Now I am completely confused. I don't know that either computer is the HQ. I don't remember being asked that question when we installed POS version 10.0.
QB is and will remain on the server which is in an office, not on the sales floor. It has always been that way for confidentialty reasons.
I know that POS exports files to QB. I have been using that feature since 2005.
What does any of this have to do with the fact that QB freezes up if POS is open on the same register for any amount of time?
Yesterday I closed POS on the server and didn't have any problems with QB for the rest of the day. Then when it was time to close the business for the day, I opened POS transfered the files and backed up, then closed POS.
Then I backed up and closed QB. I didn't have any trouble with QB freezing up with POS open for the period of time it took to transfer the data.
My computer for the server is roughly 2 years old and was built by my tech guy specifically to be the server. It has lots of room left on its ram
the cash register is not a powerful computer and I had to add ram to run POS 10.0.
So I repeat , will keeping POS closed during the day on the server stop QB from freezing up?
