How to Save the DB

Post by MartinGK »

I would like to save my DB upon exiting, but the only option is "Save As." I must give a new name each time I save since MMEx will not let me Save over the existing DB. What am I missing? I cannot find any info in the Helps regarding the SAVING process.

You do not need to save DB on existing. All changes writes into the DB on the fly.
Save as only for copy DB to some another path.

Are you saving the database as a backup? (not sure what DB stands for)

I have had issues with losing transactions after I enter them. I come back the next day and they are not there. Is there no way to "force" a save?

For some reason, I am having repeated problems with this. I made a number of entries on Friday and left the problem running all weekend. I finally shut it down today and reopened it, and the entries from Friday has disappeared.

What might I be doing wrong?
