    Resolution
     

    Note: This article only helps determine the location of companies on your hard drive(s). It is still up to you to determine if you have found the correct version of your company. It is strongly recommended that you make no changes to the company until you have determined it is the proper version. One way of doing this is to go to Reports & FormsCompany and run the Audit Trail Report for the appropriate time frame.

    • Each company has its own folder (directory) within the data path, refer to Article ID 10165: “How to find data path and program path” in the Related Resources section for help finding your data path.
    • All files in the folder are required for the company to function properly.
    • Company folders are named with an abbreviation of the company name, refer to Article ID 14960: “Company data folder name” in Related Resources section.

    Option I: Within Sage

    • Within an open company, select MaintainCompany Information and locate the Directory line in the window that opens.
      Note: The directory line will indicate the location of the open company.
    • Click FileOpen Company.
      Note: any companies located in your data path will be listed.
    • On the main Sage window, with no companies open, click Open an existing company.
      Note: this displays an opened companies history, with the location of each company given in the Directory column.

    Option II: Search for your company files using Windows search

    Note:

    • Before searching, locate your data path, refer to Article ID 10165: “How to find data path and program path” in Related Resources.
    • Each valid Sage company directory contains the file COMPANY.DAT.

    2. Click Search.
    3. Select All Files and Folders.
    4. In All or part of file name, enter company.dat.
    5. Click Search.
    6. Make sure View is set to Detail, the location of each search result is given in the Folder column.
    7. Company directories outside of the data path should be moved into the data path, by copying the folder from its current location, and pasting into the data path directory.

    Windows Vista/7/8:

    1. Open Computer.
    2. Click into the Search field.
    3. Select All Files and Folders.
    4. Enter COMPANY.DAT.
    5. Make sure View is set to Detail. The location of each search result is given in the Folder column.
    6. Company directories outside of the data path should be moved into the data path, by copying the folder from its current location, and pasting into the data path directory.

    Option III: Locate your company files using the Registry Editor

    1. On the keyboard, press WINDOWS KEY+R keys.
    2. Type regedit and click OK.
    3. On the left pane, browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Peachtree\Version.

      • Version 2017: 24
      • Version 2016: 23
      • Version 2015: 22
      • Version 2014: 21
      • and so forth for older versions.
    5. Expand Open History, and select the flavor folder beneath it (PTXA, PCW, PPA, etc.).
    6. On the right pane a list of recently opened companies is displayed, with the company directory of each given in the Data column.
