The security ID feature prevents unauthorized administrative access to a client file that has protection enabled.
This section is meant to provide you with detailed background knowledge for the CaseWare® Working Papers Data Store; how it operates, its requirements and how to repair the Data Store if an error occurs.
It is recommended that you keep a regular backup (once a week) of the Data Store. The backup method depends on whether an xBase or a SQL Data Store is being used.
Files with the file name extension DBF are database files. DBF files store the data for the Working Papers client. For example, the AM.DBF file contains account information (i.e., account numbers, descriptions, ratio classes etc.) for a client's working trial balance.
