Account Ability's database, AA2021.abs, is a robust, high-speed, embedded single-file database with SQL support. The data access layer is compiled directly into the server license (AA2021.exe), thus eliminating the need for special configuration libraries or a database server.
When Account Ability is first launched, AA2021.abs is automatically created in folder
<installation folder>\2021DATA (this is the default location)
If a prior year database, AA2020.abs, is found, transmitter, submitter and US Postal Service information are automatically rolled forward.
Although the default location will suffice for single user installations, you can move it to a new location on your network with a simple copy, paste and reallocate.
