How to Email your MiBase data file

The program information and the data is stored in a single file called mibasev7.mde. It is by default in the c:mibase folder of the computer. Because the file contains your information it needs to be sent and returned while the library is closed, otherwise information processed while I have the file will be lost.

For older versions of mibase the program file is called mibasev6.mde or mibasev4.mde, this version also contains History.mdb (history of loans) that needs to be emailed also. You will find these files in c:program filesmibasev6 or c:program filesmibasev4 folder.

The mibasev7.mde file can be over 5MB in size so it needs to be compressed (zipped) before emailing. If your email client (yahoo, gmail accounts) does not support emailing files over 1 MB then click here for more instructions.
