Folder Properties General tab
Title: Displays the Name of the Folder selected.
Reference: Displays an optional user defined code. This code identifies folders when folder links are used. Altering the reference field in the Ledgers folder may result in errors when logging in. Unless all user preferences have been modified, do not alter the reference field for the Ledgers folder.
Local/Network Path: Displays the location of the directory that this folder represents. When creating a new folder, if the Reference field has been defined it is used as the default sub-directory name.
Contains master data files: Check this option if ledger master data files are to be stored in the folder. If it is not checked, the master data files are expected to be located in the system directory (\SOL64). The Master Data Files option may simplify system maintenance in a large installation where MAS and related ledgers are stored in many different directory locations. Master Data Files may also be referred to as application data files or format files. By default, the checkbox for Contains master data files is selected.
- Contains master program files: Check this option if ledger master program files are to be stored in the folder. If it is not checked, the system will look for the master program files in the system directory (\SOL64). Master program files are the software application. This checkbox is disabled for SQL folders and all master program files used by SQL are located in \SOL64. By default, the checkbox for Contains master program files is not selected.
