Single save file + attachments folders issue

Post by azertyuiop »

Dear All,


I first and foremost wish to warmly thank the developpers for their efforts and work behind  MMEX, I've used it for my
personal finances for a couple of months now and must admit it's truly
amongst the best cross-platform home-finance software I've used.

This being said, I do encounter some problems with saved bases which creates some issues:

The only way to save my modifications in a database is by saving it using "Save as"  (cf. screenshot).
Which means that whenever I make a change to an existing database, I must re-"Save as" the base as a different MMEX save file. This causes the problem that when I open that new version database, I must redefine the attachment file every time and a new MMEX_USER-DATABASE_NAME attachment file has been created as subfolder.


Any solution so I can keep my MMEX user file in one save file ?


Br,

Hi, MMEX isn't like Word where you have to save every time. It automatically save the database on changes, so you don't need to do anything, simply close MMEX and re-open

I don't understand the problem as well.
Some user reported similar problem when he try to open backup file.
I recommend to move DB to some folder then at mmex start open exectly this file.

Thank you for your response.
I didn't know I could close MMEX without saving and it would save the modifications anyway!

Thanks again!
