When attempting to configure an AccountRight file to Client Accounting, you may find that some files don't appear in the list of available AccountRight files to configure.

This can occur for both Online and Desktop files and across different users in AE/AO.

If you can't see any AccountRight files

Normally, if you've configured your practice's my.MYOB settings, a list of all online files that your practice's MYOB Login has access to, will be displayed when you go to select a company file.

If you can't see any online files when selecting an AccountRight file (or even an Essentials file) to configure, check your practice's my.MYOB Login has been configured in AE/AO.

To check your Practice my.MYOB Settings

  1. From within AE/AO, go to Maintenance > Maintenance Map > Online > Practice my.MYOB Settings.
  2. Check that the email address in the MYOB Login field has been invited to your client files as an Set a user's online access level

If the Practice MYOB login is correct:

Check the following:

  • On the PC hosting your AccountRight library, make sure that the status of the MYOB AccountRight Library and MYOB AccountRight API service is Running. To check the status:
    1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run window.
    2. In the Open field, type services.msc and click OK.
    3. From the list of services, locate MYOB AccountRight Library and MYOB AccountRight API and ensure the service status is Started. If this status displays Stopped or is blank, right-click on the service and choose Start.

  • The PC hosting your AccountRight library has the same version of AccountRight (Server Edition) that your client has installed. You can have multiple versions installed, but one of those versions must be the same as your client's version.
  • You have also installed the latest version of the AccountRight API. See Installing the AccountRight API for details.
  • If you're using a Proxy server, ensure you've Configuring your Firewall or Proxy for MYOB AE/AO.
If you can see some AccountRight files, but not all

If you've searched the entire library and you can see company files but can't find the one file you want to work on in the list of ledgers to configure, try the following:

If you've configured...Check...
AccountRight (online)

  • there are no special characters ( / , &, @, $, %, #, * ) in the company file name

  • the company file has been saved to your Network Library (if applicable) or My Library folder.

If you need to access company files across multiple computers, consider setting up a Network Library in AccountRight. With a Network Library, users can easily access all files stored in the network library folder. For details, see Set up a network.
