Our pastors like to have a separate database on their own computers so that they can use the library function to record their own pastoral library and keep that separate from the general church library. Does anyone remember the instructions on how to create two separate links so that one links to the main database and the other links to their personal database?
You can setup a separate database on each machine by installing another copy of the program in a different directory ON EACH MACHINE. However, this copy of the program would not be able to sync with the other copy of the program easily.
Oh you can do specific backups of each area of the main shared database, then restore to each pastor's machine, but that is very involved and you could have problems with data overlay and/or data corruption.
My advice, if each pastor wants to keep track of their library separately, get them a library program for use or create a quick Access program, and not use Powerchurch for their personal library.
There are some library programs available on www.download.com
for $35 or so.
