  • Registration Number – The registration number that you were issued by our office for Total Office Manager. When you installed Total Office Manager, the program displayed a site code. You called our office and were given this number. This number will only work on one computer. You can’t edit this field.

  • Database Name and Path – Reports the filename and location of the currently open database (company file).  The database location is reported from the workstation’s perspective, which means if your IT professional has “mapped” a drive from the workstation to a network server location, the entire UNC ( Universal Naming Convention) path is not reported.  Nonetheless, following the reported path from the workstation will lead to the database file.
