Bringing an old StampManage data file into StampManage 2015

Customers with older STAMPDATA.MDB StampManage data files often ask how to copy their data file from a backup storage device or other computer to a new computer running StampManage 2015.

The steps to do this are:

Create a folder on the new machine that will contain the data folder, should be under the MY DOCUMENTS or PUBLIC DOCUMENTS folder.

Copy the old STAMPDATA.MDB file into the newly created folder

running StampManage 2015 on the new machine…choose

FILE > OPEN NEW DATABASE FILEā€¦

From the main menu, then select the file that you copied into the newly created folder.. The choose:

FILE > UPDATE STAMPMANAGE DATA FILE

Which should update the file to include all the new varieties from the 2015 Edition

It is good practice to EXIT then restart the software after doing this.

Home Inventory Service, can HomeManage Inventory multiple clients?

Question:
We are a home inventory service provider. Is your program structured to only provide an inventory for 1 person? What if you are doing inventories for multiple clients? Can you create separate inventories for different people and properties? If so how?

Answer:
Hi, sure you can inventory multiple locations. There is no limit to the number of locations that can be inventoried. You can also use the BACKUP and RESTORE feature to use different data files for different clients if needed.
