  • data linking not done correctly??

    Posted by Jerry Ranch on 08/23/2022 at 5:22 PM

    I installed the newest version of NW and OBED/RALLY apps. I link both apps to the same myShare and myOBT files. I created the new Obed/rally events successfully. But when I exexcute the NW app, it brings up only the current and previous OB/RALLY shows – none of the NW shows are listed

    Each application has its own _data file which contains your shows, trials, classes and entries. This info is specific to the application. The myShare file contains your dogs, people and club and can be shared, hence the name, across all applications.

    Both applications can link to the same myShare. You might want to store it in the RyKris folder above all the application folders to indicate it is used by more than one. If you do you will just need to remember to relink it when you upgrade because the upgrade by default will link to the myShare in the application data folder.

    myNWT should be linked to myNWT_data and myOBT should be linked to myOBT_data.

    I hope that helps.

    I linked the NWT to the OBT data – I now understand the difference

    mySHare is the same for both
