When I try to get into my shared database I get a long message saying "It could not open the file seleted" and suggets that there may be some phantom users in the database.

What do I do.

Here are several things to check for when sharing a database.
First, each person running ManagePro needs to set the Default ManagePro Network Directory path to the shared network directory,the directory that contains the shared database. To do this, launch ManagePro on each PC and openany database. Then go to the FILE/PREFERENCES pull down menu and choose the NETWORK option. In the box for the Default ManagePro Network directory, enter the path for your shared network directory. It is important that all ManagePro users point to the same the Common Network Directory because that directory has a file in it called MPRO.NET which keeps track of all the people sharing a single database and makes sure the proper file and record locking takes place.
Second make sure there are not MPRO.NET files in any other location except for the shared network directory. So have each person using ManagePro search their own hard drives fro any MPRO.NET files and delete them if they find them.
Third, the MPRO.NET file in the shared network directory might be damaged. Get everyone out of ManagePro then delete the MPRO.NET file.Now re-open the shared database and a new MPRO.NET file will be created automatically.
Lastly, you can get everyone out of the databse and run the Clear User Utility to make sure there are no phantom users in the user table.
