Answers
How can I disable the 'Backup Reminder' displayed before exiting Account Ability?
  • From Account Ability's Preferences menu, select Desktop.
  • Remove the check in front of the preference Remind Me to Backup on Exit.
  • I installed Account Ability on a new computer and restored a backup. Why doesn't Account Ability see the data?
    The database was probably restored to a different folder on the new computer.

    Solution:

  • Start Account Ability
  • Close any open tax forms
  • Select Re-allocate -> Account Ability's YYYY Database on the Module menu
  • Look in the YYYYDATA folder that you restored
  • Double-click the database file (e.g. AA2015.abs, AA2016.abs, etc.)
  • Exit and restart Account Ability
  • Why is the 'Backup/Restore' selection on the 'Module' menu disabled (dim)?
    Either you have a tax form open or another user is logged on.
  • The Logged Users... selection on the Module menu shows who is logged on.
  • Why doesn't Account Ability remind me to Backup on exit?
    Either the Remind Me to Backup on Exit indicator is not checked or another user is logged on.
  • You will find the Remind Me to Backup on Exit indicator on the Preferences -> Desktop menu.
  • The Logged Users... selection on the Module menu shows who is logged on.
  • Can I backup (restore) a single client's 1099s or W2s?
    Yes. The Backup... and Restore... selections on each form's File menu have been designed primarily for this purpose.
