wish to enter transactions from ANDROID device you should ALWAYS perform STEP 4 , BEFORE you start entering transactions AND ALWAYS HIT SYNCHRONISE after you FINISH
