how to setup quickbooks using network for single user

network does not allow open quickbook file in redirected folders

Answer

I appreciate you keeping me posted on this situation, john,

In QuickBooks Desktop, any folders will do as long as the folder and windows access permission are all properly set up.

To start with, let’s set up the folder and Windows access permissions to share company files. To verify if permissions are set correctly, check this out:

  1. Right-click the folder that contains the company file and choose Properties.
  2. On Security tab, click Advanced.
  3. Choose QBDataServiceUserXX and select Edit.
  4. Make sure that the following settings are set to Allowed.

  • Traverse Folder/Execute File
  • List Folder/Read Data
  • Read Attributes
  • Read Extended Attributes
  • Create Files/Write Data
  • Create Folders/Append Data
  • Write Attributes
  • Write Extended Attributes
  • Read Permissions

Once done, change folder permissions then set windows access permissions to share company files.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
