SAP shared folder

Dear All,

Our customer need to export files to wordl and PDF. What should be the path of the folders in General Settings?

I cannot see any folder I can use in B1_SHR.

Should I use a local folder or a share folder? Thanks.

Regards

Yuka

    Are you sure it was there before upgrade? If that is the case, better log a support ticket. Hope the problem can be fixed. Otherwise might be a bug. Need to wait for the latest PL to get rid of the problem.

      If you install from local, the password asked would be for SQL Server database. You must have right to the DB either by Trusted Connection or direct DB rights.

    This change has to be controlled by a super user. None of normal user should be given such authorization.

      The setting can only have one. Your best option is installing B1 to the same path. If not, try to define a user variable just like TEMP to unify the path.

    You can use both. If the customer do not have enough user right to the shared folder, better use local.

    Thanks,

    The path of the folder in General Settings are common in All the workstation.

    The path should be the always *
    SERVER NAMe\B1_SHR*

    Microsoft Word Templates Folder :
    Server Name\B1_SHR\word\English\

    Microsoft Excel Folder :
    Server Name\B1_SHR\ExclDocs\

    Pictures Folder :
    Server Name\B1_SHR\BitMaps\

    Attachments Folder :
    Server Name\B1_SHR\Attachments

    *Close the thread if issue solved.

    Regards

      Thank you for the reply. I was wondering why we don't have attachment, bitmap, excelDoc folders in B1_SHR? It was there before. But after upgrading, I cannot find it anymore. I cannot ask everybody install SAP client on the same path.
